I’ve spent my entire career in newspapers. There’s nothing I love more than telling stories. Now, thanks to program director Chris Kinard and the good folks at 106.7 The Fan, I get to do that in a new medium, radio, and I couldn’t be more excited.

I’ve been hired to cover the Redskins for our station. That’s something I got a taste of working for the Washington Times.

I’m from Silver Spring. I went to Gonzaga High and the University of Maryland. I live in Bethesda. Some would have you believe that makes me the equivalent of a unicorn – a honest-to-goodness native Washingtonian.

But I know there’s plenty of you out there who grew up here, in Bowie or Kensington, in Annandale or Woodbridge, in the District or in Ashburn, who live and die with these local teams. I’ve seen pretty much everything D.C. sports has thrown at you in recent years – some good, sure, but plenty bad.
