Scott Stine background:
Born Cass City, Michigan June 13, 1963
I always knew I'd be in radio. At age 8, I remember picking up a Wolfman Jack countdown show out of Canada. After that I was hooked! Listened to WHNN, WTAC, CKLW, WKNX and WTRX growing up. Funny thing is, I remember listening to Johnny Burke on WTRX when I was a junior in high school. Man, that must make him really old!
Odd jobs before radio: garbage man (my Dad owned a sanitation route) and I pulled chickens one summer (if you own chickens you know how much fun this job was!) Thankfully, I got into radio!
I enrolled in the Specs Howard School of Broadcast Arts in Southfield, MI. in Nov. 1981.
First radio gig: part-time weekend pee-on at WKYO/WIDL in the huge metropolis of Caro. Small stations, but learned a bunch. In August 1985 was hired at WHNN Sunny 96 in Saginaw, MI. I was thrilled to join the station that once rocked Mid-Michigan. Unfortunately, when I came aboard, we were playing music by Barry Manilow and the Carpenters... Not two of my favorites! Thank goodness we flipped formats and started playing the great classics in the Fall of 1990 (remember our "Louie Louie-a-thon?") Life has been good since then!
Hometown: Cass City, Mi. "Astronaut Brewster Shaw is also from Cass City. He got a salute on a billboard heading into town. What did I get? A friendly wave goodbye as I left town!" Actually, I still have family there and it was a great small town to grow up in.
Birthday: June 13
Education: Graduated from Cass City High School. Class of 1981. Go Red Hawks!
Marital/family status: married to the best darn woman ever….her name is Karen. We have 2 incredible girls….Shelby and Haley. Truly the joys of my life! Oh, and I can't forget about our dog, Zoey!
Favorite classic artists: Beatles, Chicago, Doobie Brothers, anything from Motown and, my guilty pleasure, I like some of the bubblegum music of the late 60's and 70's (i.e. The Archies, The Sweet, Andy Kim)
Hobbies: Watching everything NASCAR. Plus, just hanging out with my family. Isn't that what it's all about?
Favorite Pro teams: The DETROIT TIGERS.
Favorite foods: Chinese…..and I love the salad bar at Ruby Tuesday's!
Favorite TV Shows: Deadliest Catch is my current favorite! American Idol is always a hit with me and my family as well! And "Criminal Minds" on CBS is my favorite police drama right now.
