Hi there!!  I’m Brian and I was born and raised in Lewiston.  I live in Portland and have a full-time job for a local print company.  Since I am not satisfied with the bare minimum and having too much time on my hands, I am a full-time student enrolled in a Bachelor’s Degree Program in Accounting.

Now that we are through with the boring stuff, let’s get to how I ended up on the air.  In January 2000, I landed an overnight show on one of WPOR’s sister stations and began my radio career around 5 hours a week.  I dipped my hands into the other stations in the building, including WPOR, and absorbed as much as I could about radio broadcasting. Within a couple years, I had discovered that my gift of gab could pay off with a radio career.  During high school, I was always a fan of country music but didn’t let my friends know about it…I was not going to give them something else to tease me about.  I showed them though…in 2004, I got my first show on WPOR 101.9! Yes, I was a nervous wreck but it all worked out after that first Saturday show.  The powers-that-be were in dire straits and needed to keep somebody on the air…I was that lucky guy.

In a nutshell, that it’s it.  Thanks for listening to WPOR 101.9!
