I was born and raised in Braddock Hills, just outside the city limits. I started covering the Steelers in 1994 when I began working at 1320 WJAS as Bruce Keidan's producer. Later that year, I moved across town and produced Steelers Football on Flagship News Talk 1250 WTAE. For 2 years I worked in Las Vegas, NV at SportsFan Radio Network, producing the Pete Rose Show. In 1997, I became the evening host of sports talk on 1250 WTAE at the age of 27, following in the footsteps of Myron Cope, Stan Savran and many others. Over my career, I have been fortunate to not just cover the Steelers, but the Pirates and Penguins, in addition to major college football, basketball and high school sports. I've worked for CBS Radio, ESPN, Hearst, Cox and others during my media career. I currently reside in Charleston, South Carolina with my wife and two daughters, managing a construction business.
