MONDAY - FRIDAY | 3-7pm

 

As a kid growing up in Chicago I loved listening to the amazing, entertaining radio personalities on Chicago radio and knew it’s what I wanted to do. Even though my parents encouraged me to have a “back up” plan just in case this radio thing didn’t work out, I am fortunate to have worked in radio since I was 18-years-old. Radio has taken me from Chicago, to Indiana, Virginia, Michigan, California and back to Indiana! And along the way I’ve been blessed to have my wife Julie and two great kids Evan and Olivia.

When I’m not on the radio, I love spending time with my family. My wife Julie does speaking , my son Evan loves basketball and all sports (a love I share with him), and my daughter Olivia is an artist and crazy about animals – especially our dog Zack. We also love going to theme parks and riding roller coasters together! I have my Masters in Counseling and do so some work with a private practice,. I’m also in a billion fantasy football leagues (if someone asks, I can’t say no – so please don’t ask me to be in one … my wife will thank you).

It must be a subconscious reflex this time of year, but the other day I found myself beginning a sentence by saying, “‘Tis the season …” As I was saying that, it hit me that ‘Tis the season to say, “‘Tis the season.” I mean, I never found myself in July saying, “‘Tis the season...

This time of year is filled with parties and celebrations, but it isn't necessarily a "holly jolly" Christmas for everyone. The holiday season can be a very difficult time for many, who might feel lonely, anxious or depressed this time of year. Even if you are going to a bunch...

I got a voicemail today from a man in San Diego asking for tech support. He obviously had the wrong number, so don’t call me with your computer problems Later, I read the story of an elderly woman in need of a walker who mistakenly called the wrong number, but the people on the...

It's the thought that counts, right? That is pretty much what we think when a gift falls flat. For as much thought (or maybe not-so-much-thought) we put into gifts we always hope the person on the receiving ends like it, but reality says we don't always get it right. So how do...

I saw this study that says we are more likely to do a good deed for someone after someone else has been kind or done a good deed for us. Although, someone has to be the first, so why not you? When they asked people, they determined we average doing 5 good deeds a month – that’s...

It’s time for Our Acts of Christmas Kindness challenge. Every day we will have a new way of spreading Christmas cheer to do and make a difference this holiday season. There’s that saying that it’s "better to give than receive" and even though receiving is not too shabby, there...

We've made it through our countdown to Thanksgiving with our 21 Days of Gratitude - taking time each day to share thanks for someone or something! I hope this has been a helpful excercise for you - I know it has been for me. In fact, studies show that people who regularly have...
