John enlisted in the United States Air Force in 1977 as an announcer for the American Forces Radio Service, stationed in Zaragoza, Spain. After separating from the Air Force, John completed his B.A. at Freed-Hardeman while working as the campus radio station and recording services manager. He became News Director for a small station in Fulton, Kentucky, later moving to Murray, Kentucky as a newsman and radio talk show co-host.
He became an Air Force officer (space and missile operations) in 1986, but still found time to do occasional training and educational videos and commercial voiceover work.

There, he frequently serves as a narrator for military promotion and retirement ceremonies, and local radio and television commercials.
