Mix Mornings with your Host Jason every weekday from 6am-10am
I am originally from Auburn Hills, MI. I have been in radio for about 15yrs now. I got my start at the very bottom as an intern doing all the fun things like getting coffee for everyone, shining their shoes, giving piggy back rides down 10 flights of stairs cause the talent didn't feel like walking that day and some other great things. Ok Ok! It wasn't that bad but I did start as an intern at 93.1 WDRQ in Detroit and did just about everything I could get my hands on from promotions, overnight DJ, night show co-host, morning show side kick, broadcast engineer and much more. I then moved on to 102.5 WIOG in Saginaw, MI to start on a Night show then moved up to having my own show again on the Afternoon Drive. I have a Huge passion not only for radio but for Music. I love to be on top of all that Brand New music that is out there each and every day. I also DJ (yes spin music) for weddings, school dances ect.....The best part of radio is when I can get out of the studio and meet everyone that I broadcast to everyday.
Favorite T.V./Movies: There are so many! Mythbusters, White colar, Leverage, Gangland (only so I know what sign to throw up in my area so I don't get shot, lol), Greatest American Hero. Movies I absolutely love The Boondock Saints (only the first one cause the second sucked), Snatch, Avatar, Transformers and pretty much anything with Will Ferrell in it.
Sports/Activities: I love to play everything. Basketball (1998 Oakland County slam dunk Champ) is my favorite, Football, Pool (no not swimming) and Drinking.
Tell us one Crazy Story from your Radio Career: Well let me think of a family friendly one quick, lol. When I was an intern in Detroit the night show host there told me and another intern to take some fireworks across the border to canada, light them off so they could see them from the station and come back. We did this with no problem but when we got back he failed to mention that was a Huge crime of smuggling weapons (yes they are considered weapons) across a border. So needless to say if we got caught I don't think I would be in radio today.
Where do you see yourself in 10yrs? Well hopfully I will still be kicking Butt here at the New Mix 107.3.
Last but not least Favorite food to make Quick: Hot dogs but I would rather grill them or anything for that fact.

Here is Your Top 5 List for Today
When you are your child are preparing for Halloween, do follow our tips and don’t ignore safety.
1. DO: Make your child easily visible to passing cars.
DON’T: Rely on flashlights alone.
The number one Halloween hazard is kids being hit by cars because children are twice as likely to be struck by a car on Halloween as on any other night. In addition to supplying parents and children flashlights, opt for a light colored costume and accent costumes and candy bags with reflective or glow in the dark tape. If your child is wearing a coat, add the tape to that as well. Reflective tape will glow in the beams of a car’s headlights making your child easy to spot.
2. DO: Ensure costumes fit well and properly.
DON’T: Dress them in long, baggy or loose clothing.
If a costume is too long and is dragging on the ground, children are not able to move freely and are more likely to trip and fall, which can result in injury or strangulation. Additionally big, baggy sleeves or billowing skirts are more likely to be in contact with candles or other fire sources.
3. DO: Dress them in costumes made of flame-resistant material.
DON’T: Mistake flame-resistant for fire proof.
Fire retardant fabrics will resist burning and should extinguish quickly. While flame-resistant materials burn less easily and can be put out quickly, they can still cause burn injuries. There have been at least 16 cases in which children under 15 years of age suffered burn injuries involving Halloween costumes since 1980, including one death, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Because even flame-resistant costumes can still catch fire, ensure your child’s costume has less of a chance to be in contact with candles and other fire sources. Avoid costumes made with flimsy materials and fabric that hang down, like a cape.
4. DO: Use face paint rather than a mask.
DON’T: Assume your child’s face mask is safe.
If you do choose to dress your child in a costume with a mask, make sure it fits properly and allows them to see and breathe easily. Check their mask for proper eye, nose and mouth opening because improperly fitted masks can interfere with your child’s vision or breathing. Another option is to skip the facemask and use nontoxic face paint for your child’s costume instead.
5. DO: Ditch the costume accessories so your child has a free hand.
DON’T: Allow your child to use accessories that are not soft and flexible.
It is best to leave your child with a free hand, so they can hold someone’s hand when crossing the street or catch themselves if they fall. If your child’s costume does include an accessory, make sure it is soft and flexible.
