Andy started in radio in high school and was an afternoon air personality at age 17.  He has since programmed and managed radio stations in Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana and Kentucky.  Andy relocated to Gainesville in 1999 as the General Manager of WJLF and transitioned with The Joy FM in 2004 when the station was purchased by Radio Training Network.  On weekends, Andy enjoys singing bass with a Gaither-style quartet and travels throughout the region.  One of his favorite memories as a vocalist is when his group opened for the great JD Sumner (famous bass singer who performed with Elvis).  After leaving the stage, JD slapped Andy on the chest and laughed as he said, “Hey, who ever heard of a red-headed bass singer?”
