As a native of Connecticut who is new to the Capital Region, I’m no stranger to a sports fanbase that roots for a little bit of everything. Yankees vs. Red Sox, Giants vs. Patriots, Jets vs. themselves…the rivalries I’ve grown up watching and made a career talking about. I’m excited to bring my passion for sports talk to the airwaves at The Team! I come to WTMM after three seasons as a Color Analyst for Quinnipiac University’s men’s and women’s hockey team broadcasts on ESPN+. I grew up listening to sports talk radio and grew that love into a career, which led me to run Quinnipiac’s student-run radio station, WQAQ 98.1-FM (go Bobcats!). I'm also the radio voice of the Albany FireWolves, so don't miss those games starting in December, and don't forget to Pack The House! I’ve met some great people during my time at QU, and with the Hartford Yard Goats, Valley Blue Sox, and other places along the way. They all taught me one thing: leave no story untold. I’ll tell all of those stories every weekday from 3-7 PM on The Drive with Charlie & Dan.
