It sure is good to be back in Montana! It took me longer than I would’ve liked, but it’s better late than never, right? Montana actually runs in my family. I have ancestors that settled here years ago and I lived in Missoula for a couple years about a decade or so ago (don’t worry, I’m not a Griz fan). My sister-in-law used to manage a hotel at Yellowstone, and when my wife (Jules) visited her, she fell in love with Montana as well. So, when given the chance to come to Bozeman, we couldn’t pass that up. I love the spirit here. I love the beauty and the fact it really is the last best place. There is no other place like it and the fact that we get to call it home, that’s beyond special. We can’t wait to experience all that Bozeman offers, so if you see us out and about, come introduce yourself! Where are you from? Born and raised in Sedalia, Missouri. Home of the Missouri State Fair! What would you be doing if you weren’t doing radio? I would probably be a carny running the ring toss. Have you ever been arrested? No, but I almost got my mom arrested when I was a kid. I was making prank calls and the police thought it was her. They even took out the cuffs, she was NOT happy! What is something most people don’t know about you? I cry every time I watch Forrest Gump with the scene at JenNAY’s grave. Do you have a best friend? I do! My best friend is my wife, Jules. We were friends before we started dating and it just evolved from there. I’m beyond blessed. Food Network or HGTV? Wow. That is tough, both. Who is your favorite singer? That is such a tough question. I’ve been lucky to see so many concerts. I’m going to go with either Freddie Mercury or John Denver. I have eclectic taste. Best advice you’ve ever received? There was once a man that was wise beyond his years. A master, if you will. He once said “Do, or do not. There is no try.” What song do you want played at your funeral? American Pie and if everyone isn’t up dancing by the 3rd verse, I will come back and haunt them all.

Should ESPN Gameday Come to Montana? Yes, But Not For The Griz.
