I was born and raised in the Grand Rapids Area. I started working in radio in Whitehall in 1985. Went back to Grand Rapids for less than a year and got a better gig in Muskegon in September of 1986. I also worked at a few restuarants and in construction while going to school before going full time in radio.
I started rockin' with WMRR in March of 2009 and never looked back! I always loved rock music and finally get to work with it everyday!

Kid Rock has lifted the lid on the shady practice of ticket re-sales in the music industry, revealing he is guilty of "scalping" seats to his own shows.
The musician, who recently announced plans for a budget-friendly summer tour, has confessed his team allegedly resold tickets to his concerts on exchange website StubHub.com for more than their retail value. Rock made the confession in an interview with TV host Piers Morgan, telling the presenter he fears many others artists are making money in the same way.
"I'm going to tell people, a lot of artists already do it," he said. "I think I've been guilty of it in the past, too. We take some of our tickets, we put them on StubHub, overcharge with what the market determines they're worth ... I'm taking 1,000 of them and I'm scalping them."
Rock insists he is making amends by taking a pay cut to provide low-price tickets for his upcoming $20 Best Night Ever tour, with seats selling for as little as $20 and he will also keep food and drink prices down and provide free coffee at the end of every show.
"People are going to be pleasantly surprised when they come in there and they see, you know, four hot dogs and two Cokes for $20," he said. "We're going to give free coffee at the end."
Kid Rock will kick off the tour in Virginia on June 28.
