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.

There’s A Family Of Wild Turkeys Living Near Downtown Billings

I've lived in Billings now for nearly a year and a half and had no clue that there was a family of wild turkeys living near downtown Billings. Sunday night I was driving down 27th street from the airport 6 wild turkeys (Dad was the size of an Ostrich, his mate and 4 Turklets... Turklings... or whatever you'd call them) crossed the street slowing down traffic.

Loose Rocks Along Zimmerman Trail May Keep The Artery Closed For Quite Awhile

According to Billings Public Works 6000-7000 vehicles pass along the trail every day when open but at the moment only local residents whose homes are near the lower portion are allowed anywhere near the area.

Originally the plan was to reopen Zimmerman Trail on April 1st but more rocks slid of the rims onto the trail on Tuesday and an engineers assessment says that even the rock behind the portion that slid off is also unstable. At this point it's even too dangerous for city road crews to repair the damaged road and guard rail from Tuesday's rockslide.

It’s A Sad Day… I Won’t Be Winning A Million Dollars With My NCAA Bracket

It's been well publicized that the Oracle of Omaha, Warren Buffett, has put up a $1 Billion prize for a perfect Men's NCAA hoops tournament bracket through a partnership with Quicken Loans. So I've been watching ESPN like crazy to absorb as much information as I could about college basketball before I filled out my billion dollar bracket.

My Afternoon At The Jobs Jamboree

I just wanted to say thank you to the organizers of today's Jobs Jamboree at Metra Park. They asked me to do a presentation about careers in radio. Most people aren't brave enough to hand me a microphone and say "here, talk about radio" because, as my wife can tell you, they'll have to pry that mic from my cold, dead hands

St. Patricks Parade In Downtown Billings Was Fun But Scary

I had the great honor to drive the station van through the Downtown Billings St. Patricks Day parade. It was a blast! The crowd was huge and festive and people came decked out in green. I think my favorite costumes were the little leprechaun's who were wearing the fiery red strap-on beards
