Monk 2

Monk

I have been in radio since I was 17 while still in high school. I hope to never lose my job because I’m afraid I don’t know how to do anything else.

I was born in Maryland, raised in Mississippi and have decided Alabama is the place I want to be. I moved over 10 years ago to work here at the station and just never left. I have proven that if you do anything that is asked of you, eventually they’ll want you to hang around for good.

I am a family man. Weekends find me watching Crimson Tide and Washington Redskins football, doing yard work, etc.

Schedule

M-Sa 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm
