I took over as General Manager at 91.1 FM in July of 2015. Previously, I served as News and Public Affairs Director at WMSV. I'm a graduate of Mississippi State University and a lifelong Mississippian. My goal is to make sure our station is highly effective every day in providing MSU, Starkville and the Golden Triangle with the best mix of music, news and info on local events.
On the weekends, you can catch me at Davis Wade Stadium doing the public address announcing for Mississippi State football or on the SEC Network+ broadcasting MSU softball and soccer. When I'm not working, I enjoy worshipping and serving at Grace Presbyterian Church in Starkville and hanging out with my wife Tracy and dog Beasley.
