I grew up just a short walk from the beach in Belmar, NJ—and I’ve had a radio in my hand since the day before my 8th birthday. I tried to live in another state (Florida) a number of years ago, but I missed the changing leaves in the fall and yes, even the snow in the winter. So I quickly came back. I believe that radio will always be with us because it has the ability to be up close and personal, live, local and immediate. Radio is always adapting to connect with people. I enjoy all kinds of music and truly believe that a great song is not confined to a year or an era. Music is timeless.

I’m delighted to be a part of the Magic 98.3 family. Everyone has welcomed me with open arms (and ears), and a big part of my weekend is stopping by and spending a few hours as we listen to today’s hits & yesterday’s favorites.
