Weekdays 10-3, Sundays 12-4

Where did you grow up?
I was born and raised in Northwest Indiana and have lived in DeMotte my whole life. Small town living is all I know, and I’m okay with that.

Where did you go to college?
St. Joseph’s College in Rensselaer, so… pretty close to home – but I lived on campus because I wanted the whole college atmosphere.

Why radio?
I chose to study mass communication with the original intention of being a sports writer or reporter, but after getting the opportunity to work at the college radio station, I fell in love with radio. I still love sports though, especially the Cubs!

As a disc jockey, who is your favorite artist?
I have a lot of artists that I really love, including Shania Twain, Luke Combs, and Carrie Underwood – but my favorite artist is Dan + Shay. I actually discovered them while I was the music director at St. Joe’s radio station, and even got to meet them once at one of their concerts on their first tour. Fun fact: Their opening act on that tour was Cam, who has since burst on to the scene herself.

As a traffic reporter, what Region road seems to jam up the most?
As a traffic reporter, I love it when I can say “smooth sailing” on the roads, but that doesn’t always happen, especially on 80/94 (the Borman), which we affectionately call the “Bore-Monster.” US 30 usually gets a little rough in the afternoon, too. I love that our traffic tipsters can call in and tell us exactly what’s going on out there, so we can pass along the info to everyone on the roads.
