J-Dub was born in Springfield, Mo to missionary parents,...which in turn led to him being able to grow up (if we want to call it that) in Nairobi, Kenya.  After gradutating high school in 1998 and coming back to the states, it was either go to college or get a job.  It just so happened he was lucky to have a friend in radio who had the same sense of humor, and put him to work as a weekend "stunt-boy".  From there, like most jocks, he gained a late-night air shift, slowly working his way to where we are today...10 years later, hanging out with you from 10am-2pm right here on 96.9 the Kow.  He currently lives in carthage, mo with his wife and daughter.
