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 ELECTRO CONVULSIVE THERAPY & THE PA PSYCHIATRIC INSTITUTE
Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT) transforms lives. ECT is a procedure used to treat severe depression. It involves passing electrical currents through the brain which causes a change in brain chemistry. The net effect is relief from depression and mental illnesses.
ECT works faster than drug treatments but has a stigma surrounding it. Many remember the scenes during the movie One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. ECT treatments are not like that. ECT is an effective treatment.
Nan Siedel is the ECT Coordinator at PSI and will discuss with us how the treatment works and who can benefit from it.
The Pennsylvania Pscyhiatric Institute is a collaboration of Pinnacle Health and Penn State Hershey offering trusted experience and compassionate care...and hope for those suffering from mental illness and psychiatric disorders.

But The Big 33 is more than just a game. There are the many scholarships which are awarded to students statewide.

There are the many great sponsors and volunteers that make the game and everything around it possible.
And there are those professionals who have teamed up with The Big 33 to offer their expertise. Like the athletic trainers and staff at CPRS Physical Therapy. Jeff Shields from CPRS made this interview possible because they wanted to help promote what the Big 33 is all about.
