Back To My Roots
I was born in Indianapolis. I went to school in Indianapolis. I live in Indianapolis. I work… everywhere BUT Indianapolis. That has been the way life’s opportunities have shifted over the past few years. In 2013, I will have broadcast sports in roughly 20 states and every-sized city imaginable. When I come back to Indy, I miss being engaged in the local sports scene (beyond being a fan), so I did something about it.
Starting next week, and throughout the school year, I am pleased to be a part of a new show on Fox Sports Indiana and Midwest: The Chevrolet Indiana Prep Zone. It’s a magazine/feature type show that airs weekly on Thursday afternoons at 5:00 p.m., and while I won’t be reporting very often, I will have a weekly segment of high school news and notes. Who’s injured, who set a record or who has committed to college. Any sport, any school. It’s all fair game.
My role is nothing fancy or spectacular, but it gives me a reason to be engaged with central Indiana sports, and that is important to me. I got my start broadcasting for North Central High School, and it has been 14 years since I last needed to pay close attention to the best in the prep ranks of the IHSAA. I can’t wait to learn about some of the best stories.
