Some Guy Named Allen

Monday-Friday 3pm-7pm


I am about as “local” as you get in the Norfolk Market. My family goes back almost 10 generations deep in Hampton Roads including my Great Grandfather who started the first radio station in Virginia. I love all things Virginia, and supporting as many local charities, businesses, bands, and events as possible. If Pizza or Donuts are involved you can count me in!

I am also privileged to be the Creative Director for the Sinclair Radio group, so be warned that I should not be left unattended with my own ideas! Okay.. writing this has made me hungry, so I am done now.
