I'm on-air overnights on WLIT. I've been broadcasting in Chicagoland for over 25 years... wow that's a long time. In addition to my on-air shift, I am also the Production Director, and do afternoon traffic reports. I have two sons, the oldest is a music education major at Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington(he plays sax and violin.) And the youngest is a sophmore in high school and plays sax and guitar.
I'm not a huge baseball fan (unless I can get good seats at the old ballpark) but I never miss watching a Bears game. If I'm going to be away, I'll record it and watch it later that day or night!
I feel priveliged to be one of two male DJs on the air staff and am happy to provide some testosterone to the Lite.
