Greg excels at hosting vibrant, fun and captivating radio & is a sharp and seasoned radio pro who amasses listeners on-air, in person and on-line.
Unlike most deejays, Greg began his radio career in a swimming pool. As a member of the University of Minnesota Gopher swim team, Greg used to break-up tedious workouts by playing announcer. Although his antics never made him a championship swimmer, it led to his first full-time radio job ten months later in Lincoln, Nebraska. From there, Greg became one of America’s best-known afternoon and night “jocks” landing gigs at KDWB in Minneapolis and WPLJ and HOT 97 in New York City. Greg became one of the few personalities to successfully shift to mornings where he’s been a market leader in Seattle, Denver, Minneapolis, and most recently Houston, Tx.
He’s most proud of beginning “Greg and Bo’s 36 hours for Kids” in Denver and raised more than three million dollars in four years for Children’s Hospital. He’s been the main host of numerous radiothons in Seattle for St. Jude and for Children’s Cancer Research while at KS95 in Minneapolis.
Greg’s a self-confessed neat freak who’s never met a hanging towel or soup can label he couldn’t fix. He also loves to read, travel (if he has leg room), good cheap wine and fixing other people’s problems but his own.
