Meet KingFM DJ – Grateful Mike
I’m proud to be a native Wyomingite.
I attended school in Cheyenne at Pioneer Park Elementary, McCormick Junior High and graduated from Central High. After several years performing in plays and writing for the Wingspan newspaper, I received my Associates Degree from LCCC.
I enjoy spending time with my wife and two children; hiking on the rocks at Vedauwoo; taking pictures; traveling or listening to music.
Music is my passion, discovering new recordings, reading about bands and seeing live acts. I also like black and white movies, any Monty Python, The Simpsons and The Walking Dead.
I’ve worked at Safeway, the Post Office and several radio stations around Cheyenne, Colorado and California.
I started my broadcasting career at KFBC after being hired by Larry Birleffi. I've done news at K-Jewel and was Mike 'The Lion' playing oldies on 1480 KRAE. In Colorado, I worked on AM 60 KIIX and KTCL and while in California did overnight's on KDUO and KRSO.
I followed my dream of acting to southern California where I got small parts, worked at a Music Plus store and attended lots of concerts including dozens of Grateful Dead shows.
Thanks for listening.
