Collecting a wide range of experience on his journey to the Y107 team, Carson brings a diverse and impressive range of talent and skill with him to the studio. Carson grew up in the West Suburbs of Chicago, and his radio journey all started his freshman year of college when his friend asked him to join him one weekend at the campus radio station, to help him “run CDs”. From that moment on, he was hooked! And after more than 19 total years in the radio industry, he isn't planning on going anywhere. Carson has been with Zimmer for over 5 years, and in that time has been awarded Air Talent of the Year by the Missouri Broadcasters Association in 2020.
If he's not hosting Middays on Y107, he's probably hanging out with his kids and/or his dog Toby, or binge-watching a new show with his wife, while trying out a new whiskey or microbrew. Carson is also an avid music fan and listens to a wide range of artists, including Muse, Ed Sheeran, Dierks Bentley, Cake, and Ray Lamontagne. Although his all-time favorite concert, and a personal favorite of his daughter as well, would have to be Taylor Swift. Some more of his favorite things include video games with his son, traveling, biking, and enjoying the great outdoors.
