Ricky Burns

Michigan born Michigan raised, I literally didn't leave this state for over 6 years but I was ok with that because I love it here so much. I first wanted to get into radio when I was 17 and realized I was too dumb to go to college. Radio is pretty much my life, I have been working in this industry for 9 years now and I have loved every second of it. Before getting into entertainment I had every job under the sun, I did janitorial work, telemarketing, I even was a pizza shop manager. I got my first job in radio doing promotions, at the same time I was the night show intern on WDZH (98.7 Amp Radio) in Detroit. That led me to move 45 minutes north to Flint where I hosted the Night show for 3 years on WRCL (Club 93.7). After that it was back to Detroit, I was the music director and midday host of both WJLB (97.9) and WMXD (Mix 92.3). And now I have moved to the Capital city to be the Program Director and afternoon host on Power 96.5.
