People Of WFIT
I’m a third-generation Miamian whose “day job” is management consulting and communications for large scientific research programs run by federal agencies in Washington, DC. I’ve lived on the Space Coast since 1989 and commute a few days a month to my office in DC. I have a wide range of interests, and the show feeds my habit. But the really great thing about hosting the show has been the huge number of interesting people I’ve been able to meet from all walks of life. I didn’t think about that, going in, but it has turned out to be the most rewarding part of the job!
Born: Miami, FL

American Variety Radio™ first aired as a weekly talk show with host Court Lewis on Melbourne, Florida’s WMEL-AM920 in February 2004. After more than 3 years on the AM airwaves across Central Florida, the show joined the program lineup of WFIT-FM, at the Florida Institute of Technology. Building on that base, American Variety has expanded to several other Public Radio stations around Florida and the Southeast U.S.
