Mollenbeck was clearly not cut out to be a physician.
Around age 5, he got a toy doctor's kit, complete with a stethoscope. But instead of
using it as any normal child might, he used the stethoscope as a microphone and
headphones to announce things around the house. So it began.
While still in high school in small-town Iowa, he started working part time at the
local radio station (KLMJ). By the time he graduated from Biola University in
Southern California, he had worked or interned on both coasts, including WHO in Des
Moines, KOGO in San Diego and WTOP/WFED in Washington.
After three and a half years reporting for KNX in Los Angeles, Mollenbeck returned
to WTOP in May of 2010.
He loves travel, Spanish and neckties.
