I didn’t set out to host a talk radio show. It all got started as an all request jock on what today would be called “Adult Contemporary”. Then someone told me I should be doing news. Under three years later I was the right-hand man at a station rated as among the five best news-talk products in the country. When I left for TV I spent 22 months as an anchor/reporter and then moved on to work as News Director at two ABC affiliates and one NBC affiliate. The work was drudgery. After six years I was back in radio and began full time work as a talk show host. I’d wetted my chops filling in weekend mornings ten years earlier. This is fun. Everyday. Off-air I can’t even get family to listen. On-air I’m suddenly an expert in politics, culture and relationships. All because someone gave me a microphone. I’ve been revitalized since coming to Idaho. When I was a little boy my parents gave me a puzzle with all 50 states and I even know capitals. I didn’t need directions to get here. In my spare time I point the car randomly and then drive off and take pictures of what I see. The Mountain West is a visual smorgasbord. At home I’m doing three main things and reading is one of my pastimes. I’m always cramped because I own well over one-thousand books (and I’ve given hundreds away). For relaxation I like Washington Nationals baseball, any and all football and hockey. If it involves an elbow in the face I’m happy. It’s like talk radio! Somewhere I’ve got stacks of hardware from the New York State Associated Press. In a closet, I guess. The ceremonies were fun but I never put the awards on a wall (friends have homes that look like shrines). When I was young I was more interested in the Tanqueray served at the banquets and making connections with broadcast colleagues. Today, I’ve no interest in the social network. Years of working in broadcasting and political consulting have left me with the impression none of us are curing cancer. Check the egos at the door and let’s get down to business!
