Listen every Saturday morning 7-8. We are TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS as we spotlight the fine "area" businesses and get to meet the fine area businessmen and businesswomen who provide such great products and services to us here in Central Pennsylvania....and alot of times....maybe some services and products you may not be aware of or know are available here in our area.
It is our mission to support our local businesses because nowhere will you get better value and customer service than with a locally owned and operated business.
"We're Takin Care of Business".....Saturday mornings on WHP Talk Radio 580
I have lived in Central PA since the early 80's. I grew up outside of Uniontown, PA in the southwestern part of the state in a VERY small coal mining town. Worked on the farm, in the mines, drove truck and worked hard. Went to college at West Virginia University from 1975-79. Was offered my first radio job at WAJR/WVAQ in Morgantown, WV right out of school. In fact, I picked up my diploma Sunday afternoon at 2PM and started that day on the air at 4PM.
I moved to Harrisburg and Central PA in 1984 to get out of radio, but ended up being offered a job at WKBO and then Sunny 99. I was very fortunate in meeting Kathi Wise (Homecoming Queen-CD East 1978) when we worked together at 99.3 FM in the late 80's and we were married in October of 1992. Our first son Jordan was born in October of 1993. Our second son Matthew was born in September of 1997. We have lived in the Linglestown area at the base of the mountain since 97 and are blessed to have WONDERFUL neighbors and friends who we enjoy our spare time with.
We have quite a menagerie. A gorgeous black lab named Casey, a FAT cat named Ramsey and also Sabrina...a white cat we rescued from a shelter who we later found out cannot hear.
I love the area and am proud to call it home. But still a proud supporter of the Pittsburgh Pirates, Steelers and Penguins....and of course the WVU Mountaineers.
Along with my on air work Saturday mornings on WHP, I am the full time Creative Director for the 5 Clear Channel-Harrisburg radio stations. I write and produce many of the commercials you hear. I am also the voice on commercials you hear on other area radio stations and on local TV.
I also "produce" other radio programs including Let's Talk Travel With Sandy Fenton and The Old Barn Hockey Show and Legends Of Success with John Resnick which is broadcast nationwide.
I live by the motto of FAITH & STRENGTH. I am blessed to have a job and career that I love. I enjoy coming to work every single day. I love life and love to laugh. And I will always greet you with a smile.
7-7:30 EXPLAINING MEDICARE WITH HIGHMARK BLUE SHIELD
Medicare can be confusing. I am confused and I am not even eligible yet. If you have parents who are asking for advice or if you are eligible for Medicare and need help choosing a plan, I hope this interview will provide you with some great information or point you in the right direction to find some answers.
We sat down with Tim Lightner from Highmark Blue Shield and asked him to explain the differences in plans for people who are Medicare eligible. This is important and timely because the Medicare Annual Enrollment Period for 2013 starts on October 15th and ends on December 7th. This is the time for people with Medicare to compare and make decisions on what plan is best for them.
Tim will go over some of these plans and also explain what Highmark offers. We also asked Tim about Healthcare Reform and what effect it will have on Medicare.
This is Part 1 of a two part show which will air this week and next Saturday, October 13th at 7 AM.
Highmark has made available a number of ways to help you during this enrollment period. They have a special website where you can see and compare the plans. They also have some local seminars coming up here in our area. And Highmark also has local insurance retail stores called Highmark Direct where you can meet face to face with an insurance expert.
Highmark's Medicare Website is here: Highmark-Medicare Page

7:30-8 CPRS STORIES
Patients and friends of CPRS Physical Therapy took time out of their busy schedule to join us and tell us why they chose CPRS to help them recover from injury and surgery.
Tim Noll from Noll Financial Services and Dustin Bixler from the Harrisburg City Islanders soccer team join me and Jeff Shields from CPRS. Tim had not one, but two shoulder injuries and surgeries. Dustin, a grad from Red Land and Lock Haven and one of the top defenders in the league tore up his knee last year. Both will explain what they went through and how they got back to tip top form doing what they love thanks to the team at CPRS.
