I was hired at 700WLW in 1978 and started out producing helicopter traffic reports when the station had the helicopter. I worked my way up and started helping out in the newsroom, covering stories, writing copy, etc. Then got into sports with the help of legends Andy Mac�Williams and Bob Trumpy. I then moved up to help out Sportstalk and been doing sports ever since. Trumpy actually gave�me my famous nickname�"SEG." Going to Northern Kentucky University started my career on the radio. Great people at NKU�especially Dick Murgatroyd, the former executive producer of the Bob Braun Show among others. Murg taught me right.
I have covered the Reds, Bengals, Bearcats, Muskateers, RedHawks, etc since the 1980's. I have been blessed to get to know some great sports stars over the years. Its been great to work with Trump, Cris Collinsworth, Boomer Esiason and Andy Furman on Sportstalk over the years.�I have been in the Reds Radio booth for 30 years learning from Marty Brenamann and the late Joe Nuxhall, along with Jeff Brantley and Thom�Brenamann.�Each game in the booth has been special.�
My love for auto racing started in 1978 following the late and great Dale Earnhardt, Sr plus my first trip to the Indy 500 that same year. I have also been blessed to meet some great people in the world of motorsports.
I went�to high�school at Colerain and graduated in 1976. From there, it was off to NKU and out�in 1980. I�live in Middletown with wife, Denise along with step daughter, Rachel. I am blessed to have three grandchildren from my other stepdaughter Sarah.�Our dog, Emma, passed away on Jan 4, 2007 after 14 years as the best dog and friend in the world.�

On this day in 2001, Dale Earnhardt Sr., considered one of the greatest drivers in National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) history, dies at the age of 49 in a last-lap crash at the 43rd Daytona 500 in Daytona Beach, Florida. Earnhardt was driving his famous black No. 3 Chevrolet and vying for third place when he collided with another car, then crashed into a wall. After being cut from his car, Earnhardt, whose tough, aggressive driving style earned him the nickname "The Intimidator," was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead of head injuries.
Earnhardt had been involved in another crash at the Daytona 500 in 1997, when his car flipped upside down on the backstretch. He managed to escape serious injury and went on to win Daytona in 1998, his first and only victory in that race after 20 years of trying. The 200-lap, 500-mile Daytona 500, which was first run in 1959 at the newly opened Daytona International Speedway, is one of NASCAR's premiere events as well as its season opener.
Earnhardt, whose father was a race car driver, was born on April 29, 1951, in Kannapolis, North Carolina, and dropped out of high school to pursue his own racing career. He went on to become one of NASCAR's most successful and respected competitors, winning 76 Winston Cup (now known as the Sprint Cup) races in his career and taking home a record seven Cup championships, a feat achieved by just one other driver in his sport, Richard Petty. In addition to his legendary accomplishments as a driver, Earnhardt was also a successful businessman and NASCAR team owner. The 2001 Daytona race which cost Earnhardt his life was won by Michael Waltrip, who drove for Dale Earnhardt Inc. (DEI). Earnhardt's son, Dale Jr., also a DEI driver (until 2008, when he began driving for the Hendrick Motorsports team), took second place in the race.
Dale Earnhardt Sr.'s death in 2001 made him the fourth NASCAR driver to die within a nine-month period and eventually prompted NASCAR officials to implement a series of more stringent safety regulations, including the use of head-and-neck res
