By the age of six, Fitz—a Bowie, Texas, native—was already being heard on “Texoma” radio stations as he begged the local DJs to put him on the air. By his senior year of high school, the class president had turned the otherwise dry required school morning announcements into a must-hear two minutes of daily entertainment. At 17, he hounded the program director of KNIN in Wichita Falls, Texas, to give him a weekend slot. The station was sold, and Fitz was let go, but the new owner found a tape of Fitz’s weekend show and immediately put him back on the air. He recognized he had something more than just a kid in teenage Fitz and offered him the morning show. Fitz’s dream had come true, and The Fitz Radio Program was born.
His next big break in radio came when he made the jump to 93Q in Houston as the co-host for their top-rated morning show. From there he had stints in Oklahoma City and Dallas where, by the age of 23, he was the host of his own morning show—the youngest ever to accomplish that in a top 10 radio market. At 28, Fitz hosted his first syndicated country countdown show, “Fox All Access USA,” followed shortly afterward by the “Powered by Country Countdown,” and then he created his own national countdown show, “The Hit List with Fitz.” In addition to proudly hosting “Bob Kingsley’s Country Top 40 with Fitz,” Fitz is also currently the host of the top-rated, “Fitz in the Morning” show on KNUC, 98.9 The Bull, in Seattle, Washington.
Fitz currently lives in Seattle where he is married with five kids and a Boston Terrier . During his downtime, Fitz enjoys singing, spending time with his family and friends, coaching his little ones’ sports teams, watching UFC, and catching the latest episodes of his favorite Hallmark Channel shows as well as reruns of “The Golden Girls.”
