Began my broadcasting career in Dover on 97.5 …40 years ago (when it was WDNH)…and have been hooked on radio and country music ever since. I’ve worked as an announcer and program manager for several radio stations in New England, but spent my most productive years right here at WOKQ working with some of the best talent in the business. After retiring from a non-broadcast career(28 years with U.S. Postal Service) I was fortunate enough to come full circle and return to the Big 97-5 WOKQ….where I enjoy interacting with the best audience in radio, as well as on our Facebook page and WOKQ.com. I promise that I will always bring a quality presentation to the airwaves on WOKQ/WPKQ.
