    “Radio has always been a dream of mine since I can remember. In fact, I remember sitting in the sandbox when I was five years old telling my best friend that I was going to be on the radio when I grew up.  In high school I got my first taste of broadcasting by taking a TV production class in which we produced and edited our morning announcements (which was broadcast via closed-circuit TV throughout the school each morning.) After high school I went to college at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City, Florida and took classes for radio production.  Unlike a lot of other colleges, we were fortunate enough to have our own campus radio station and part of our grade was to produce a weekly show on the campus radio station. It wasn’t long after that I landed my first job at a commercial Top 40 radio station in the mid 90’s. Since then, I have worked at stations in Panama City, Florida and Lynchburg, Virginia before moving to Pensacola in 1996 to attend college at Pensacola Junior College.
    I have worked on-air at several radio stations in Pensacola since 1996 but spent most of my time at 102.7 WXBM where I was nicknamed “The Original Night Owl” because of my overnight show. In 2013 (after Cumulus bought WXBM and sister station WMEZ Soft Rock 94.1), I moved over to 1370 WCOA first starting out as the afternoon news / traffic host and then I became the main traffic and news reporter for all five Cumulus radio stations in Pensacola. In 2018 I joined “Good Morning Pensacola” on 1370 WCOA alongside Don Parker. 

    In addition to my duties on 1370 WCOA, I also own a mobile DJ business, SN DJ Entertainment, which I have owned and operated since 2003. I host / DJ events such as weddings, parties, school dances, and fundraising events. If you would like to learn more about SN DJ Entertainment please feel free to visit www.sndjpensacola.com.
