Chris Monroe

My radio journey began back in April of 2004. I started as an intern for the night show of a local Top 40 station. After making my way up through the ranks there, long story short, I caught wind of a weekend opening for The Banana and jumped on it. Now, I am the Promotions Director for the greatest station in the Universe. I feel very lucky to be doing what I'm doing now. The Machine Shop has become a home away from home and I love being apart of every Banana Event out there. My two favorites are the Bad Golfers League and the Bad Bowlers League. It's a blast to be able to spend so much time and hang out with our kick ass listeners. Life is good, cheers aholes!

Three Officers Resign After Making Kid Eat His Pot [VIDEO]

This seems like a twisted scene from 'Super Troopers." After pulling over a 19-year-old and finding pot in the car, the officers allegedly make him eat it to avoid getting into more trouble and letting him off with just some traffic tickets. Of course, none of their body cams were on at the time.
