An avid fan of the New York Mets and New York Giants, I love to play golf (I stink at it tho), but I care much less about my hobbies since becoming a father in 2015. See a smile on my face? I'm probably thinking about spending time with my son. My radio career began as a board operator. An ability to provide an objective voice has led to many opportunities with Utica's first radio station. I've worked as a news reporter, news director and now Brand Manager of WIBX 950 Utica, Rome. Catch me each weekday morning on WIBX First News with Keeler in the Morning, or find me on YouTube breaking down the evolution of America's 'big four sports'. I should mention I also watch the Knicks - I'd say I'm a fan, but they don't usually give you anything to root for!
