First, yes…my parents named me after Elton John’s ’70s hit, so go ahead and sing a verse if you cross my path…I love it. I’m originally from 3rd Ward in Houston, Texas (and still a proud Houstonian…especially with sports), but prior to WCBS I lived for six years in the great city of Cleveland, where I was a Reporter for WTAM 1100. While there, the Associated Press gave me a few awards–including one for covering a story where I watched over 27-hundred people strip nude for a photo shoot. Yeah. That’s probably why I wear glasses…
Before Cleveland, I spent a year and a half at WENY in Elmira, New York and eight months making minimum wage at a country station in Columbia, Missouri. I now think “The Gambler” is one of the greatest songs ever. My career actually got started at the University of Missouri-Columbia, where I graduated in 1996 with degrees in Broadcast Journalism and History. I learned a heck of a lot. The book lessons came in handy, too.
