Since then, Nick has worked in Chadron, NE; Jacksonville, IL; Joliet and Aurora. Now, Nick is trying to balance working at The River, satisfying his love of craft beer and the areas best local eateries, and spending time with his wife and new son Max at their home in Plainfield. Nick is also the Production Director for The River."You can catch him on the air weekdays 10am-3pm and doing play-by-play for high school sports on our sister station 1340 WJOL.
