Born in West Virginia, raised in Ohio, and a graduate of Sprayberry High School in Marietta, GA,

RIGGS has held music-related jobs for most of his life.  He worked at Turtle’s Records from 1983-1993, gathering a wealth of music & artist knowledge.  Upon graduating from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor’s Degree in English, RIGGS went to work full-time at WNGM Television in Athens. From then it was on, a life of beer, babes & rock-n-roll.  He thought playing rock on the radio would be a better gig than living in a teepee in the woods of Georgia, so to the beach he came, with nothing but a pair of shorts, flip-flops and a beat up Boombox with Metallica’s Greatest Hits.  He’s here on air weekdays from 3pm-7pm.  Call him, he gets lonely.  386-257-0324

Listen to Saturday Night Loud every Saturday from 9pm-Midnight.  He’ll crank it to “11” with stuff you’ll never hear during the week on the HOG.  From Buckcherry to Slipknot to Barry Manilow’s greatest hits!
