Howdy ya’ll, At age 11 we moved to Lubbock, Texas next door to Bill McAlister, owner of KSEL AM-FM. I told him I wanted to be in radio. He said, “When you’re 13 years old, I’ll give you a job.” I mowed his lawn for 2 years so he wouldn’t forget about me, and on my 13th birthday, I marched into his office and began my career. At 19, I became his Program Director and my course was set. After that, different cities and radio stations, broadcast syndication, public relations, and podcasting. Now, being a part of “Boss Country Radio” feels so right.

Hey y’all! I was born and raised in the Midwest where the love of God, family, my dog, and cheese runs through my veins. I fell in love with country music and concerts as a young child and decided to chase the dream of Country Radio. I got my start as an intern for the morning show at WMIL FM106.1 and later on air at WKTI 94.5. When I’m not doing event promotions, I’m on air pursuing my passion here on Boss Country Radio and most likely with an iced coffee in hand...my fav! Follow my radio journey on Facebook.
