A Sucker For A Good Life Story

Born at Wake Med on New Bern Avenue in Raleigh, Patrick has been a Triangle native from his earliest moments. Raised in Wilson to educator parents, he attended Beddingfield High School then East Carolina University, graduating with a degree in Communications. Originally attending ECU to become a high school English teacher, his stint on college radio station “Zombie FM” WZMB 91.3 convinced him to chase his tightly held dream of being on Triangle radio.


After graduation he dove right in- first as an intern then Midday DJ at Greenville/New Bern/Jacksonville station “New Rock 99X” WXNR. Patrick’s dream of being on the Triangle’s airwaves was realized in early 2005 when became the Midday host of “96rock”, our very own WBBB! After briefly leaving radio in 2008, he jumped back onto the Triangle airwaves – first with sports station 99.9 The Fan before moving over to MIX 101.5.

In early 2019 Patrick realized it was time to come home, and excitedly rejoined the Curtis Media Group family as Midday host for the all new STAR 92.9!!

Patrick is a true family man who wears his heart on his sleeve and is a sucker for a good life story.  A 2013 chance encounter changed his life forever though, as he fell head over heels in love… in 2015 they were married and in August of 2018 they welcomed their first child, a daughter. Patrick, wife Angela, and daughter Finley Marie live in Raleigh with their two pups – Baloo and Lady – enjoying all that the area has to offer!
