Smitty

Since I am a fairly mediocre human, I will do my best to make this Bio as exciting as possible. Here goes...

Born in northern MI (Rapid City-Kalkaska schools), re-located downstate (Walled Lake) during high school years. Decided to join the US Army as a paratrooper at 20. I tend to not make a big deal about my service. I was out before 9-11, didn't see combat, and really just spent 3 years drinking beer and jumping out of planes...EXCITING!

After the Army, re-located back to northern MI, did mostly bartending jobs, drove a taxi cab, fertilized lawns, then at age 30, had a mini-nervous breakdown and decided I wanted to finally put the GI Bill to use.

I studied at Specs Howard School of Broadcast Arts in Southfield (RTV-1-06 class represent!) I joined Black Diamond Broadcasting (Formerly Northern Star Broadcasting) Super Bowl weekend 2007.

I held the afternoon slot on our sister-station ROCK 105.1 / 95.5 for eleven years, and loved every single minute of it, building a solid relationship with listeners, using genuine humor, love of the music I play, and love of the region. I also held a midday slot on Classic Rock the Bear in the past.

I like to throw out random self-deprecating humor and say things like...'I have no idea why people like listening to me" ...but I think the reason people like listening to me, is that I'm genuine...not doing any kind of character. I think people like that. See? Exciting!
