Joel hosts and produces local public affairs on-air programming on Closer Look for 30+ K-LOVE and Air1 radio stations in Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Missouri and Arkansas. In the past, he’s also been heard on stations in 20+ other states.

Prior to joining K-LOVE and Air1 in 2010, Joel worked for 12 years at radio stations in Kansas City and Oklahoma City.

He’s also a sportswriter and broadcaster. Joel has covered high school, small college and minor league sports since the mid-1990s for a handful of radio stations and newspapers in Oklahoma and Indiana.

Currently, he does some play-by-play for Oklahoma City University baseball and co-hosts a statewide high school football scoreboard show “Friday Night Finals” and a college sports preview show “Gameday Saturday” on the Oklahoma News Network.

Joel also works with the Pacific Coast League and the Oklahoma City Dodgers minor league baseball team in a behind-the-scenes role.

He also finds it odd to write in third person.
