During the 5pm hour of Friday's Deminski & Doyle Show, our producer Joe Votruba made quite an announcement.

We spent the hour debating whether or not it's ever okay to remain friends with an ex. Joe chimed in with a story of his own, but he buried the lead. Little did we know that this was going to be the moment when Joe V decided to announce to the audience that he's gay.

We are so happy for him that he did, though!

You can listen to the announcement and story in the YouTube clip below.

Joe is excited to share this aspect of his life with everyone. He looks forward to having the opportunity to bring more attention to internal and external issues that affect the LGBT community and making the concept of being LGBT less weird to those who don't know much about it or are having a hard time accepting it.

Congratulations, Joe!
