I'm a retired Broadcast Engineer with 38 years experience. I worked for WCBS AM & FM, WCBS-TV and The CBS Television Network in New York City for 28 years. I did audio on the Channel 2 news, the CBS Morning News, The CBS Evening News and Sound Effects on the Guiding Light soap opera for which I received 6 Emmy Award nominations from 1983 until 1989.

Prior to joining CBS I was Chief Engineer, Air Personality and News Director for WAPC AM & FM in Riverhead, NY. My first job in commercial broadcasting was at WASA AM & FM in Havre de Grace, MD where I was an Engineer and air personality. My inital on air experiuence was as Engineer/Announcer at WVHC-FM Hofstra College in Hempstead, NY.
