said what he likes most about radio is the challenge of it.
The audience relies on you for information and there are no
visual aids to help explain the information, like you have
on TV. So you have to make it both descriptive and fun!
favorite radio moment was when he called the Lani Erwin jump-shot
that put Wheelersburg in the Ohio Regional Basketball Championship
game, co-announcing with Chuck Greenslate. Christian claims
it was an absolutely crazy moment and fans (and announcers)
were going wild!
