Born and raised in Ft. Thomas, Kentucky, Bud knew at a very young age that he was destined to entertain. He first started performing small “radio shows” with a karaoke machine and a tape player at age 8. When not spinning tunes he would also create his own talk shows and movies with a small black and white camera. But it wasn’t until he was a senior at Highlands High School that his voice went out to the masses. He called himself “Bluebird Bud” and did the morning announcements. Not one student or teacher ever slept through his colorful take on the (usually boring) school announcements.
After high school he set his sights on TV and co-anchored a Saturday morning TV news program known “The Point” with Local 12 and CinCW. But after having his taste of the TV world, he came back to his first dream…radio. He started as a promotions intern with Cincinnati’s Q102 in 2008. He later did part time on air work for both Q102 and B-105. Now, Bud is the Promotions Coordinator for both B-105 and The Wolf, as well as the on air talent for The Wolf, 7 p.m.-midnight on weekdays.
Besides holding those illustrious titles, he’s a chicken wing expert, co-owns the #1 Haunted Attraction in the Tri-State (The Dent Schoolhouse) and acts on the side for local movies and personal entertainment!
