Big Sky's been in the Radio business since 1982 since he started as an overnight Announcer and Sales Rep in Polson Montana. He and his wife Lynn moved to Fond du lac in August of 1986 and at that time he went to work for KFIZ-AM as a Sales Rep and Sports Announcer. In 1996 Biolo moved across town to become the General Manager of Sunny 97. After that, in 1998 Sky assisted in building and developing the all New Great 98. He's been working here since!
How'd he get that nickname?
On Biolo's first day of work at KFIZ when he arrived from Montana to Fond du lac his now longtime friend and co-worker Mike "Silk" Casper greeted him at the front door and said,"Welcome to Fond du lac Mr. Big Sky Montana Biolo" Ever since then the name stuck. By the way...Gerald "Whitey" Towle of Fond du lac gave Silk his nickname!
