I've been on the air at WBSM since 2002, when I had the chance to co-host the weekly sports program, "The Locker Room." In 2006, I began hosting my own program, "Spooky Southcoast," which covers paranormal topics and has aired Saturday nights at 10 p.m. ever since. In 2013, I took over the Saturday morning time slot from Taylor Cormier, focusing on local stories and general talk, and remained there for about four years, when I was offered a full-time position in the WBSM newsroom. I then worked as a reporter and afternoon news anchor for the next 18 months. In July 2018, I was given the opportunity to combine all of that experience to become the Digital Managing Editor for Townsquare Media New Bedford. My job is to oversee the digital brands for both WBSM and Fun 107, including their websites and social media.
