Every Friday night from 8 p.m. until 10 p.m. enjoy two hours of the best jazz of the last 70 years — with a strong accent on New Orleans.
Each week Jazz New Orleans features a "Player of the Week" — with an extended conversation and the music of a significant jazz artist. "Players of the Week" featured so far include Dianne Reeves, Wayne Shorter, Joshua Redman and Steve Masakowski. Upcoming shows will feature Donald Harrison, Jr., Herbie Hancock, Ellis Marsalis, Dr. Michael White, Poncho Sanchez and Terence Blanchard.
I was born in New York City and raised outside of Detroit. I graduated from Michigan State University in 2007 with an Honor's Degree in Broadcast Journalism and then took a reporting job in southern Illinois. I worked there for about five months before taking over as the News and Sports Director at two stations in central Minnesota. After two-and-a-half years in the frigid cold, I accepted the position at WBAA in June of 2010. I have really enjoyed my time working in the West Lafayette area. I love being out in the community covering a wide range of events from school board and city council meetings to elections and football and basketball games.
When I am not working, I am usually watching some kind of sports game, most likely the Pistons, Lions, or Tigers. I also work as a volunteer for the Big Brothers Big Sisters program in Lafayette which has been an outstanding experience.
I look forward to many more years to come at WBAA and in the West Lafayette community.
