I'm in my 39th year of broadcasting on radio and television. Prior to joining 92.9 The Ticket in November 2012, I spent 16 years at WLBZ-TV (NBC Affiliate) in Bangor, Maine. My television experience included three years as a news reporter/anchor and 13 years as sports director/anchor. In 1993, I moved to WZON (AM620) in Bangor as sports/program director and created Maine’s first all-sports radio station. WZON was twice named Maine Associated Press Station of The Year.
