Whether it was middle school plays, high school performances, or college venues, Taylor was always looking for a way to satisfy the "acting bug".

Since 2008, Taylor has worked in the WBSM newsroom, gathering news, covering stories, and relaying the happenings of the day to you. In 2011, Taylor was given the reigns to the Saturday morning slot, where he enjoyed bringing local happenings and discussion to you for nearly two years.
