January 30, 1954
First media job:
Taking out the garbage and cleaning the floor at KFKF Radio in Bellevue, Washington at the age of 12
Working on my first NBA game on February 2, 1998 between Toronto and Boston.
Writing poetry, reading, music, and watching any team from the University of Michigan play.
I am really excited about being a part of the Sportsnet team. Anyone who has seen me talk basketball can tell you that I would literally jump at the opportunity to speak my mind on the game. I enjoy bringing that enthusiasm, accompanied with my knowledge of the game, to Sportsnet viewers.
My time in Toronto has definitely been a high time in my career. I have fulfilled my ambition of calling the action in the NBA by doing the radio play-by-play for the Toronto Raptors.
Before moving to Toronto, I was the Sports Director at WJR Radio in Detroit. I anchored a pre- and post-game show for both the Detroit Red Wings and the University of Michigan Wolverines football team. But all that work still couldn't keep me from calling basketball for the Wolverines as well.
My time at Michigan followed a 10-year stint at DePaul University, where I did the basketball play-by-play. By the way, I also dabbled for some other teams in different sports – the Bears, Cubs, Bulls, and Stings. A lot of work for one man to handle, you may ask? It might have been if I didn't truly love my job."
