Beanie is "Offensive Minded" weekdays from 3 to 6 p.m. on The Game 730 AM. Known for his fiery passion and blunt analysis, Beanie started on air at The Game 730 AM in 2014. Before that, he spent several years as a reporter for MLive Media Group, covering Michigan State and a wide variety of other beats. A shareholder of the Green Bay Packers, Beanie spends each fall foolishly talking himself into believing that Aaron Rodgers will actually win a second NFC title game and Super Bowl. In the summer, you can find Beanie aboard his tritoon boat, affectionately named "The Flying Welshman." Beanie is an alumnus of MSU, class of 2010. He also holds an MBA from the University of Kansas, although, unlike many Jayhawks (allegedly), he was not compensated by Adidas for his matriculation at KU.
