I was born and raised in Holley, NY (A small redneck village in Orleans County). I graduated from The College at Brockport with a degree in Broadcast Communications in May 2010.
As a kid growing up, there were two things I always wanted to do - play professional baseball and work in radio. After being able to do both my freshman year of college, I decided that RADIO was my #1 dream. I said goodbye to baseball and hello to the airwaves - Good decision? You betcha!
I got my first start in radio as a DJ and Sports Director at my college station WBSU 89.1 the Point. I was all about sports radio back then and produced a weekly sports show where I got to co-host, book guests, and make the show sound pretty.
In 2008, I interned with the one and only John DiTullio on our sister station 1280 WHTK.
In March of 2010, I became the voice you hear when you call 222-9500 on The Wease Show. Now for many of you, Brother Wease has been a part of your morning routine for more than 20 years. As a 22 year-old, I have spent the last 20 years trying to learn how to tie my shoes, learn to read, drive a car, and earn a college degree.
Now, though, I can say I have the best job in radio - Working for the Wease. Every day is an adventure in the studio, so get ready to laugh and if you wet your pants, we'll understand!
A Portland, Ore., police officer in pursuit of a speeding car, put the chase on hold to help a duck in distress.
In a dash-cam video released by the Portland Police Bureau, viewers are treated to what looks like the beginning of an exciting high-speed chase. A car zooms past a hiding police cruiser, and then Officer Mark James begins the pursuit.
But not long into the chase (the video above has been sped up), James sees a duck crossing the busy road. Rather than leave it to fend for itself, he pulls over and guides it to safety.
