It all started in the basement of his Colorado Springs home when he was a teen, playing DJ with his 45’s. He was having fun but didn’t really give it much more thought until college when he had to declare a major. While thumbing through the class catalog, he came across The Communications Department and BINGO, he found his home.
Thirty-seven years later he is still doing what he loves, being on the air and playing music! He moved to Idaho in 1978 and fell in love with Boise, the ideal place to live and raise a family.
KJ worked for KFXD-AM for about five years, then onto KGEM! He stayed there until yet another call came in from a brand-new FM country station, KQFC, to be the first one to sign on the station and worked there for sixteen years!
KJ loved the country format but the music he grew up on was called his name, saying “come to K-HITS and bring back memories of the songs you were playing back in the 70’s when they were brand new.” Off he went to play the Superhits of the 60-70-and 80’s, staying there for 10 years.
Today he’s playing all the Feel Good Favorites from the 60’s and 70’s and every once in a while, slips in some 50’s all on 101.5 KOOL FM. He loves being the morning drive host, waking people up with wacky stories and fun contests, all while giving them the MOST music in the morning!
When KJ isn’t on the air you can find him as the arena voice for the Boise State Broncos Men and Women’s basketball teams. He’s had the honor of being ‘the voice of the Broncos’ for over 30 years. In addition, he also announces the Boise State University Softball games and loves to play golf!
