Doug began his interest in listening to the spoken word when his Dad was in Vietnam in the 1960s and mailed reel-to-reel tapes as audio "letters." From that experience, Doug began listening late at night to some of America's famous radio stations,and a path to a career was born.
Doug's family located in Nashville and he attended Middle Tennessee State University where he graduated with a journalism degree. Within 5 months of graduation, Doug was hosting his first talk show and involved in news/talk/sports broadcasting since. He spent over a decade hosting a talk show in Columbus-Ft.Benning, GA where his support of veteran health care led to congressional recognition. Doug was also honored by the city council for his broadcast coverage of Hurricane Opal in 1995.
In 2001, Doug returned to Nashville and led WWTN-FM to its highest ratings and revenue in station history. Like many of his colleagues, Doug was on air during the nightmare morning of September 11, 2001. Nashville listeners were glued to the coverage and the station remains one of the most popular in a city known for country music. Following Nashville, Doug took his show to Denver where he hosted afternoon drive until 2005.
In 2005, it was time to take a chance and he began his own broadcast related business and working for some of the largest stations in the country.
Doug is married to Margaret who was also a member of the media as a TV reporter/anchor. She served as a White House intern for President Ronald Reagan in 1987.
