I have misspent far too many years in the journalism trade, most of those years in my hometown of Houston, TX. I was in Berlin when the wall came down, the Middle East during the Gulf War, back to Germany for reunification, and Israel 3 times during the peace talks. I've interviewed every President from Ford to George W. Bush, and broadcast from the cockpit of a B-17, a MiG fighter and the deck of the QE2. I've been a News and Program Director and part owner in both radio and TV, and am thrilled to be the new Regional News Director for Townsquare Media in Wyoming. I look forward to no more Texas summers, and am braced for a Wyoming winter...probably not braced enough.
