Joe is a 10 year radio veteran. He recently was the Program Director for KQCM in 29 Palms Ca. He co-hosted ï¿½The Big Sexy Sports Spectacularï¿½ or ï¿½B Triple Sï¿½ on Team 1010 KXPS in Palm Springs before taking the position at KQ92. Joe has overcome many difficult obstacles in his life to become a semi-successful broadcaster.
Born in Milwaukee Wisconsin to a single mother, he was raised by his grandparents, Joe and Carol Arrigo and his mom, Cathy. They moved to Upland Ca. in 1981 where Joe grew up and enjoyed a life filled with love, happiness, music, culture and sports, but Joeï¿½s true passion is the Packers.
Joeï¿½s love for the Packers started in 1980 in Milwaukee, while watching a Packers Bears game with his uncle, he was immediately entranced with football and that began his infatuation, well, ok, OBSESSION with the Packers. Joe spent hours watching football (when not playing) and analized everything. It became almost comical how Joe could and would hold a conversation with ANY GROWN PERSON and throw out stat after stat, example after example and prove them wrong, AT THE AGE OF 8!
Joe really started to focus on the NFL draft in 1988, on his 11th birthday (April 18th), when he correctly picked the Packers selection (7th overall) of then South Carolina WR Sterling Sharpe after watching a variety of highlight films. The following year (1989) he correctly picked the first 15 players IN ORDER. At 12 years old! During that time, the NFL draft was held on Sundays, and Joe would ï¿½get sickï¿½ and miss school Monday so he could continue to dissect and chart the draft.
Joe, would spend long hours breaking down and watching film on various players in hopes the Packers would draft them, but he quickly figured out that would be more challenging to try and breakdown each teams needs. The running joke amongst Joeï¿½s friends (started by Joe Pacheco) is that ï¿½Joe is ESPN draft guru Mel Kiper Jr.ï¿½s evil step-nephewï¿½. Joe, who has been known to call Kiper ï¿½Uncle Melï¿½, credits Kiper for being one of the first people that he looked up to, along with Gil Brandt.
Now married with 3 children, Joe continues to break down film, chart players and dissect the NFL draft as well as follow his passion (sports).
Joe has also appeared on various sports stations nationwide, but is frequently heard on
ESPN 1430 in Fresno Ca. as a guest draft analyst, as well as Southern California Correspondent.
Joeï¿½s love for sports is only exceeded by his love for family and friends.
He would like to also say that he thanks the lord everyday that he has been blessed with his
grandparents, Joe and Carol Arrigo (who are the 2 biggest influences in his
life), his mom and his wife, kids, family and friends. He feels that without any of them, no matter what success he has, it would be meaningless and empty without them.
God Bless and thank you for taking the time out to read my blog,
