BACK IN THE BOX! Returned last season as the host of "the Penalty Box", the post game call in show for Rochester Americans broadcasts on Sports 1280 WHTK, as well as studio host for game broadcasts and intermission updates. Looking forward to starting a second straight season this upcoming year.
Weekend morning newscaster on WHAM.
Sometime fill in host for Bob Matthews or John DiTullio, as well as hosting call-in shows during Yankees and Red Wings rain delays.
Graduated from West Irondequoit high school (in 1984) where I was the sports director at the student run radio station, WIRQ, as well as the "voice of the Indians" football and basketball radio broadcasts.
Graduated with a B.A. degree from Florida Southern College (in1988). Announced FSC basketball games on local cable TV. Also announced local high school football games on local cable TV.
Have worked for WBBF-AM, WPXY-AM, Sportsradio 990, and then moved on to Clear Channel in 1997, where I have worked for WHAM and WHTK since as a board operator, producer, newscaster, traffic reporter, weatherman and sports host, as well as all-around good guy.
I am also psyched to be back on the air hosting "the Penalty Box", the post game call in show for the Rochester Americans radio broadcasts on 107--3 FM and 1280 AM.
I recently also started reading newscasts on Newsradio 1180, WHAM. It is a good opportunity for me, although I never saw myself as a "news guy". I am still enjoying the opportunity.
I have to admit I don't feel like writing right now, but I know I need to. My pre-election political commentary blog is dated since the election is now over, so something else needs to be in this space.
Not only do I not feel like writing, but I don't feel like watching TV, reading about sports or doing just about anything else. God forbid, sex is even a serious question mark at this point. I don't feel like doing anything except sleeping. I just wish the nap could last for four years.
I am quite frightened for our country after this election. I was scared to death four years ago at this time and after seeing what happened during those four years--I had reason to be. I can only imagine the devastation this administration can do with another four. Now the people receiving handouts from the government outnumber those of us who work hard for a living. 2012 was the last chance to stem that tide. Sadly for this country, it didn't happen. This country is quickly becoming a country of two sides.....those who contribute to society and have to pay for those who do not, and those who do not contribute to society and rely on those who do.
That is exactly what the Democrats wanted of course. Now, with four more years of the chronically unemployed being added into "the system", and millions more illegal aliens presumably getting voting rights in the next four years, Obama, Nancy Pelosi and company will be an autocracy. Our country will never be the same, and it amazes me that so many people with a modicum of intellect do not see this coming.
Not to mention that China holds much of our debt, we are pulling out of most war zones around the world, and Obama is doing all he can to take away our nuclear capabilities while none of the rest of the world is, scares the bejesus out me personally. It might not be long before China takes over the US economically, and if that doesn't happen, the Muslims will through terrorist infiltration.
Oh well, we might as well just hit "pause" on the next four years. With a Republican controlled House and a Democrat controlled Senate, the right will continue to do everything they can to keep Obama and his policies in check. It is our last line of defense against socialism, and I pray that they continue to do so. So basically, nothing will get done the next two years at least, and hopefully the next four. All the Democrats who exalted in victory last night will be disappointed and blame Republicans and people like me will be praying that the House and Senate doesn't fall into Democratic hands two years from now. Once both do and Obama is still in power, it will be the absolute death knell for the American way of life.
This country is more split than it has been since the civil war, and things don't promise to get any better. At least with Clinton, you had a feeling Republicans could take the country back and get us on track again. I don't have that hope anymore.
You know the old joke...."you've heard about what Obama politics are like--you go into a fast food restaurant, order, and the guy in line behind you pays for it". I guess there are a lot of people in this country who don't mind being that 2nd guy in line.
I'd rather pay for my own thank you.
