The Brain started at KHAK as an intern back in 1995 and has called mornings home since 1999. He has worked with several morning show partners, including Courtlin since 2015. Despite getting up in the middle of the night, Brain loves having fun on the air every weekday morning! Brain and his wife Holly make their home in Marion and have three children, Chase, Carly, and Cayleigh. They also have a dog Rigby, and a huge cat Cora. Brain is a huge sports fan and loves his Hawkeyes, Packers, and Cardinals. If you see Brain out and about in Marion or anywhere in Eastern Iowa, say hello! We hear he's friendly!
