I was born in Decatur, Alabama grew up in the small town of Coffeeville, Alabama. Not big into sports but love old Ford Mustangs and playing guitar. I try to be a good husband and dad. I started my radio career in 1996 in Butler, Alabama and moved around a few times before landing The morning gig at 95.3 The Bear here in Tuscaloosa. Madison and Shepherd have been on air for 3 years and I have had an opportunity to meet and work with some really cool people. I plan on hanging here till they run me off. (or until I win the lottery). Do you have the latest numbers?
