The reason I got into radio was to make a difference. I'm personally involved with many local organizations, as well as the hundreds we work with through the station. Here are just a few of the groups I spend more time helping:
University of Iowa Children's Hospital, CMN, and Dance Marathon
The ARC of East Central Iowa
Knights of Columbus
Marion Youth Baseball
I enjoy coaching baseball, playing tennis, kickboxing, listening to music, playing board games with my kids, riding rollercoasters and taking long walks on the beach.
My favorite teams that I follow:
· Minnesota Vikings Football
· Nebraska Cornhuskers Football
· Univ of North Dakota Fighting Sioux Hockey
· Linn Mar Lions
· Iowa Hawkeyes
· Minnesota Twins & Cincinnati Reds Baseball
Fall is officially here with the kickoff of Oktoberfest in the Amana Colonies today. I'll be broadcasting from 1-3pm and involved in the ceremonial tapping of the keg. I might get the first pint;-). The festival runs all weekend long with fun and festivities for everyone, including the kids. The weather forecast may put a damper on the outdoor events, but the rain has never stopped the beer from flowing. We might have to have an impromptu Wet Bar Maiden contest. Check the Fox facebook out later today for some interesting photos. We'll see you in Amana.
