America's Radio News Network 4:00 PM - 8:00 PM
On Air Now.
In 1964, I took a part time announcing job on my hometown radio station WATK in Antigo, Wisconsin. I thought it would be a fun way to earn a little money while waiting for a "real job" to come along. It's hard to believe that I've spent all this time doing something that I really enjoy and I'm very thankful for the opportunities that radio has provided me over the years. I ended up in the Twin Ports and got married to my lovely wife in large part because of Vice President Hubert Humphrey. It's a long story but a phone call from the V-P to the Base Commander at Wright Patterson Air Force base in Ohio got the wheels turning to have me transferred here while I was in the service. After four years in the Air Force, I spent over 20 years at WAKX in Duluth including over ten years as part of the "RJ and Dave" morning show. Since 1992, I've been on the air and in the newsroom here at KDAL. It's always tough rolling out of bed so early in the morning, but I still get a rush out of informing and entertaining everyone out there in "radio-land". I've met and worked with some great people over the years and everyday is a new adventure as my search for a "real job" continues.
