Whip’s first taste of radio was when he was 9, calling into Denver morning shows and winning sports trivia contests. The DJs hated him, and he’s pretty sure he’s the reason stations started a “must be at least 12 to win” rule.

He got his start at his college’s station. After flunking, er, dropping out, he found a DJ job in Santa Fe and has been chasing it ever since. Whip’s worked all over, including New York, where he got into a well-publicized on-air spat with his co-worker, Howard Stern. Guess who won that one?!

Whip’s been married for many years and has two kids in college. He’s a huge sports fan, especially baseball and football, and WHIP sings in a punk rock band.
