I handle the weekday morning and midday news on 1150 WIMA.
I also take care of our news content on the web, Facebook, etc.
During the high school football season, I'm busy back at the station updating our text score updates, gathering final scores, and getting them on during Touchdown Ticker every Friday night from 10p-11p.
I also enjoy being the host of the weekly Buckeye Tailgate Parties during the football season.
Todd also throws me a bone once in a while as well, getting to do play-by-play for area games on our broadcast schedule.

Father's Day 2013 ended up being a special day for me.
Not only did I get to spend some quality time with my Dad, but we made a road trip out of it, and he got to go to a place he had not experienced before.
We went to Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, and saw the Reds defeat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1.
We had a great time. Whenever my Dad and I go to a sporting event, it always brings back memories of when we did it when I was a kid.
And, now that my sister has given us an almost 3 year-old nephew and grandchild, I can't wait until we can experience our first game with him.
I know a lot of friends, and even relatives, that have not had good relationships with their parents, or have lost them already.
I've been one of the fortunate ones, and maybe, just maybe, I can pass it along someday as well.
