Meet the Morning Show

denny-dittyI’ve spent my life in the country, Country radio that is. For 30 years I’ve been in the business and spent the last 27 years at award winning WFMS radio in Indianapolis, Indiana hosting the morning show.

My love for Glen Campbell’s music inspired me to start playing both Bluegrass and Country Music at the age of 9. In college my passion for music lead me to play in several bands, while playing in those bands, I got his start in radio at a station in Danville, Indiana, In the mid 80’s, I played with a young aspiring fiddle player named Alison Krauss and traveled in a band with her while working full time at the station in Danville.

In 1986, I got my first break in country radio when I was added to the morning show line up and also became Program Director of WIRE in Indianapolis, the station I grew up listening to. In 1988, I began my career here at country music giant WFMS and have called WFMS my home for the past 28 years.
One of the big thrills of my career was in 2014 when I was honored to be inducted into the Country Radio Hall of Fame.

Over the years, I’ve been involved with many charity organizations, but my love for animals leads me to spend time helping the Humane Society of Indianapolis.

I’m blessed to be able to work with my wife each morning, 30 year WFMS veteran Mimi Pearce and my greatest thrill is spending time with my family.
