Joining Baraga Radio Network in September of 2014, Nick is a graduate of Madonna University, where he studied theology, philosophy, and broadcasting arts along with his major (Psychology) and minor (English).  While at Madonna, Nick managed its on-line radio station, co-taught college-level radio classes, and sportscasted for the University of Michigan-Dearborn.  He also had the great privilege of producing The Christ & Culture Forum, a weekly radio program hosted by Dr. Monica Migliorino Miller, Associate Professor of Religious Studies at Madonna University and Director of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society.  Raised in Metro Detroit and vacationing in East Tawas throughout his childhood, Nick moved to the Petoskey area when his wife, Maria, accepted the position of Principal at St. Michael Academy.  They have one daughter, Anne Marie, and look forward to however many children God might send them.  Nick’s favorite Baraga radio shows are The Cross Walk with Dcn. Kevin Endres (M & F at Noon) and  The Doctor Is In with Dr. Ray Guarendi (M-F at 1 pm).
