I started out at KHAK as an intern back in 1996 and have been calling mornings home since 1999. A lot has changed since then, but I still love the job! There's always something new to talk about! And the KHAK listeners are awesome. They're loyal, and always willing to lend their opinion. My wife Holly and I make our home in Marion. We have three great kids that seem to grow every single day. Chase, Carly and Cayleigh keep us on our toes, but being a parent is the greatest adventure of all. I love working in country music, and at K-Hawk. The listeners have become like family members, and I look forward to spending many more years waking up eastern Iowa!
