Hey everybody! I’m Doug…yes like the cartoon. I was born and raised in good ole Centralia, Illinois where I still reside. I graduated Centralia High School in 2013, OrFAN 4 Life! CHS is where I began acting in drama club and doing shows at the Centralia Cultural Society. I also was part of the Theatre Guild at Kaskaskia College! Acting is what got me started in the radio biz, well, that and listening to the Cardinals games on 94.1FM!
I am new here to WMIX but definitely not new to the company. I’ve been working with Withers Broadcasting in Centralia since 2015. I started out as a board op then was lucky enough to co-host Big Sports NOW on WILY. I then got the opportunity to host Hotline on WILY as well. Now, I’m ready to party every afternoon on WMIX!
Fun facts for ya:
I am a firefighter on the Centralia Fire Protection District, which I’ve been around all my life but finally joined in May of 2013.
I still act in and direct shows at the Centralia Cultural Society, so if I’m not at WMIX, you can find me there year round.
I have a tattoo of a lion, because I like lions! (I have 3 other tattoos as well!)
