Joey Pants was born in Lansing, raised in Webberville and has lived in Michigan his entire life. Growing up in Villbilly land, Joey learned the value of hard work, honesty and giving back to the community. He's had jobs as a fence builder, factory rat and telephone pole climber (Lineman). While working in cable, friends told Joey he sounded like he could be on the radio. In 1999, he attended Specs Howard School of Media Arts. After graduating in 2000, Joey was in an electric accident. He took 13 thousand volts of electricity and fell 25 feet from a pole. After a long recovery, he went back to Specs for the radio program and graduated in 2002 with "Most Entertaining and Most Outgoing" honors. He began as an intern at WMMQ in 2002 and filled in as morning show producer when Deb Hart began referring to him as Joey Pants.
