I graduated from Annawan High School in 2000. I work in radio in Macomb, Illinois where I have been employed with Prairie Radio Communications (K100, 104.7 WLMD, AM1510 WLRB) for 2 1/2 years. My career in the radio biz began in 2001 at WGEN-AM in Geneseo, IL and the former WHHK “The Hawk” in Galva. I currently serve as Sports Director for the 3 radio stations in Macomb as well as WKXQ in Rushville, IL. In addition, I am co-host of the K100 morning show.  2005 was a big year for my career as my station won small market radio station of the year (K100), as well as winning best local morning show, and firsts for a community event in which I “Freeze For Food”, and a broadcast of the local National Guard troops leaving town for Iraq. I also serve as a sports correspondent for local newspapers in Macomb. I began work with the Glory Days website after meeting Dave on the PJStar Message Boards and brainstormed ideas in getting something started. I am more of the “legman” with my poor computer skills (haha!). I really enjoy spending time on the highways of Illinois tripping onto small towns and getting that great shot of a dilapidated high school (which is truly saddening in some cases). I am truly looking forward to learning more about the history of these and future schools added to this site!
