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, Arkansas and three stations in southern California. 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. 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” on the Oklahoma News Network. He also works with the Pacific Coast League and the Oklahoma City Dodgers minor league baseball team in a behind-the-scenes role.

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.

He also finds it odd to write in third person.
