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.
These days, I call Jersey City, NJ home, and the Garden State is my beat. This means I want to know what’s up with every issue, group and area around New Jersey.
I still can’t think of any mind-blowing, descriptive phrases to note how happy I am to be a News Reporter for WCBS 880 in New York. By the way, I love NYC. So maybe the best I can say is, “I feel right at home.”
