I’m the youngest voice heard on WMAN. They call me a utility man.
I board operate the sports games you hear through the week, host " The WMAN Sports Grill " as we talk local and Ohio sports each night from 6 - 8 p.m. , and I fill in for the other full time staff when needed. Our production director calls on me when he’s on vacation to take on all of his production duties. In addition to that, I help our sister station Y-105 from time to time.
Besides being in the studio…you can hear me every fall during high school football season calling play by play or adding some colorful commentary. In the winter, I’ll put my two cents in with high school basketball.
Before this great opportunity with WMAN in 2006, I was with the Clear Channel stations in Marion for 4 years.
Outside of radio, I currently reside in Ontario with my wife and our cat.
Cleveland Indians 2nd basemen Jason Kipnis is one of the hottest players in Major League Baseball right now and was just named the AL Player of the Week for the 2nd time in June.
What a month of June it was for Kipnis, who batted .419 for the month! He had 39 hits, 25 RBI, 20 walks, 17 extra-base hits, 17 runs scored, 9 stolen bases and 4 home runs.
If you look back over the history of baseball only 5 players have had the kind of month that Kipnis did with 39 hits, 25 RBI, 20 walks, 17 extra-base hits and 9 steals. The last player to do it was Chuck Knoblauch in 1996 and Barry Bonds in 1992.
Could player of the month be next?? and could this be what the Indians need for this team to finish strong?
You would think this would get him an invite to the All-Star Game in New York in a couple weeks too.
Kipnis looks like a star for years to come at the corner of Carnegie and Ontario.
