Roger grew up on a Quarter Horse and Produce Farm in Ashtabula, Ohio (North East Corner) where his childhood classmates would cheer for summer vacation while he would whimper knowing his father would put him to work all summer long. So to avoid a life full of heavy lifting Roger decidied to start his career in Country Radio.
Along with his career, Roger is married a wonderful woman named Ruby, who still loves him through all his country boy "issues". When they married they combined their two families to make a home full of six kids, Zachary, Kleora, Heather, Jeremiah, Brandon and Christian.
When you don't hear Roger on 99.9 Kiss Country you'll find him playing out in the backyard with his kids as they are all very active in sports, so much so his youngest son sleeps with a baseball bat instead of a teddy bear.

Rising country star Morgan Frazier has a new single, "Hey Bully" which I believe will hit hard with a lot of school students who have been a victim of bullies. And Frazier can relate because she withdrew from school because the bullying became too bad while she was attending high school. Even LeeAnn Rimes recently talked about how she was picked on and how one girl brought a knife to school to try and stab her.
And with school just starting as parents and fellow students we should all be aware of the issue of bullying. According to Stand for the Silent over 160,000 students have opted to be home schooled because of bullying. What is even worse is according to Stand for the Silent, 25% of all students in High School have planned their own suicide because of bullying.
If your child is suffering from bullying please visit http://www.stopbullying.gov/ for more information on how to find your child some help. If your teen or you are thinking about suicide please contact Hope at 1-800-784-2433. Plus please remember that cyber bullying happens just as much if not more now with social networking being a huge part of our children's lives.
