Join Bill weekdays from 7p-Midnight!
About me: Born and raised back east in southeastern Pennsylvania (in and around Amish country). That explains why, to this day, I remain a huge Phillies fan, although I do follow the Royals. It also explains my fondness for cheesesteaks, soft pretzels, and Tastykakes. Seeing horse-pulled buggies on a daily basis is really neat…following one going two miles an hour (they have speedometers) when you’re late for work…not so much. Anyway, after high school worked a few different jobs, but nothing caught my fancy as a possible career. So, one day I picked up the phone book, found the number for US Army Recruiting, and then spent six plus years wearing camoflage for Uncle Sam…four of which were lived over in Germany (I could tell you some amazing stories…most of which involve the phrase “en grosse bier bitte”!). Anyway, when I got out of the Army (ETS’d to all you non-civies), I decided that I really liked it here in northeast Kansas, so I stayed. Started my radio career over in Junction City…and now, here I am in Manhattan…on-air here at B1047 since 1998 (wow that’s a lot of years!) What a cool job! Seriously, I get PAID to do this for a living! I also go to most of the K-State football games (I roadtrip as part of the crew for Powercat Gameday). Oh, and I’m the Traffic Director here at Manattan Broadcasting since last May…that means I’ll schedule the commercials, and unfortunately has nothing at all to do with a helicopter. When I’m not here at the station, I like to travel. I play a little golf…but not very well. I love my job…and I enjoy meeting you out at station events and remotes.
