Doug on Doug:
I was born in California, in Newport Beach. I grew up in the SF Bay area, in Northern California. One big year in my life was my senior year of High School. I spent that year in Minden, Germany as an exchange student. (Class of '85).
I've been in radio since 1988, with many stations including KSOL (where I was Doug EE Fresh the traffic rapper) 6 years as "Jungle Doug" on KRTY/Country in San Jose, and 3 years on the syndicated "Doug & Connie / Doug & Karla" morning show. I also worked with our Christian music channels on XM Satellite Radio.
My favorite holiday movie is "Young Frankenstein". (Honestly!) Thatâ€™s what my mom and I use to watch each Christmas. "What hump?"
I actually met my wife Sheryl through KRTY (although she'll tell you that she was not a "groupie"). She just wanted to see the "face behind the voice" .. and after she got the scary part over, we got married. (There is really a lot more to it but we'll share that for the next marriage retreat.) Sheryl is truly the back bone of the family â€“ because she does so much behind the scenes - I can try to go to bed each night at 8. (That 3am wake up call comes much too early). My wife is also sharing her story in her book â€œA Scarlet Cord of Hope â€“ My Journey through Guilt, Shame and Fear to Hopeâ€. Her website is www.SherylGriffin.com
My oldest daughter - Lauren is married to a great Godly man â€“ Stephen, and my son â€“ Garic â€œBaby Manâ€ Griffin is the only non-Californian in the family â€“ He was born in Franklin TN in 1998.
My favorite verse is Phil. 4:6-7 which in the "Message" reads "Donâ€™t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of Godâ€™s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. Itâ€™s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life."
