All the ways I contribute to WTIP...
the creator and voice of Wildersmith on the Gunflint, as well as volunteer for various outreach events in the summer. 

Why I volunteer with WTIP...
I'm pleased to be a member of the broadcast team at WTIP.  I enjoy working with the staff, and am glad to have the opportunity to share my weekly territorial happenings on the radio.

Fun facts...
You may be surprised to learn that in his 'other life' (as a high school athletic administrator), Fred was twice named 'Iowa Athletic Director of the Year', and twice a 'National Athletic Administrator of the Year' runner-up. He continues to serve high school athletics by being a referee of field events for the Drake Relays in Des Moines.  When asked to share some of his 'favorites', Fred offers the following, "comfort food and a number of some not too contemporary vocalists."
