I was hired at 700WLW in 1978 and started out producing helicopter traffic reports when the station had the helicopter. I worked my way up and started helping out in the newsroom, covering stories, writing copy, etc. Then got into sports with the help of legends Andy Mac�Williams and Bob Trumpy. I then moved up to help out Sportstalk and been doing sports ever since. Trumpy actually gave�me my famous nickname�"SEG." Going to Northern Kentucky University started my career on the radio. Great people at NKU�especially Dick Murgatroyd, the former executive producer of the Bob Braun Show among others. Murg taught me right.

I have covered the Reds, Bengals, Bearcats, Muskateers, RedHawks, etc since the 1980's. I have been blessed to get to know some great sports stars over the years. Its been great to work with Trump, Cris Collinsworth, Boomer Esiason and Andy Furman on Sportstalk over the years.�I have been in the Reds Radio booth for 30 years learning from Marty Brenamann and the late Joe Nuxhall, along with Jeff Brantley and Thom�Brenamann.�Each game in the booth has been special.�

My love for auto racing started in 1978 following the late and great Dale Earnhardt, Sr plus my first trip to the Indy 500 that same year. I have also been blessed to meet some great people in the world of motorsports.

I went�to high�school at Colerain and graduated in 1976. From there, it was off to NKU and out�in 1980. I�live in Middletown with wife, Denise along with step daughter, Rachel. I am blessed to have three grandchildren from my other stepdaughter Sarah.�Our dog, Emma, passed away on Jan 4, 2007 after 14 years as the best dog and friend in the world.�
