He'll do a great show every day that will inspire listeners and help stations grow their audience."

"STU EPPERSON, ED ATSINGER, DAVE SANTRELLA, PHIL BOYCE, HUGH HEWITT, DENNIS PRAGER and all the rest are names I've revered for years. To be a part of what they are doing is an honor and a privilege. What's more, it will be fun and I'm champing at the bit to get started."
