I can't remember which interested me first; sports, music or broadcasting. Fortunately, I haven't really had to choose among the three.
From playing disc jockey on a radio station my sister and I imagined was in Honolulu but was actually in small-town Alabama, to my current job as Sports Director at WBIR-TV, I have been blessed to do something I love my entire life.
I started an actual job as a disc jockey while in high school, transitioning to radio news in college and then to TV sports in Birmingham, Alabama, and Nashville, where I covered my first Tennessee football game in the Liberty Bowl in 1986.
For three years, I went back to music, hosting a country music show through Jim Owens Associates for TNN.
In 2003, I moved to Knoxville to continue covering the Vols for WBIR.
I am a member of Sevier Heights Baptist Church where I love--you guessed it--music. I sing in the choir as much as my schedule allows.
I'm an avid if average golfer and I love photography, music (of course) and reading.
They say if you do something you love, you'll never work a day in your life. I can vouch for that.
