Birthplace & Growing Up:
I was born on Fort Gordon in Augusta, Georgia: May 28, 1964. I never did stick around long enough to pick up the accent. My early childhood was spent in parts of Connecticut, Rhode Island and Worcester before moving to the Whitinsville/Northbridge area halfway through my third grade year… and that’s where I stayed until I graduated from Northbridge High School in 1982. I moved back to Worcester later that year to attend college.
Where did you get your start in radio?
Worcester State College in 1982. I devoted more time to the college radio station, WSCW, and the campus television station, TV3, than I did to the classroom; I couldn’t get enough… Then; in 1986, I was hired by the former WFTQ 1440 AM to do the overnight shift and traffic reports for Jay Bruce’s morning drive show. I also worked for 14Q’s sister station (at the time), 107.3 FM WAAF in promotions.
