CURRENT BROADCASTING POSITIONS
Sports Talk Show Host & Play-By-Play Announcer – Sports Radio WNML (Knoxville) – since 10/10
• 2017 WNML Personality of the Year as named by management. Because of my versatility and ability to do so many things for the station, I’m currently in a unique all-shows swing host role due to so many missed shows by hosts on the four local shows, with most airtime on the afternoon drive show. I hosted the “News Sentinel Sports Page” for 6+ years. Knoxville News Sentinel sportswriters joined me as daily rotating co-hosts. I planned and booked the show with high-level national and local guests producing proven ratings and sales success. I call the “Game of the Week” for our high school football coverage. I’m a panelist on the weekly “NFL Report” on WNML. I maintain a station website blog and handle web content/social media for WNML and our three-station cluster. I helped build the site from next-to-nothing to among the top performing sports stations in all of Cumulus for podcast/app/streaming/web traffic. I also assist with various digital platforms and billboard scheduling for the market.

I also do the post-game coach and player locker room interviews for baseball. I conduct the UT football and basketball pregame player interviews before every game. I also gather questions from the crowd on-air at our football network pre-game show “The Kickoff Call-In Show” to 65+ network radio affiliates.
