Krystal 93's News & Sports Director
I am a Colorado Guy, having gone to the same high school as my parents in Colorado Springs. After Graduation, I enlisted in the U.S. Navy, where I traveled to exotic places like Vietnam, The Philippines, Hong Kong, Thailand, Japan, and Australia. I went to College after the Navy, where I Majored in Broadcasting. Asked about something that has nothing to do with radio that I do, would be that I'm a certified fork lift operator, a certified Kansas City Barbeque Society judge, and a certified USSSA softball Umpire...I guess that makes me certifiable. ;-)
