A.  Well, I wasn’t a very good athlete so I had limited options in terms of wanting to play.  When I was a little boy I became intrigued by turning on the radio and hearing a voice describing what was going on with baseball, football, soccer, and basketball games.  Suddenly, at the age of five, I knew exactly what I wanted to do and that was to be a broadcaster.


Q.  You’ve been in the business for nearly 30 years and yet you still seem as passionate as ever.  What’s your secret?
