Born and raised in Lafayette, thanks to the U. S. Army Signal Corp spent time in New Jersey, Germany and France. From childhood I've always wanted to be on the radio. Thanks to the military and other broadcasting jobs I have been able to listen to incredible radio stations and learn much. No matter where I was Lafayette was always home...and always will be. Returning to Lafayette and doing 'Go Acadiana' with Dr. John Sutherlin on NewsTalk 96.5 KPEL is a dream come true.
