How did you end up working at the Q?
While out of the ministry for a year and living in South Florida, our first General Manager interviewed me in the fall of 1992. Though I liked Florida, and was "comfortable", the Lord impressed on me that I was in preparation for this position in Wisconsin and the time would come that I would be at Q90FM. I visited in May 1993 (accepted the Position), started right away and then officially Moved to Green Bay in January 1994. Been here since...
Favorite Bible Passage:
Ephesians 6:10 - 18
My prayer for Q-90:
That God would have His way!! And NOT to be the Biggest Radio Station, but instead the Most Effective.
If you could add or change one thing to the Green Bay area what would it be?
Less taxes...hehehe!! Ok - get more of the general public to check out the Q and, more importantly, turn this city over for Christ!
