Before moving into political reporting, I broadcast sports for 16 years, mainly at the NCAA Division I level.
I served as the voice of the University of New Orleans (2006-2010), handling radio and TV for men's and women's basketball and for baseball and hosting and producing their coaches' shows on radio and TV. I also handled duties for the Sun Belt Conference, broadcasting their championship events for men's and women's basketball, baseball, softball and soccer. I was the inaugural winner of the Sun Belt Broadcaster of the Year Award.
I was the voice of Nicholls State University (2010-2015), doing radio for men's and women's basketball and for baseball and hosting and producing their coaches' shows on regional TV, in addition to serving as assistant athletic director.
Additionally, I spent three seasons in minor league baseball, broadcasting for the Inland Empire 66ers (2004), an affiliate of the Seattle Mariners, and for the Southwest Michigan Devil Rays (2005-2006), a Tampa Bay farm team.
Prior to that, I spent one season broadcasting West Virginia University men's and women's soccer for the Mountaineer Sports Network, and three seasons calling women's basketball and baseball for WWVU-FM, where I doubled as sports director.
CONSULTING AND DEVELOPMENT
I've consulted for several organizations, helping to develop young broadcast talent.
I'm mentoring a journalism student at my alma mater, along with developing young broadcast talent for the 2022 Maccabiah Games.
