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.
Cereal, It’s What’s For Breakfast. What’s Montana’s Favorite?
About once or twice a year, I treat myself to a box of cereal. The reason that I only do it once or twice a year is that I have zero self-control and it takes me about a day and a half to eat an entire box.
Bozeman And Montana Remind Us All There’s a Lot of Love Out There
The world is not broken, hope is not gone, people are not bad. We just have to go out and find the things that unite us. It's not hard to do, we just have to be willing to do it. So thank you Bozeman. Thank you for reminding me of something that I know to be true, I just needed a little reminder.
As Families Gives Thanks, Gallatin Valley Mall Closed For Holiday
The Mall, which has been closed on Thanksgiving for the last few years, will continue that tradition this year as well. The reason? The Gallatin Valley Mall wants families to be able to get together and enjoy the Holiday.
Closed For Thanksgiving? What Do You Say Montana, Yes or No?
Do you think businesses should close for Thanksgiving here in Bozeman and across Montana? As always, I decided to ask the people, so I posted the question on Social Media. To be honest, the results weren't even close.
Montana Veterans, We Salute You on this Veterans Day
Millions of men and women were and are willing to give everything to serve the country they love. I think about that often, to be 18 or 19 and decide that you want to do something bigger than yourself. That takes an incredibly special person, one who is selfless, brave, and heroic.

Should ESPN Gameday Come to Montana? Yes, But Not For The Griz.
I would absolutely love to see the Gameday crew in Missoula for the Brawl of the Wild, but not because "Missoula deserves it", because Montana State is having an amazing season and this could be the icing on the cake as far as the regular season goes.

“Can The Griz” is Back and Bozeman Looks to Take Back the Title
This annual event, which raises hundreds of thousands of pounds of food for Montanans, is something that every Bobcat and Bozemanite can get behind. Not only does it result in food for those in need in our area, but it's the perfect way to kick off the Holiday Season AND stick it to the Griz.
Most Passionate Montana Fanbase? MSU or UM? The Answer is…
I have a unique perspective in all of this, because I've lived in both cities. I've been to both stadiums and I've mingled and tailgated with both fan bases. I can tell you who is more passionate and to be honest, it's not even close.
