I moved to Montana in 1979 from Cincinnati, Ohio. I started doing play-by-play in 1982 in Billings. I began working at my current job in December 1985 and have never left. I have been on Cat Country mornings since the show started in March 1988. In addition to my on-air job, I own and operate a wheat and cattle ranch north of Billings. I am most proud of my four children.
