Wake Up with WOOD all week long with West Michigan's Morning News!
Born in Detroit and began my career in 1966 in the mailroom at CKLW, a 50 thousand watt flamethrower that cranked out the top 40 hits of the day. After a number of stops around the country, I landed at WOOD in 1981 and started hosting the morning show in "89".
I did spend a couple of years in the U.P early in my career and that's where I met my wife Laurie. She's a Respiratory Therapist. We have 2 sons, Michael and Patrick along with 2 grandkid's, Alison and Kyle and a spoiled dog (rat and jack) named Calvin.
When not working we enjoy eating out with friends, good wine and travel to anyplace that's warm,especially in the winter
WOOD is one of America's great radio stations ...even though my day starts at 3am... it's still a blast after all these years to come to work.
If you're listening Monday through Friday to West Michigan's Morning News, you'll learn more about me that you ever wanted to know!
Thanks to LiveLeak.com, you can now hear the actual radio transmissions of sheriff's officers deciding to burn Chris Dorner out of the cabin.At 29:30 of the first file you here them decide to "go with the burn". While law enforcement officials scoured the hillsides above Big Bear Tuesday searching for Christopher Dorner, wardens from California’s Department of Fish and Wildlife were called in to patrol the rugged terrain of California 38.
It was on that highway that the officers first encountered Dorner fleeing in a stolen car, engaging the fugitive in a white-knuckle chase in which the ex-cop commandeered two different vehicles, authorities said. The pursuit culminated in what officials described as a wild shootout between Dorner and a state game warden. The actions by alert wildlife officers may have set in motion Dorner’s last stand -- in a snowbound cabin, surrounded by police. The cabin burned to the ground, and authorities believe Dorner was inside.
