Born in Southern Illinois, Mehochko admits he didn’t follow much college football in his formative years. He would eventually begin his radio career in the Nebraska panhandle.
It was there that he met loyal Husker fans who carried the same passion for the University of Nebraska that he had for his favorite NFL team, the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Could it be? Had a young Greg Mehochko found a team for which he could carry the same enthusiasm on Saturdays as he had on Sundays for the Steelers?
In a word, yes.
Mehochko has since moved on from Nebraska, working in radio in both Missouri and his native Illinois.
He hopes that his radio career eventually returns him to “The Good Life,” but will continue to spread the word of Husker athletics wherever he is.
