Upon finishing his tour, he returned to Miami where he attained a degree in Business from the University of Miami. After graduation, he began working in the family business, Storer Broadcasting. He was transferred to Los Angeles where he worked at KGBS and shortly thereafter to Atlanta where he worked at WAGA.
