January 18th (Capricorn)
Married? Yes! 15 Awesome years to Rochele
Children: 2 Daughters: Krystal and Klea
Broadcast History: I’ve been in radio for 21 years. I started out in Dayton, Ohio. Had the chance to work at the Legendary WEBN in Cincinnati and was more than willing to move to Tampa 11 years ago to play radio.
Community Involvement: I’m heavily involved in both my daughter’s schools. I’m a member of the school’s “Dad’s Club” and I have volunteered for their Read Aloud Program of which my wife is the chair person, I also particiapte in the "Great American Teach In' every year...
All Childrens Hospital is near and dear to my heart. Having been a fund raiser and a Dad of a patient, I can not say enough about the very special people that work there and help all of our kids.
Interests outside of radio: Other than my family, cars are my passion! I love all things automotive, especially old street rods and muscle cars. I’m currently in the process of restoring my Z28 Camaro. I’ve had it since I was a senior in high school and was fortunate enough to hold on to it all these years. You can usually find me at the local Cruise Ins and Car Shows and I’m always at the big events at Bradenton Motorsports Park. I really like the “Street Legal” drags. Anything else you want to know, just ask!

Man...wish I had this kind of money. Jeff Vinik....you might know his name...he OWNS the Tampa Bay Lightning. Well...a few months ago, he bought a $4.2 million in Sarasota...then he tore it down! By the way...did I mention it was 6100 square feet???
In a statement, Vinik spokesperson Bill Wickett released the following statement:
"Although Mr. Vinik typically does not comment on personal or family matters, his recent acquisition in Sarasota has no bearing on his commitment to the Tampa Bay community or his business interests here."
Hmmmmm....wonder what he's going to do with it now? It was a nice place...check out the video!
