Andy West

I am originally from Los Angeles but grew up in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. In between I spent 2 years of my childhood in Montana. One in Great Falls and the other in Havre. My mom married a Canadian when I was 9 and we moved to Canada. Because the winters in Edmonton are too damn cold I moved back to California once I was 21. My radio career has taken me to Casa Grande, AZ, Palm Springs, Fresno, CA, San Luis Obispo, CA and back to Edmonton which is a great city that thanks to global warming isn’t quite as cold as it used to be but colder than I can handle. So I took a position here with Cat Country 102.9 here in Billings where the winters are much milder. In my free time I play poker, basketball and flag football. My claim to fame is that my wife Monica is sisters with the former Miss El Salvador from 1996 who came in sixth in that years’ Miss Universe competition. Of course I think my wife is prettier than her sister! I also have a 12 year-old daughter named Noel who is in Junior High and was the 5th grade champion high jumper.

It’s Impossible To Lose Weight Working In An Office

Since January I've been working out regularly. I do an hour and 3 minutes of cardio in the morning and every 3 or 4 days I do pushups or push weights. For the better part of the first 6 months I started working out I was really good about watching what I ate but working here on the 23rd floor of the Crowne Plaza for Townsquare Media is a daily exercise (see how I did that) in avoiding sugary, rich, tasty, delectable, creamy, buttery, chocolaty, sweet snack foods

Same Day Registration Doesn’t Create Problems In Montana

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a blog called "Voter Fraud In Montana Is A Hoax" (good luck finding even one conviction of voter fraud in the Treasure State) I argued against LR-126 which would have ended same day voter registration (voters decisively defeated the measure by the way). On Facebook a couple of our listen
