Scott Shepherd 1

Scott Shepherd

I was born in Decatur, Alabama grew up in the small town of Coffeeville, Alabama. I really enjoy Alabama football and 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?
