Fitz has 3 kids, a Boston Terrier named Susie Lou Snuffoluffogus and a really hot wife who is far too beautiful for him, is with him out of pity and is trying to find a way out. Fitz brings a unique feminine perspective to the show because he is truly a 6’7” 245 pound baby! You might think he is an NFL linebacker but truly, he is an overgrown pansy. Fitz lives for reality TV. Be glad you can just laugh at him and that you don’t have to live with him.
Listening to Fitz is not like anything else you’ve ever heard or experienced. Fitz has been described as someone with a huge heart who lives his life on the radio. His conversations and stories range from comical to profoundly honest. Some have described Fitz’s show as a radio hybrid of “The Tonight Show” and “Saturday Night Live” with parody songs and comedy bits. Others have described his show as Ellen meets Oprah. Fitz describes it as High School with a paycheck! It’s not just a radio show…its entertainment that you become a part of. After hearing Fitz once, you’ll be hooked.
Fitz grew up as the middle child in the small, North Texas, country town of Bowie. Fitz’s mother, a theater arts teacher, always said he would be the President of the United States or in the state penitentiary. Thankfully, he put his energy in the right direction and ended up somewhere right in the middle, choosing a career in radio.
In January 2011, Fitz was chosen from thousands of radio hosts throughout the nation to fill in for Regis on Live with Regis and Kelly where he impressed producers and ABC executives with his interview of Sir Anthony Hopkins and other segments on the show. He is known as the only person ever to “High-Five” Sir Anthony Hopkins during an interview. Kelly Ripa almost poisoned Fitz by putting lavender oil in his mouth while giving him a facial. Fitz survived and it made for great television. Elsewhere on the small screen, Fitz was also the host of the nationally syndicated show “Fitz on Fox All access USA” During Fitz’s downtime, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends, singing and watching “Dog the Bounty Hunter”, reruns of “The Golden Girls” and “Wonder Years” and “My Cat from Hell”. Remember… FITZ HAPPENS!
