Hear the Seg-man each afternoon with Willie on The Stooge Report at 1:35pm and 2:35pm. You'll also hear Seg on with Eddie and Tracy. AND, Seg hosts the KOI Racing Report Show Sunday nights from 7pm-9pm. Then you can hear...oh hell. The guy works 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. Tune in The Big One and you'll hear Seg.
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.�

Most people are lucky to see the sky through their office window, let alone be in it.
But Karim Nafani beholds more than just a few trees and clouds from his desk at work... he gets to see the whole world in shimmering panorama.
And now the Dubai-based commercial airline captain and photographer has taken pictures of his cockpit and posted them online.
He says he began the project in a bid to document his daily routine through a series of otherworldly images that look more like oil paintings than photographs and reveal exactly what it is like for pilots at 35,000 feet.
Stunning view: Dubai-based Karim Nafani sees more than just a few trees and an open space from his desk at work... he gets to see the whole world in shimmering panorama
Panorama: This photograph is of a 1st officer enjoying the sunrise at 37,000 feet above sea level en route to Chittagong Bangladesh
Into the light: He says he began the project in a bid to document his daily routine through a series of stunning photographs that reveal exactly what it is like for pilots at 35,000 feet
The only trouble is, when it gets a bit stuffy, he can't open the window as any normal office worker would.
He said: 'I take you far away from skyscrapers and high rise building roof tops this time to somewhere much higher: welcome to my daily office!'
He gives the images their ethereal look through a technique called 'exposure bracketing' which involves setting up a DSLR camera to take at least three shots, each at a different exposure, before combining them to create the final print.
Great view: Karim usually has to be behind the camera to take pictures of the cockpit but here he turned the camera on himself
Motherboard: Apart from the beautiful views that confront Karim each day he takes to the skies, his pictures also remind viewers of the incredible array of levers, panels and buttons that cover almost every inch of an aircraft's cockpit
Hometown: Karim took this picture as he flew over his hometown Dubai
The result looks more like an oil painting on canvas than a real-time digital photograph.
Apart from the beautiful views that confront Karim each day he takes to the skies, his pictures also remind viewers of the incredible array of levers, panels and buttons that cover almost every inch of an aircraft's cockpit.
And, of course, he knows his way around them just as well as he does around those on his digital SLR camera.
But Karim's portfolio doesn't end inside his cockpit.
As a pilot he says he developed a keen interest in how the world looks from above.
So he went about climbing to the top of buildings and skyscrapers to picture cities from above.
Branching out: But Karim's portfolio doesn't end inside his cockpit
