Casey “Catnip” grew up in Lake Jackson, TX and attended Brazoswood high school where he was involved in marching band, soccer, church and played in several bands around town. After coming to Texas A&M in the fall of 2010, he began working at 12th Man Productions where he gained incredible production experience, and made many lifelong friends. After graduating from Texas A&M in 2014, with a B.A. in Telecommunications & a Minor in French he accepted a job as the morning show technical producer and co-host for 94.5 The Buzz at iHeart Media in Houston. After seeing that the job would not fit his long term goals he decided to pursue opportunities elsewhere which led him to Candy 95 and Bryan Broadcasting. After only a few days he knew that he had made a great choice and cannot wait to continue his adventure with everyone at this company.

Q: Why did you get into the radio industry?
A: The thing I’m most passionate about is people. Radio gives me the opportunity not only entertain, but to volunteer and be involved in the community.

A: I like cats and they like me, but to be honest I’m a huge dog person.
Q: Are you available for live remotes in BCS?
A: Absolutely! I love interacting with people. Remotes allow me to meet people face to face instead of over the phone or text.
Q: If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?
A: I would want to shoot skittles out of my hands. That way everyone could taste the rainbow.
Q: Favorite local B/CS restaurant?
A: Probably Blackwater Draw, they have a great menu and a great porch. But I have to give an honorable mention to Mugwalls!
