I am thrilled to join the WHIO News team as a morning news anchor. Being part of a well respected and established news operation like News Center 7 in a great area like the Miami Valley, was a huge draw for myself and family. I have been fortunate to spend the last 25 years in the television news industry beginning my career in Northern Maine with stops in Georgia, Louisiana, Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania as well. I spent the better part of my first 15 years working in sports and had the fortune of covering three Super Bowls, an NBA Championship and a handful of PGA Tournaments. Most recently in news, I had stints in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Cleveland. While working at WEWS in Cleveland, a few of the bigger stories I covered included a deadly plane crash in an Akron neighborhood, the 2016 Republican National Convention and the Cleveland Cavaliers run to the 2016 NBA Title. I am the son of an Air Force veteran and grew up living in California, South Carolina and even Germany. I certainly appreciate all those who commit to serving our country and am looking forward to living in an area where service members are a big part of the community. In my spare time, I love exploring new spots with my family and trying different restaurants. I’m also very excited to get back on the links. There are few spots that can compare to all the great golf courses Ohio has to offer.
