THE DRIVE AT 5 ON CLASSIC HITS 106.3
Simpson was born and raised in Sioux City, Iowa. After turning his life around in 1988, he finally went on to further his education, graduating from Briar Cliff University in 1996. A very non-traditional student, he left BCU with bachelor's degrees in Mass Communication, and Speech and Theatre. He was involved in many technical aspects of the Briar Cliff Theatre along with the campus television and radio stations, and newspaper. Simpson was Briar Cliff's campus radio station manager for more than a year.
Since moving to Yankton to be with his fiancée in September of 2013, he has begun to settle in and adjust to life outside of Sioux City. No stranger to Yankton, Simpson visited the fair city many times in the two years prior to moving here, spending time with his fiancée when possible.
Simpson happened across the position with Classic Hits 106.3 one morning while listening to the Classic Morning Show with Randy Hammer. "I called in one morning and chatted with him, and he asked where I was from, where I was working,” says Simpson. “I told him that I was new to town and looking for employment, unless he knew of a radio station that was looking to hire someone. The rest — so far — is history."
Prior to working at Classic Hits 106.3, Simpson was employed with FedEx Office as a shipping specialist, KMEG TV-14 as a master control operator/video switcher, and KWIT FM 90 as a board operator/announcer ... just to name a few. Simpson enjoys a strong cup of coffee, time spent with his fiancée, family and friends, mowing the lawn, riding his motorcycle, and exploring the bike trails of Yankton when possible… but mostly the coffee.
