Hello and thank you for checking out our website! Unlike Russ, I have less â€œon airâ€ hours than any other staff here at WIGM/WKEB and thatâ€™s alright with me.
I grew up on Hideaway Resort in Chippewa Falls on Lake Wissota, yes the Chi-Hi Cardinals but a die-hard Raiders fan today. In the summers of 1982 and 1983, I traveled with the Kids from Wisconsin troupe as a singer/dancer. I received my Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Northwestern â€“ St. Paul, MN. Iâ€™ve spent the majority of my career working for Cray Research, Inc., Lawson Software, and Star Exhibits & Environments in accounting, and sales & marketing departments. My family, Sheldon, Sam, Katie, and I moved to Medford in 2003. As a family, we enjoy our time at our cabin taking in all activities the outdoors has to offer â€“ tubing, skiing, sand volleyball, four-wheeling, cross country skiing, and snowmobiling. When not at the cabin, you can find us sitting on a bench cheering on our kids at one of their sports activities. John â€“ take care of my daughter during basketball season. I also enjoy a good book, a great movie and exercise and run because I believe taking care of myself will help me be around physically and mentally when it comes time to enjoy grandchildren (but not anytime soon). Secretly, Iâ€™d like to give acting a try in our Medford Area Community Theatre, but donâ€™t tell Pat. Iâ€™m not sure my old brain could remember the lines! Iâ€™m elated to be a part of this family here at WIGM/WKEB and look to many fun and exciting years to come.
