Time flies when you’re having fun. My family has been enjoying Northeast Tennessee since 2004. I am the father of two beautiful children. Trey was born in 2003. Eva was born in 2006. My wife Julie takes care of all of us – not an easy job considering my wacky schedule. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing golf and working out.
I began my broadcasting career in my home state of Nebraska. I’ve spent most of my years as a Sports Anchor/Reporter but began as a Weekend News Anchor in 2009 and continue as the Morning Anchor here on News Channel 11.
After graduating from the University of Nebraska, I produced a local sports program. I worked as a Sports Anchor at KLKN and KHGI (NTV) in Nebraska, then at KJRH in Tulsa, followed by nearly 10 years as a Weekend Sports Anchor here at News Channel 11.
I’ve traveled the country covering some of the biggest events in sports. Some highlights include watching Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player in one of their final events together. The thrill of a Touchdown Friday Night never goes away.
I’m proud that WJHL News Channel 11 has given me the freedom and opportunity that led to Tennessee Associated Press Best TV Sportscaster Awards in 2011-2012. Sports Director Kenny Hawkins and I teamed up for three Tennessee Best Sports Program Awards for TDFN and The Virginia Associated Press Award for Year-Round Sports Coverage in 2004.
