BIOGRAPHY

My radio career began in 1967 at KOTN in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, owned by Baltimore broadcasting legend Buddy Deane.  After attending the University of Missouri and University of Arkansas, I worked at WOAI/San Antonio, KTLK/Denver, and CKLW (The Big Eight) in Windsor/Detroit.  In 1976 I moved to WAKY in Louisville, where I met Karen.  We married in 1987.  Meanwhile, I became a program director at KRMD/Shreveport.  Success there sent me to WPOC in Baltimore, where the staff won two CMA Station of the Year awards.

In 1997 Karen and I moved to Nashville, where I was VP/Country for McVay Media, consulting dozens of radio stations in the U.S. and Canada.  Ten years later I went to work for my biggest client, Regent Communications, as VP/Programming.  When Townsquare Media took over Regent I stayed for a couple of years before opening my own consultancy.  In 2017 I retired and we moved back to Louisville, where we enjoy being closer to Karen's family and our wonderful grandchildren.
Frankly, I'm baffled when I hear people say they are bored with retirement.  Karen and I love living in Louisville and there are times when I honestly wonder how I ever found time to work for all those years.  My current project is a book about the Moody-Toliver feud that took place in southern Indiana from 1870-75.  It's a much more interesting story than you might think.  The research and writing has been a real joy, but it will take many more months of work before I expect to start looking for a publisher.​​

Meanwhile, I also enjoy public speaking, whether it is at state broadcasting conventions or local civic groups.  My radio career has provided plenty of anecdotes and introduced me to some very memorable characters.  My contact information is below.
