Enamored with radio since high school, Ace is one of the few people you’ll meet who is doing what he has always wanted to do. A 20-plus year radio veteran, Ace worked all airshifts, was a Program Director, Assistant Program Director and Promotions Director before settling into his now 22 year partnership with TJ.
Ace married his wife Amanda on January 4, 2021 and is the father of two, daughter Payton (deceased) and son Cade, and loves both of them almost as much as he loves Louisiana State University and all LSU sports teams. A 1991 graduate of LSU with a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism, Ace still dreams of using his four years of eligibility on any LSU sports team.
In addition to his work with the show and the show’s charity, Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids, Ace has spent the last 20 years as the lead singer of Charity Case. This is the rock band that started as a radio bit but now exists for the sole purpose of raising money for Grin Kids. To date Charity Case has raised over $1.1 million for Ace & TJ’s Grin Kids and, in addition to over 250 of their own shows, has opened for such acts as Bon Jovi, Train, Bret Michaels of Poison and Jason Mraz to name a few.
