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
And just like that -- you're not fat!
Good news, the official Body Mass Index may be adjusted giving tall people a break on what is defined as "overweight." Oxford University says the current BMI is flawed showing tall people too fat and short people too thin. For example, someone who is 6'2 would be considered overweight at 195 pounds. The revised BMI for someone 6'2 is 224 pounds. A 5'10 inch person would be considered overweight under the old standards at 185 pounds. Now it's 192 pounds.
But the smaller you get, the more weight you have to lose, according to the revised method of calculating BMI. For example, someone who is 5'4 used to be overweight at 146 pounds... now it's 143. Dangit! source

A man is recovering from surgery when the Surgical Nurse appears and asks him how he is feeling.
"I'm O. K. but I didn't like the four letter-words the doctor used in surgery," he answered.
"What did he say," asked the nurse.
That joke goes perfectly with this story: Surgeons Leave 16 Items in Man's Body After Routine Operation
