All About Scott Stine:
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 WTAC, CKLW, WKNX, WHNN and WTRX growing up. I remember sitting in the living room watching TV and at the same time, have ear plugs connected to a radio. Sounds silly, but I just loved listening to radio. Any kind of radio.
Odd jobs before radio: garbage man (my Dad owned a sanitation route), worked on a farm baling hay and straw, and I pulled chickens one summer (if you have ever done that job, you know how much fun that 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 guy from 1979-81 at WKYO/WIDL in Caro. Worked in the horrible state of Ohio for about a year. Came back to Michigan and worked in Ionia for a few years. In August 1985 was hired at WHNN Sunny 96 in Saginaw (thank you to Ken Carson and the great Dan Stewart!) I was thrilled to join the station that once rocked Mid-Michigan and that I grew up listening to. We were an adult contemporary station when I joined. Then we flipped to Oldies. Now we have returned to Adult Contemporary.
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!” Haha. Actually, I still have family there and it was a great small town to grow up in. Go Red Hawks!
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!
Favorite music: Chicago, REO Speedwagon, Doobie Brothers, anything from Motown and, my guilty pleasure, I like some of the bubblegum pop music of the late 60’s and early 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 Sports teams: The Tigers and Wings! For college, I always cheer on MSU and U of M! But when they play each other, I lean Green & White.
Favorite foods: Home made pizza! And I’ve never met a salad bar I didn’t like.
Favorite TV Shows: This Old House….so I find out how much I DON’T know about fixing things. And lovin’ the Food Network these days…I like to eat I guess.
