I joined, then WOOO, in 1998. Working through the various identities of the station over the years, WKWH, and now, WSVX, 2014 is my 22nd year in the wonderful world of radio.
Having grown up in Illinois, I cannot stand IU or Purdue. I consider the rise of Butler basketball in my time here to be a blessing.

Operations Manager / GIANT fm Morning Show Host
I am a 2006 graduate of Tippecanoe Valley High School. I always wanted to get into radio as a kid, which I think is what led to me pretending I was a radio show host. I would record songs onto a tape and then play them back, pausing in between songs to jock. When I landed a job as a board operator at WROI, my childhood passion flashed before my eyes as a career. My dream and passion to be a radio host manifested itself, as I finally got my foot in the door. In 2017 I got offered a full-time position as the afternoon host and Program Director for WROI.
In August of 2019, when the radio station switched hands, I temporarily filled in for the morning DJ and was promoted to Operations Manager. When it was finally time for me to go back to hosting the afternoons, we wanted to set afternoons apart from what I did in the mornings by creating a “radio persona.” Based on my childhood nickname “Moose,” given to me by my dad, “Moose in the Afternoon” was born.
Aside from being behind the mic, I also have a strong love for All Elite Wrestling and my most important job that keeps me going, being a father of three.

Morning Show Host and Operations Manager of WREB
I graduated from Greencastle High School in 2001. I studied pre-law and psychology before changing directions to be a full-time mom. I have three rambunctious, creative, and outgoing boys. While staying at home with my children was very rewarding, I came to WREB part-time for a change of pace and to put my writing skills to work as a journalist. I fell in love with the radio. During the pandemic, I was the sole caretaker of the studio when the other employees were not able to leave quarantine. Later, I shifted into the one and only employee of the station. August of 2021, WREB was acquired by GiantFM and I have been able to continue nurturing both my passions for radio and writing.
