What I do for 610: Co-host mid-day show with Seth Payne. Previously hosted 10-11am hour and worked as the update anchor for Vandermeer and Lopez. I initially came here as the afternoon update anchor.

Age, birthday: March 14

Hometown: Ridgefield, CT

College: Syracuse University

How long at SportsRadio 610: Since July, 2010

How long in radio business:  Professionally since Ma,y 2008

Coolest person at SR610: John Lopez

What I love about Houston:  Weather, lack of commuting (for me, anyway), very easy place to live overall

Favorite four-letter word: FAIR

Favorite players to interview: Andre Johnson, Shane Battier, Chris Myers

Teams followed: New York Jets, Syracuse University football/basketball, Michigan football/men’s basketball, USA National soccer team

Signature phrases or lines: Fair, solid, what a mess, I’m a debacle, what a disgrace, bad job

My favorite sports experiences:

  • Having the opportunity to be on Radio Row last year at the Super Bowl
  • Attending the 2005 Ohio State-Michigan game in Ann Arbor
  • Attending Game 6 of the 2000 ALCS at Yankee Stadium
  • Seeing the Big 3 of Miami last year at Toyota Center
  • Attending a couple of different Big East Tournaments at Madison Square Garden (2008, 2009, 2010)
  • Calling one of the biggest upsets (by point spread) in the history of CFB (Syracuse at Louisville 2007)
  • Doing a post-game call-in show in Madison Square Garden

Sports played, where, when, etc.: I swam for a couple of years on my high school team. There’s nothing like the feeling of being up on the blocks, ready for that horn to sound.

My family: Immediate family is my parents and sister, who attends a small liberal arts college in upstate New York (we clearly pick our colleges based on cold weather, haha)

More: I’ve had the chance to cover a couple of different sports markets. At Syracuse, you have a mix of NY-Boston-Philly, with a heavy focus on college sports, especially hoops. Doing radio work in Hartford, it was pretty concentrated on the NFL and college basketball. Being in Houston for 1.5 years, I’d say this is a very pro-sports, NFL-focused type of city.

Before CBS Radio, I had the chance to get experience working on the air at both ESPN Radio and Sirius-XM. It was a great chance to be on the campus at Bristol and to see how things get done on a national radio level. At XM, I enjoyed contributing to the NFL Radio channel. From a programming standpoint, it’s fascinating to me how you do a year-round sports talk format that’s exclusively focused on just one sport.
