I was born in Gulfport, Miss., and am the oldest male of a family with five kids. I am a military brat and no stranger to moving. My dad is from Louisiana and I learned the Louisiana lifestyle at an early age. I have been married to Sandy for over 25 years and have one son and one daughter. I moved to Lake Charles in 1984 and spent five years at Bayou 104, then 11 years at LA 99 and two years at KQ-98. I also worked for Clear Channel in Beaumont, KQIS in Lafayette and Citadel Broadcasting in Baton Rouge. Most of my career has been spent along the Gulf Coast. I have worked on the air through seven hurricanes and an ice storm. I was very humbled when awarded the Allstate Insurance Good Hands Award for my efforts with the Clear Channel Beaumont team while covering Hurricane Rita. Only seven non-insurance agents have ever received that award. I love to fish (and have my secret spots in the lake and river system) and I'm a big baseball and football fan. I coached Little League Baseball for 10 years, and kids’ basketball for two years, producing a 22-0 championship team! I'm very glad to be back in Lake Charles, working with long-time friends.
Broadcasting Through Hurricane Rita Ten Years Ago
It is an experience I will never forget. We were told by corporate to abandon the studios and get out of harms way. We ignored that advise and broadcast through the approximate 12 hours of 120 mile per hour winds of Hurricane Rita.
