Since the early 1990s, it’s been my privilege to be part of the KYSS FM broadcast family. Born and raised in Missoula, I think I have a sense of what country music means to the lifestyle of so many in western Montana. Even more importantly, I genuinely love communicating with the friendly, polite and respectful listening audience KYSS FM is so fortunate to have. When time allows, you’ll find me in my float tube tossing lures at fish in Harper’s Lake, Beavertail Pond or Frenchtown Pond. In addition to KYSS FM, my other broadcast duties include directing the statewide hunting and fishing program, the Montana Outdoor Radio Show, heard on over 25 radio stations throughout Montana. I am also the public address announcer for both the University of Montana Griz and Lady Griz basketball teams.
