Inside New Orleans

host_200x200_e_asherI am a lifelong New Orleanian and proud of it..  I began my love for radio as a young boy. I remember listening to it all. Talk, sports and music on a small AM transistor radio which I seemed to take everywhere. I loved it all... I was hooked. I wanted be in radio. The fulfillment of my dream began with an internship in 1982 at WNOE working in the news department and tried to pick up a few things while working with The Mary Foster Sports Show. One of my most memorable moments was when I interviewed the late Mayor “Dutch" Morial. The NFL strike of 1982 left me without my newfound internship. Needing a “REAL PAYCHECK," I took on several non-radio affiliated jobs but never lost my love for radio.

In 2002 on a dare, I decided to get back into radio. I kept telling everyone, "Hey, I can do sports talk better than those other guys!" With the support of one of my lifelong friends, I contacted AM 1450 (WBYU) to inquire about a weekend show. Jon Fine host of WBYU’s midday sports show “Sports Gumbo” got wind that "greatness" had entered the building and in October 2002 offered us a shot at co-hosting Sports Gumbo which I was a part of for about a podcast-archiveyear.

In August of 2003 SportsWrap hit the airwaves as a nighttime sports show on AM 690 (WTIX) It was my 1st chance to create, host, produce & market a local sports show. After less than a year, the three hour nightly show turned into a two hour midday gig. Then the proverbial hurricane happened... Katrina. On December of 2005 "Inside New Orleans" a midday news/talk show debuted on the all new AM 690 (WIST). It was my first opportunity to host and produce a show in a news/talk format. When you tune in I promise to be the most prepared and knowledgeable host in the market. Unafraid to call it like I see it, speaking the truth, while keeping my listeners informed and entertained on the latest New Orleans news, politics, sports and culture.
