I’m currently a Sports Anchor and Reporter at CBS/Entercom-Radio (WBBM, Newsradio 780 and 105.9FM), as well as Director of College Sports, Host and Content Producer at Naperville Community Television Channel 17. I have been with both stations since the 2015.
At WBBM I’ve had the privilege of working along side some of the titans in the Chicago broadcasting industry, including the voice of the Bears, Jeff Joniak. I’ve also covered and produced content from major sporting events — including the 2020 NBA All-Star Game, as well as Chicago Bears, Bulls and Blackhawks games. While the content is mostly comprised of live radio hits and audio wraps for on-air use, I’ve also worked as an MMJ, using social media to round out coverage of these events.
With NCTV17 I have been in charge of the station’s relationship with North Central College for the past five years. In addition to lead play-by-play duties and hosting a weekly football coach’s show, my duties range from reporter to video producer to liaison between the two parties. Highlights from my time in Naperville include covering national title winning football, cross country, track and field and triathlon programs.
Previously, I called games for an independent baseball team, the Schaumburg Boomers, for two seasons. While in Schaumburg, the Boomers won the 2014 Frontier League Championship with Jackman alongside fellow North Central alum, Tim Calderwood, in the booth.
I’m a graduate of North Central College, serving as the Sports Director for two years as a sophomore and junior, and as Station Manager my senior year. I also helped organize and form the first multi-media student-run platform at the College, NCC Linked. My final two years were spent merging the resources previously separated between the newspaper, radio station and television program.
I’m originally from Glenview and graduated from Glenbrook South High School. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in Broadcast Communication and Interactive Media Studies from North Central in 2014.
When not behind a mic or in front of a camera, I like to spend my time concocting new recipes in the kitchen, getting frustrated on the golf course and getting pummeled in fantasy sports.
