The Fuzzy Mic

The Fuzzy Mic

After retiring from a 30-year, major market morning radio career, I'm often asked what I miss the most about the job. I miss 4 C's...camaraderie, creativity, compensation and, most of all, conversation. The Fuzzy Mic, built around conversation to develop camaraderie, taps into creativity, and who knows, maybe someday will lead to compensation. So, while The Fuzzy Mic allows me to fill some professional voids, it's my sincere hope that maybe you'll find something personally fulfilling in it too.

But this time, there are angles I haven't heard anyone mention regarding this widespread story about Penn swimmer, Lia Thomas.

In high school, my dream job was to write for Weekend Update on Saturday Night Live. I loved Dennis Miller and Norm Macdonald in the anchor chair. As time passed, I let go of that dream.
