Tomorrow (Feb. 27th) marks the one-year anniversary of me starting here at 99.1 The Whale. In a way, it's hard to believe it's been a year already, but sometimes it feels like I've been here a lot longer than that. I've been working radio in Binghamton for 29 years now, and I find that hard to believe. Over the last year, you have made me feel welcomed here at the Whale. I know a lot of listeners had listened to me in the past and it was cool to reconnect with them. I've had listeners come up to me in person and welcome me to the station and tell me they enjoy listening to me in the morning because I help them get their day started. That is an awesome feeling knowing that you are doing your part to make people's day a little better.

Over the year we've shared laughs with all the Strange But True stories. And, over the course of the year, I've had to break some bad news as well, passing along news stories of shootings, weather disasters, and deaths of Classic Rock artists. And even though talking about those things is not my favorite part of my job, I still feel a sense of pride knowing that I am helping you to stay informed of what's going on in our area as well as around the world.

So thank you for a great inaugural year, and I look forward to hanging out with you in the morning for many more years to come.

Here is the video from last year of Doug handing the morning show over to me.
