I'm the News Director at WIBX and have worked in radio in Utica since 1982 when I got my start at WRUN. I graduated from Herkimer County Community College with a degree in Radio-TV Broadcasting and I'm currently a member of the HCCC Radio-TV Advisory Committee. I love music, collecting sports memorabilia, golfing, biking and yes I'll admit it, professional wrestling. I am also an avid sports fan as well rooting for the Buffalo Bills, Buffalo Sabres, Houston Astros, and Colgate University. A favorite charitable cause is The Rescue Mission of Utica, where I volunteer every Thanksgiving, and participating in the Sitrin STARS Program. In addition to my daily newscasts, you can catch me co-hostng the CNY Travel Show every Sunday morning.
