In October of 2013 I had the honor of receiving the Silver Circle Award from the Midwest Chapter of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in St. Louis. My sponsor was former WCIA Anchor/Reporter and University of Illinois journalism professor John Paul (pictured)

I received  the Illinois Broadcasters Silver Dome Award for Medium Market Best TV Anchor for 2017.

In June of 2016 I had a chance to meet and talk with Dick Van Dyke when he visited Danville.  After living in the Danville area since 1977, I finally met Danville's Favorite Son!

It's kinda cool having your name in a headline! Thanks to Rich Warren who pens a column in the Champaign-Urbana News-Gazette on October 20, 2019, who noted some corrections I sent him concerning a recent column of his.  Rich's column is a great service to the techies in the area with information about A/V issues and of course television.... Thanks Rich!

Read the column by clicking on the button above.

It's always fun to discuss TV history with these two broadcast veterans, Brain Barnhart (U of I Sports Play by Play Announcer) and Mike Haile (GM of WDWS/WHMS/WKIO and "Mike in the Morning" morning host on WHMS.

This was broadcast on November 19, 2019 on "Penny for Your Thoughts" on WDWS-Radio, Champaign, IL

This was one of the most successful presentations I've done to date. A great crowd, including some WCIA former employees and personalities, along with many other local TV fans.  I'll return eventually to do it again soon!
