This is the spot where I'm supposed to write something about myself. Here goes...
I'm originally from Northern West Virginia and started working in radio when I was in high school. I took a hiatus from the airwaves in the 90's to join the US Army Infantry. I was stationed in Hawaii (25th ID) and in Washington, D.c. (3rd Inf Reg-Old Guard).
When I got out of the Army, I did some work in TV, and then landed back on the air at Eagle 107.5. After spending 10 plus years there, I decided it was time to head south, and here I am...livin' the dream in South Florida on 98.7 The Gater!

Favorite Sport (to watch): Football
Favorite Football Team: Pittsburgh Steelers (you're most likely to find me at Rooney's in Jupiter on game day)
Rides A: 2008 Harley Davidson Street Glide
Surfs A: 8' HIC (nice cross between a longboard and shortboard)
Favorite TV Shows: 24, Walking Dead, Community, The Office, Touch, House, Hell's Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, American Greed, Hawaii Five-0 (the new version)
Favorite Music: Kid Rock, Skynyrd, AC/DC, Metallica, Aerosmith, Godsmack, Sublime, Bob Marley (just to name a few)
Craziest Thing I've Ever Done: It's a toss up between jumping out of a perfectly good airplane, surfing at Corners when Hurricane Irene passed by South Florida in 2011, or riding my motorcycle on I-95!

Ted Nugent has a new live 2 CD-DVD set that comes out on Tuesday, October 22nd! It's called 'Ultralive Ballisticrock," and it ROCKS! Ted called in today and we talked in depth about the project, the band, the music and more!
Ted also got his haircut...no more ponytail! He confirmed that the picture his wife posted on Instagram over the weekend is in fact real, and that her "hairgirl" is the one that cut it!
He said he did it on a whim for convenience and mobility while he's on stage and hunting, and that it had nothing to do with a possible run for The White House in 2016. Will he be a candidate when the time comes? He said "the threat of me running for public office is alive and well!"
What are Ted's thoughts on the Government Shutdown and how would HE fix it? Listen to the clip below to find out, and make sure you listen to whole thing so you can here his message for Harry Reid and President Obama!
We also talked about the Vets protesting in Washington this past weekend, his TV show 'Spirit of the Wild" on the Outdoor Channel, The Walking Dead, Duck Dynasty, and Operation Finally Home.
