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.

Every Redskins game from here on out will put an inordinate amount of attention of quarterback Robert Griffin III. That’s only natural. The franchise quarterback hasn’t looked like one since 2012.
RGIII received a message from his coach and executed it flawlessly. Griffin was muted, succinct and never off message in his press conference Wednesday afternoon.
While Redskins coach Jay Gruden tried to squash an apparent social media beef between his quarterback and wide receiver, he also had a strong critique of Robert Griffin III’s performance during Sunday’s loss to Tampa Bay.
Redskins tackle Trent Williams remains day-to-day with a sprained MCL in his right knee, coach Jay Gruden said on Monday.
Jay Gruden acknowledged DeSean Jackson took exception with RGIII’s postgame comments Sunday. Gruden responded in great length: “Robert needs to understand he needs to worry about himself, number one, and not everybody else.
