What I do for 610: Assistant Program Director for SportsRadio 610, Talk 650 and Texans Radio Network. I also do Traffic Reports for 100.3 KILT, SportsRadio 610 and Texans Home Games. My job can be summed up in two words: coordinating and communicating. I program the Control Room software that provides the commercials and show elements that are heard on-air. I oversee the public affairs show that airs on the 5 CBS Radio Houston English-speaking stations as well as quarterly Ascertainments for all 6 CBS Radio Houston stations. I also schedule talent and producers each week, write sales promos, work with the traffic department to schedule the programs and games to air at the correct times, hire producers, pre-screen talent for hire, payroll and anything else that needs to be done to continue to make SportsRadio 610 the #1 rated sports station in Houston!
Hometown: I don’t really consider any of the towns I’ve lived in to be a “hometown” but out of all of them, I like Houston best so I’ll just say Houston.
College: University of Missouri/Broadcast Journalism and Mississippi State/Meteorology
How long at SportsRadio 610: 10 years.
What I love about Houston: Houstonians are the friendliest people I have ever met. When asked this question I always tell the story about when I first moved here I needed directions and asked someone in a Dillards parking lot. As they tried to explain it, they finally said—just follow us we’ll take you there. They literally drove to where I needed to be!

Favorite sports experiences:
- Sitting at Arrowhead Stadium in the upper level wearing a trash bag while the Chiefs played the Raiders while freezing rain came down the entire game. Whenever I moved, ice would break off and fall down my back. It was miserable.
- Being in the stands when Mark McGwire hit home run #68. I thought the park would collapse from the roar of the crowd on September 26, 1998.
- In a suite at Minute Maid park October 15, 2005 when Astros won Game 3 against the Cardinals in the National League Championship.
- Sitting at the 30 yard line during the infamous 5th Down Game when Colorado beat Mizzou October 6, 1990.
- Any game in which Toro hugs me!
