About Dennis "The Menace" Whiton
Dennis “The Menace” was born and raised in Evanston, Illinois. And grew up just blocks from Ryan Field at Northwestern University. He thanks his Mother (Eileen) and Father (Robert) for the values in life, and twisted sense of humor, and “although his parents have passed I know they are still watching over me”. Dennis is the baby of the family with two older sisters (Christine & Colleen) and one older brother (Steve) “Sadly Chrissie & Steve are with their parents in heaven now” My Sister Colleen is amazing as she has been the strength that has made it possible for me and my family to keep going after all of this. “She is my counter balance as she keeps me in check as needed”.
Dennis keeps an amazing schedule with his life when not on the air, like Jon his 1st priority is his family (Alexander, Sean and Rebecca) and they are his life as most of what he does is either for them or for their benefit. His biggest passions are, Radio, Announcing, golfing, sports, music, movies, and most importantly POKER !
