Wow Where do I start?.. Well for my likes, Motorcycles, Bowling (Yeah, I roll 300's) and Pool are my sports. I am a father of 2 girls, who are completely the reason why I breathe.. My girls have inspired me to be the best in life at all things, not from the moment they were born, but from the moment they were conceived. Being a dad is the quintessential favorite part of my life. I also have a fascination with rescue and law enforcement. I was hired as a full-time fire rescuer the same week I was hired as an on call (not even part-time) radio personality. It’s obvious that I chose radio, and it indeed has been good to me, more so than I am to it. Radio broadcasting has always been my passion and was ultimately birthed into me by my late father who worked in radio for almost 50 years. So I guess you can say I got it honestly. I can truly say that I am blessed beyond measure to have such a great career, which allows me to experience so much the average person will probably never do or see. I am truly grateful to God for this dream now reality lifestyle that I am blessed to have...To Him be The Glory...The Father, Teacher & Mentor

"""""Chris if you read this on the radio, Please Please Please keep my identity private. Okay, my boyfriend has been incarcerated for the last 3 years. We have two kids together which is why in the past I tried to hold on from moving on for the sake of their knowing their father and no other man. I recently told him that I wanted to move on and cannot wait my whole life for a man who was sentenced to 16 years. He can’t even have visitation, but is allowed to mail me letters. In the last letter I received from him, he told me in so many words that he will not allow the streets to let me have a life outside of me and with another man. He is incarcerated for violent crimes, and I am in fear that if I tried to move on, he has some of his people watching my every move. I am 26 and by the time he is released I will be over 40. I want a better life for my kids, and at the same time I’m afraid to move on for fear of my life. What should I do?"""""
