Sharing Montana’s Secrets: What’s Your Opinion?
Since I've moved to Montana, I've been trying to experience as much as I can as a way to fit in or relate to people who already live here. I figured that if I blog about something or talk about something on my show, I want it to be about topics that people from Montana are passionate about…
Best Little Donut Shop In Bozeman
This morning I had my first Granny's Donuts experience, and it was...absolutely delicious!
A little backstory: Dave from the XL morning show called me this morning and suggested that I bring in donuts for the blind date contestants. Since I'm the new guy, I decided it would probably be best…
Say a Prayer For Our Firefighters
Being a firefighter is a tough job. I don't know from experience, and in all honesty, can't say that I'm cut out for it. From running into a burning house to save a family pet to standing at the front line of a blazing wildfire, our firefighters are putting their lives on the lin…
Is this the Ultimate Montana Bachelor Pad?
I'm pretty sure I have the ultimate Montana bachelor pad. Everyone I've talked to tells me how lucky I was to find a place as quickly as I did in a rental market as competitive as Bozeman's. Just to clarify, I live about five miles east of Bozeman near Bear Canyon...
My First Trip To The Sureshot Lakes In Montana
Yesterday, I was able to get away for a day of fly fishing. We went to the Sureshot Lakes located northwest of Ennis. There are two lakes, Upper Sureshot, and Lower Sureshot.

Five Ways To Relax Around Bozeman
Since moving to Bozeman a little over a month ago, I've been working pretty much nonstop. I try to squeeze in a little "me" time to keep the stress from getting the best of me.
Here are five of my favorite things to do to relax around Bozeman
 
Get To Know Jesse James
First off, let me introduce myself. My name is Jesse. I was born and raised in Boise, Idaho and recently moved to Bozeman to host the afternoon show on XL Country. Since Dave & Amy are setting me up on a blind date for the Keith Urban concert next Thursday at the Brick Breeden Fieldhouse, I …
I’m A Hot Mess, And Here’s Why
I decided to go fishing tonight after work. Good idea, right? I live 100 yards from a pretty nice creek.
Well, on my first cast I hooked a pretty nice brown trout and landed it, so I decided to take a picture. I get my phone out, and the fish wiggles out of my hand...
My Attempt at Being a Cool Kid
It's everywhere you look. Everyone is talking about it. So, it was only a matter of time before I caved and downloaded Pokemon Go! on my phone. A lot of the college kids I met at the fair were talking about it and told me that "I had to try it" and how much fun it was...
A Very Rare Thing is About to Happen in My Family
I am one of three brothers. I am the youngest. A lot of people may call my parents crazy, but my brothers and I are six years apart. That's a 12-year span of having children! Plus, my mother raised three boys. She's a saint.
Anyway, that's not the point...
