Hello fellow Leopards!
My name is Brian Price, and I graduated from the hallowed halls of Liberty High School in 1984, when Leopard students were still warmed by coal fires and glowed with the shimmer of asbestos.
After graduating from LHS, I made the monumental and life-changing decision to live at my parent’s house and study at YSU. Actually, it WAS monumental and life changing. Because YSU is where I met my wife, Diane (Arby’s at Kilcawley Center – obviously magical) and, in my sophomore year, got my first job in what would become my lifelong profession; radio. Jane Reed, my Public Relations professor, told me about a copy intern position that had opened up at WHOT-AM/FM – at the time. THE biggest radio station in town.
Turns out that WHOT was a tiny place full of some fantastic, even legendary people like AC McCullough, Thomas John, Jerry Starr, Mark French and Bob Popa. Thus began my lifelong love of radio, which led to the other love of my work life, DJing.
I now own my own Entertainment and Events company and hold down the afternoon drive duties on Mix 98.9 in Youngstown. My wife of 29 (in March 2019) years and I have lived in Boardman since 1994, and welcomed our daughter, Emily in 1995. She just graduated from YSU and is pursuing a Master’s Degree in Social Work.
I’m still in touch with my friends, Rich Armstrong, Sean Ryan, Jim Price, Drew Riter, Brian Gereb, and many of my other LHS Classmates. And it’s always great to run into old school friends around town.
But enough about me. What’s up with you? I hope you’ll share your life’s adventure here with all of us, too.
