Brad is the resident ‘cheesehead’ on the WXCY staff and is originally from Milwaukee, WI. He is a huge Green Bay Packers fan and has been on the radio since he was just 15!
Although Brad pretty much grew up in radio, he did have several odd jobs before making radio his full-time career after graduating High School. He did inventory for stores and businesses, worked food and beer stands at the WI State Fair Park and also had a budding career as a cashier/bagger at a grocery store in Milwaukee. He’s thankful radio became the long-term path as his future in the grocery industry wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. I guess you could say our boy Brad wasn’t quite cut out for the “10 items or less” lane.
Brad’s lived in some interesting places before settling near the MD/DE state line. Among the cornfields in the midwest, along the Gulf of Mexico in Southern Mississippi, on both shores of Lake Michigan, in America’s 1st capitol (York, PA) but he’s happy to call this area home now! Brad admits to being addicted to soup from WaWa, playing tournament poker at area casinos, spending time with his yellow lab Lacey and also getting to as many concerts as possible.
“Without the listener family, I’m just a guy alone in a room talking to myself. They’re everything!” says Brad. We couldn’t agree more. Thanks for riding home with Brad every afternoon from 3-7pm on New Country, 103.7 WXCY!
