Pete is a lifelong resident of New Hampshire. Born and raised in Nashua, Pete's 1st sports memory was Bernie Carbo's dramatic pinch-hit 3 run home run in Game 6 of the 1975 World Series. He missed Carlton Fisk's even more famous extra innings game winner because he fell asleep. Who can blame him? He was only 5 years old at the time! After that moment, there was no turning back, Pete was hooked on sports.
His passion led him to broadcasting school and has since propelled him to a 20 year career in NH radio as a sportscaster and advertising salesman. Pete has worked at WNHQ in Milford/Peterborough. In 1995 he came to WGIR-AM and worked there for the next 10 years, winning multiple Golden Mike awards. He spent the next 5 years at Sports Radio WGAM before returning to WGIR in the summer of 2010.
He now lives in Goffstown with his wife Meagan and their 2 sons, Zack and Ryan.
