Helloooo! Welcome to MY PAGE! My own little chunk of the World Wide Web. It's very exciting.
My career started while in college at a little Top 40 station in Clare, Michigan (the Gateway to the North). Not only was I a weekend DJ, but I was also the station janitor. No kidding! I did what was needed to break into the biz, even if it included scrubbing toilets.
After Clare, it was on to Saginaw, Michigan, a decade in Kalamazoo (yes, there really is...), north to Grand Rapids, and then south to Greenville, where I'm excited to take over afternoons on MY 102.5!!!
I met the love of my life in Kalamazoo at a wine festival. Kelcey told me on that first night: "You'll never meet a girl in Kalamazoo." Apparently not... that night! But I won her over with my charm, wit, and a great deal of wine. We married in September of 2001. She's my best friend.
Born: Troy, Michigan
Wife: Kelcey Carlson, anchor/reporter WRAL-TV
Pets: Dog- Phil Stubbs!
Kids: Two! Charlie, born in 2007, and Kellen, born in 2011
We found out who wrote the famous "you're too fat for TV" email to news anchor Jennifer Livingston. His name is Kenneth Krause, a personal injury lawyer from Wisconsin, and he doesn't feel the slightest bit guilty about what he told her. In fact, he released a statement yesterday in response where he actually invited her to meet up if she'd like some weight-loss advice.
“I hope she will finally take advantage of a rare and golden opportunity to influence the health and psychological wellbeing of Coulee Region children by transforming herself for all of her viewers to see over the next year.
“I would be absolutely pleased to offer Jennifer any advice or support she would be willing to accept."
What a jerk.
Wow, this one is a toughy...one that requires long, in-depth research. Who has the best burger in town? Thanks to Zagat, we can tell you who has the best burger from the big chains:
But if you want the best burger AND the best fries, you have to make two stops...

The man caught in the middle of the fighting between Mariah Cary and Nicki Manaj is downplaying the spat. He tells Extra, "I was the U.N. (United Nations). I love it, I gotta say. I love working with passionate people. I love artists. Everyone just sort of expressing themselves. It's a very alive and very invigorating work environment. A lot of passion."

Two drunks were in a bar partying like fools. They were drinking boiler makers, buying rounds like there was no tomorrow. They were dancing, calling each other "professor," and generally causing quite a stir. When asked why such a celebration, they boasted that they just finished a jigsaw puzzle & it only took them 2 months! "TWO MONTHS?!" cried the bartender. "That's ridiculous. It shouldn't take that long!!"
"Oh yeah?" says one drunk. "The box said 2-4 YEARS!"
Black shirt/black shoe. Perfect.
