JC was born and raised in Bucks County Pennsylvania… just 30 minutes north of Philadelphia.  He lived a regular childhood… hooked on Nintendo games, riding ATV’s, getting impaled by a lawn darts and dreaming of one day playing football for the Dallas Cowboys.   Yes, JC grew up in Philadelphia, home of the Philadelphia Eagles, rooting for the Dallas Cowboys (this explains a lot).   While attending CB East HS JC got his chance to show the world his amazing his football skills. He played three years of high school ball and at the end of his HS football career he averaged 35 yards a catch!  VERY IMPRESSIVE.  Sadly he only had two catches, one for 5 yards and the second was a 65 yard Hail Mary (he made a spectacular catch with nothing but end zone in front of him…. he was so filled with excitement that his knees buckled underneath him and  was down at the five yard line).  With no college football offers on the table JC decided to head west and attend UNLV.

It was during his time at UNLV that he developed the radio bug.  JC’s first on-air gig was working at KUNV 91.5 hosting JAZZ PROGRESSIONS.  In case you are wondering JC knew nothing about JAZZ music.   This made hosting a Jazz show a tad bit difficult.  JC then found himself launching his own radio show called “THE WRESTLING FORUM” on AM 1230.   For three minutes a week he talked about something he is very  passionate about it…. PRO WRESTLING!

In the weird world of radio JC was PAYING the station $75 a week to lease air time for his WWE talk show…..   So in 1997 upon graduating from UNLV he went looking for a job in radio that PAID HIM.  In August 1997  he landed a job in the promotions department at Mix 94.1. In 1998 he moved over to producing, then onto Executive Producing.   In 2001 he moved to Washington DC to become the Executive Producer for Billy Bush (yes the Billy Bush you see on Access Hollywood).  After spending 5 years in our nation’s capital JC returned to Las Vegas and Mix 94.1 where he continued his Executive Producing duties and eventually evolving into On-Air Executive Producer and now Co-Host of “Mercedes in the Morning.”
