I serve as 106.3 WORD News Director. I'm an upstate native and have been in radio since 1979 starting as a part time weekend announcer at Rock 101. I worked at several upstate radio stations in Anderson and Greenville through the years working Rock, Top 40, Country and News/Talk formats. I've worked as announcer, music director, program director, operations manager, general manager, account executive and news anchor. I've been married for 28 years and have 3 kids. I enjoy college football and basketball (Go Tigers!), NFL and motorsports. You can find me on "The Tara Show" as a Morning News Anchor.
