Fitz is a long, tall, native TEXAN. He is married with FIVE kids, and a Boston Terrier named Susie Lou Snuffleupagus. Fitz brings a unique feminine perspective to the show because he is truly a 6’7” 245 pound baby! You might think he is an NFL linebacker but truly, he is a big softie.
Listening to Fitz is not like anything else you’ve ever heard or experienced. Fitz has been described as someone with a huge heart who lives his life on the radio. His conversations and stories range from comical to profoundly honest. Some have described Fitz’s show as a radio hybrid of “The Tonight Show” and “Saturday Night Live” with parody songs and comedy bits. With the cast’s individual personalities and lively discussions on every-day subjects, the show creates a powerful emotional bond with its audience and covers topics that moms and daughters alike want to hear. It’s a show that mom can listen to in the car with the kids and know the show will never embarrass her.
Often described as an “emotional roller coaster,” Fitz is renowned for being completely irreverent and hilarious one moment, then profoundly touching the next. Fitz’s show is a family-friendly, character-based reality show. Every morning, Fitz and the gang reveal everything about their lives.
Fitz says, “Everyday is a Friday! I describe it as High School with a paycheck!” It’s not just a radio show…it’s entertainment that you become a part of. After hearing Fitz once, you’ll be hooked.
Fitz grew up as the middle child in the small, North Texas, country town of Bowie. Fitz’s mother, a theater arts teacher, always said he would be the President of the United States or in the state penitentiary. Thankfully, he put his energy in the right direction and ended up somewhere right in the middle, choosing a career in radio. From the young age of six, Fitz could be heard on the airwaves around Texoma, calling radio stations and begging the DJs to put him on the air. Years later, as president of his Senior class, Fitz was responsible for school announcements every morning. Even then he couldn’t resist making his daily two minutes on the intercom as entertaining as possible for all who listened. “I went to my principal one day and told him that I would like to contribute some entertainment during the announcements. I begged him to let me do the daily announcements and the next thing y’know, I had 2 minutes every morning to start people’s day with a laugh.” And the rest, as they say, is history.
The FITZ Radio Program was born!
Fitz was always striving for the next best thing, so he made a demo tape and sent it off to a station called 93Q in Houston, TX. They offered Fitz the co-host position for their top-rated morning show. From there, he had stints and TOP RATED shows in Oklahoma City, OK, and Dallas, TX, where at the age of 23, he was the host of his own morning show and the youngest ever to accomplish that in a TOP TEN radio market.
