My first professional broadcasting job was as a DJ at WDKX Radio in my hometown of Rochester, New York. I eventually started my own news department.
I was All-Ivy League in Track and Field at Cornell University. My events were long jump and triple jump.
I’m a big Buffalo Bills Fan. Proud we went to 4 straight Super Bowls. Still upset that we lost every one.
My first job in Portland was at KPTV-12. The studios were across the street from what is now Providence Park.
My high school basketball team, the Cardinal Mooney Cardinals, were ranked #5 in New York state my junior year. I played center.
My mom, Nell Peyton, moved to Gresham in 1975, with her husband Alexander, and my younger sister Una. I followed them to Oregon in 1982.
I have two daughters. Both live on the East Coast. That’s Anika on the left, Jessica on the right.
I lived in Trinidad, West Indies, the year before I moved to Oregon.
I always keep a fresh new pair of white Nike Air Force Ones for special occasions!
Check out the Afro. Those were the days!
