 I’ve always been enamored by the allure of radio. Maybe it was because my father worked in radio. Maybe it was the personal connection I felt with the hosts on the microphone. Whatever it was, I’ve been hooked on it for as long as I can remember. From Sports Talk, to Public Radio storytelling, to Alternative Rock I always found something different about each format that I appreciate. 

 As a student at Onondaga Community College in 2008 I had the opportunity to intern with Gomez and Dave on TK99 and I learned so much about the craft of putting together a successful morning show. I finished up my Radio Production degree at SUNY Fredonia, as an active member of their student radio program, hosting a weekly sports talk show.

 In 2011 I started working for the Mars Hill Network in Syracuse as their Morning Show Sports Announcer and ended up working as their Traffic Manager. Eventually I would transition into their Program Director and after nearly six years at the network I accepted a position with WAER. As someone who has enjoyed storytelling podcasts for years joining WAER has been a true pleasure. The opportunity to share stories from members of a community that has been my home for nearly my entire life was what drew me to WAER. 

  When I’m not poking around the radio station I enjoy taking day trips with my wife Chelsea and our son Jack.

Alabama, Ohio State, Clemson, and Florida State. Those are some of the major contenders year in and year out in college football. Those squads are filled with 5 star recruits. But, for those athletes who don't immediately land at a major program, there is another way.

The uptempo offense that coach Dino Babers brought to Syracuse last season has brought a level of excitement to SU Football. But, Syracuse football hasn't always held that distinction. Back in the mid 1980s  the football program took a big step forward largely because of the late Dick MacPherson. 

WAER's Tim Scott takes us back in time to examine the success of the 1987 football team that ultimately ended up in the Sugar Bowl.
