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.

It's hard to belive its the middle of July in 2013 already.
Baseball is at its All-Star break, my favorite NBA team just traded away all of its veteran leaders, my favorite NHL team just lost in the Stanley Cup Finals, and football still seems like a long ways away.
And, its hot outside.
While I do enjoy the comforts of air conditioning, I was mowing my lawn last night, and I ran out of gas about half way through completing the job.
I was okay with that. I was a sweaty mess anyway, and it was time for dinner.
Oh well. Just venting about some of my summertime blues. Things could be a whole lot worse.
Looking forward to a few summertime concerts in a few weeks. I'll have reviews of those shows here at my blog.
