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.

at the 2013 Northwest Ohio Rib Off, August 10, 2013, Lucas Co Fairgrounds, Toledo, OH
This is my favorite AMERICAN rock and roll band of all time, and they're touring once again, celebrating their 40th anniversary.
On the heels of a show next week in Pittsburgh, where all original members were going to reunite and play, there was news that the original violin player and co-singer, Robby Steinhardt, suffered a major heart attack, and will have to have a quadruple bypass.
A few years ago, the original driving force behind the band, Kerry Livgren, suffered a major stroke, but he has recovered extremely well, even though he doesn't regularly go out on tour.
The current lineup, which has 3 original members, can still rock it out, but those classics that came out in the late 70's and early 80's just don't sound like the original recordings anymore.
Still, I admire these guys. They're professional musicians, and as long as their health is good, and they all still want to perform, they're worth checking out.
As for the Rib Off, there were plenty of booths to sample, but you needed to bring the bank, because it wasn't cheap. A small sample of ribs was 7-bucks. A cost for admission, a cost to park, and not to mention drink tickets, and it all starts to add up.
A good crowd turned out, and the weather for mid-August was perfect.
And, yes, the ribs were mighty tasty!
