In 2010, Dale Peterson portrayed himself, in a campaign video that went viral nationally, as a candidate for Alabama Agriculture Commissioner who would be tough on “thugs and criminals.” But after portraying himself as a folk hero, Peterson ended up in third place in the GOP primary.
Since then, it has been somewhat downhill for the former Republican candidate, who was arrested back in October for allegedly stealing beer from a Wal-Mart in Hoover, Ala. Peterson went on to claim that incident was a misunderstanding, arguing he “just had to pee” and was planning to pay for the beer after he had visited the store bathroom.
I've been one of those radio geeks since in my early teens. I always thought the guy on the radio was a really cool guy who knew everyone and everything. My travels have taken me from the snow of upstate New York, to the heat in the heart of Texas, to the majesty of the Pacific Northwest and now back to the Greatest Snow on Earth here in Utah.
I've been very fortunate to work for great companies and very talented people. Besides radio, I spent nearly seven years in television news producing, reporting and anchoring. While the exposure of TV news is nice, radio is what I truly love.
It's my hope that our daily conversation will be both entertaining and informative and end up creating great radio for everyone involved in the show and for people who take time to listen.
