My radio broadcasting journey didn't start until I was a Junior at Findlay High School back in 2011. I started working at 88.3 WLFC which is the student radio station for the University of Findlay. During the rest of my high school years, I helped create highlight clips for sporting events and did sideline reporting for football. I graduated from high school in 2013 and went to the University of Findlay. While I was in college, I was able to work for 1330 WFIN helping with the high school football scoreboard show, commercial editing, and producing. I eventually did play-by-play for their taped delay games covering the Blanchard Valley Conference for football and basketball. I also had the opportunity to do two internships with the Cleveland Browns in 2015 working in Special Events and Corporate Partnerships.
Once I graduated from college, I did an internship with the Spartan Sports Network in East Lansing, MI covering Michigan State athletics. I helped with their morning show, interviewed coaches and players, created highlight clips for basketball and football, produced multiple sporting events, and created feature stories. I received a Michigan Association Broadcast Excellence Award for a feature I did on George Alderton.
My next pit stop was 95.7 FM and 1290 AM WHIO in Dayton, OH. I worked there for two years doing a wide variety of jobs for the station which included anchoring, producing network programming and University of Dayton basketball and football games, and created content during critical situations that effected the Dayton area.
After working in Dayton, I headed back to Findlay to work at 106.3 The Fox calling Ottawa-Glandorf High School football and basketball. During that season, the football team made it all the way to the Division V State Semifinals and the basketball team made it all the way to the Division III State Championship game.
Now, I'm happily working for 96.7 WBVI and ESPN 105.7 FM and 1430 AM hosting the Friday Night Psych Up Show and Scoreboard Show for high school football. I produce football and basketball games for both stations and am the Office Coordinator for the station.
