I've been working with Jeff Deminski, or Heff-ay, since our first run at New Jersey 101.5 from 1994 to 1999. After 12 years in Michigan, we came back in 2011. I have three children (two of whom were born in the Garden State), with one at Montclair State and two in high school in Ocean County. I live in Jackson, where I enjoy grilling burgers 12 months a year on my Big Green Egg.
