I have been an “on air” personality for almost 30 years. It's hard to imagine doing anything else because it's still so much fun! Many mornings on the show I talk with my coworker "Big Chuck" at the watercooler about a wide variety of topics which is always fun and I share information with listeners about different community events or issues that are happening. I really enjoy this because it connects me even more to the community and I get to find out about all the great things our area in beautiful Central New York has to offer. In my spare time I love to kayak, garden, take nature walks, read, spend time with my family and play with my dog.
