Scotty. aka Uncle Scotty.
I’m a Missouri boy, born, bred & lifelong. (If you don’t count 4 or 5 wayward years in Southern Illinois.)
I started working at a hometown radio station in Cape Girardeau while I was in high school, and have managed to avoid getting a real job ever since. I’ve worked at Clear 99 for a long time, and been with Zimmer Radio even longer. I joke about it making me feel old, but I’m to the very gratifying point in my career that I now meet people who listened to me in the car with their parents, and now they listen in the car with their kids. I can’t think of a better compliment.
Outside of work I spend a lot of time on a bicycle, on the beautiful trails and country roads of Missouri. As is inevitable at my age (50-ish), my health has become more of a focus for me. You won’t have to listen long to hear me trying to convince others about the benefits of a good bike ride.
The life of Jerry Seinfeld has fascinated me for several years, James Bond has fascinated me for several decades, and I am an unapologetic fan of the animated shows of Seth MacFarlane. (Family Guy, American Dad & The Cleveland Show) If I had kids I’m not sure I’d let them watch, but I love them!
I believe that there is a God in Heaven that created this world and everything in it. In his wisdom he has chosen to bless me with a life that I nowhere near deserve, and I don’t thank him enough. But he has given me the tools to do this job, in this place, at this time, and that makes me a happy man.
I was born and raised in Missouri and grew up listening to country and 80s rock, which are now my two favorite genres. Kenny Chesney and Def Leppard.
I didn’t know what I wanted to do in terms of a career until my third year in college, but I knew a decision needed to be made. I realized two things: music was a passion of mine, and I had already been on a path to a business degree. I decided to put the two together and came up with a career in ‘music business.’
I was given an awesome opportunity to be part of Clear 99 and work with the amazing on-air talents we have here. Though I never thought about being part of radio, I’m not one to shy away from trying things I know nothing about.
Football (CHIEEEEFS), hunting and fishing, I Love Lucy, getting outdoors, food (hello cooking channel), family, friends, beaches, summer, Nashville, painting.
