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
She knows you cheated...
Yes, it's true, a woman can tell you cheated just by looking at you. A recent study had a group of men and women look at photos of people, and rate their trustworthiness on a scale of 1 to 10. Some of these photos were of people that admit to cheating.
The results: Women were much better at spotting a cheater than men. Especially when in came to men. They spotted a male cheater in a second. All it took was a three second glance and she knew.
What about men? Men couldn't tell one way or another. Go ahead and cheat ladies, he'll never know. It's wrong, but he'll never know.
Good news, ladies!
There's a reason you live longer than your hubby! A new study found that married women have fewer heart attacks! A doctor studied more than 15,300 people who had heart attacks between 1993 and 2002 and discovered that both married men and women fared best. And it turns out a single woman's risk of heart attack was 65% higher than of her married counterpart --- and a staggering 175% higher chance of it resulting in DEATH.
Why? Experts aren't sure. They think it has something to do with having strong social support, better health habits and less depression.
Vday Spending Up
Is it the improving economy or just a desire to stay out of the doghouse that is making us spend more on our sweetie this Valentines Day? Valentines Day, believe it or not, is the second largest consumer spending holiday, second only to Christmas. Yikes!
This year the average guy will spend $168.74, and the average women will dish out $85.76.
The survey also found that 20% of us plan to give OUR PETS a gift.

A guy is passing a fraternity house on State's campus and hears chanting inside, Thirteen! Thirteen! Thirteen!
Curious to see what’s going on he finds a small hole in the wall, so he bends and peeks inside. Someone inside pokes him hard in the eye and everyone starts inside chanting, Fourteen! Fourteen! Fourteen!
