It’s an honor and a thrill to be the morning sports anchor on the station my parents always listened to on our countless trips to New York City from Rockland County. I started as a fill-in back in June 2010 and shifted to mornings (and 3:15am wake-up calls) in March 2011.
Yes, I was that kid growing up who announced games from his seat at sporting events. I thought I sounded like a pro, although I won’t speak for those fans in the surrounding seats. So, attending Syracuse University made perfect sense, especially since I grew up a die-hard Orange fan. After play-by-play stops at Colgate University, University of North Carolina, and University of South Carolina, I’m back where I started, and I couldn’t be happier. I have also spent time in the “anchor bullpen” at WFAN, Sirius, Bloomberg, and Dial Global for its coverage of the Olympics.
