New Jersey is my home. I was born and raised here. I went college at Montclair State and started my career ironically on the college radio station which, at the time, was on 101.5 FM! For 25 years I have had the best job on New Jersey 101.5 as the New Jersey Traffic North reporter on the morning show — first with Jim Gearhart and now with Bill Spadea as well as being a weekend music host playing Jersey’s Favorite Hits. I am humbled to know how much our audience depends upon the information in the traffic reports and all things Jersey. I know the roads — I drive them everyday and I hope that comes across on air as I try to help you avoid costly delays.
