 From WWDB's old website Winter 96/97 DATE OF BIRTH: another one who someone neglected to tell us HOMETOWN: Nashville

DATE OF BIRTH: another one who someone neglected to tell us

HOMETOWN: Nashville, North Carolina (no, not Tennessee... North Carolina)

EDUCATION: East Carolina University

CAREER NOTES: Phil, who came to WWDB from WTN-FM in Nashville, started his broadcast career working on a weekend TV news team. In between, as well as being a top-rated radio talk show host, his accomplishments include: being a writer & actor; recipient of an Addy Award for Creative Writing, Character Voice-Over And Production; having a supporting role in the motion picture "A Letter From Death Row" (starring Bret Michaels of the rock group "Poison") and appearing in numerous TV commercials including the WWDB "Beyond The Headlines" TV campaign.

   PERSONAL: Phil was raised in North Carolina. He went to East Carolina University with the intent of becoming a lawyer (like his father, grandfather and brother). Phil says that "once I got there, I discovered I didn't want to work that hard." His friend told him that he had a low voice and "should consider radio." The rest is history. Phil and his wife Susan (a direct descendent of William Penn) have two sons; Carr and Campbell.

LIKES: Family... Tennis... Talking... Anything Made With Chicken... Ian Fleming... Basketball (especially Carolina basketball)... Boats & The Beach... Talking... Writing... Watching "It's a Wonderful Life"... Collecting Political Campaign Buttons... Reagan/ Elvis/ Andy Griffith... Talking...

DISLIKES: Liver... probably a lot of other stuff you'll just have to tune in and find out...

FIRST RADIO JOB: Phil tells us he began his broadcasting career "behind the scenes" working on a local TV station's weekend news team. Shortly after he started this job, the owner of the station "had this hairbrained idea to sell the TV station and start this 24 hour news service. Everyone thought the owner had gone nuts." Oh, by the way, the "crazy" owner of that station just happened to be Ted Turner.
