Big Budah is the features reporter for Fox 13's Good Day Utah and Live at Eleven. Prior to joining Fox 13, he worked in local radio and has appeared in a number of feature films.

He describes himself as a "fat guy with a mic and he'll do almost anything to make someone smile.

Budah and his wife are the proud parents of five children. He has learned that if his family laughs at his antics, so will anyone else.

Off-camera, he is the same guy you see during his live shots on Fox 13. And if you can't tell, he loves life as much as he loves his job.

Budah loves food and sports. He spends his spare time coaching his kid's sports teams. Before Budah joined the FOX13 Good Day Utah team, viewers will remember him from his radio career in Salt Lake City. He has been on Clear Channel's KISN 97 as well as Millcreek's Power 107.9 and U92.

Prior to his radio career in Salt Lake, Budah was also doing radio in northern California.

    Big Budah’s blog: Basketball, Movember, and lump-related lab results

    What a busy week!! I had work, basketball practice, choir practice, Pioneer Trek prep… CALGON TAKE ME AWAY(sigh). As busy as this past week was, it was also extremely rewarding. And the best part? I had energy and enthusiasm to spare. It is day 20 of Movember, and I am still going strong. And I had some good news this week as well: The results from the lab on the lump that was removed from the back of my head […]

    Big Budah’s blog: Coaching basketball and joining a choir

    This week was a good week. I am still awaiting the test results from the lab on the lump that was removed from the back of my head. It was also a busy week. I am coaching the girl’s high school basketball team, which is mainly the freshmen team but I am helping with the older girls too. I am happy to start right away with basketball now that football is over, as it will keep me active and busy–which […]

    Big Budah’s blog: Going under the knife to remove a bump

    Well let’s just call this week what it really was for me: a bad head day! I had surgery at the Utah Surgical Center in West Valley on Monday morning. I was nervous, and I’ll be honest a little scared–even though Dr. Hollingsed gave me some comforting words when he said that cancerous lumps or bumps are not usually formed where my lump was located. I literally felt like I blinked once and it was over, though it was a […]

    Big Budah’s blog: A bump at the base of my skull

    What a busy week with football playoffs beginning! And by the way, I want to give a big shout out to the U of U for handling USC and for the awesome tour they gave the Alta PeeWee A squad–thanks Coach Whitt! I am finding myself busier than ever and am surprised that I have enough energy. I am having to cram in a Turbo Jam 20 minute Cardio Blast to make sure I get some exercise in. When I […]

    Big Budah’s blog: Brought low by a bowl of cereal

    My fingers are healing nicely but slowly. They should be done in another week or two, so I am looking forward to being back to normal. I tried to have a bowl of cereal this week and was quickly reduced to my knees because I couldn’t swallow the solid cereal with the milk. I was in a lot of pain, but that was soon alleviated with some regurgitation. It was a pain unlike any other I have felt before, and […]

    Big Budah’s blog: Globetrotters and a glimpse into my future

      There is not a lot to report this week. I did have some difficulty with some Top Ramen noodles I tried to eat one afternoon when I came home from work. I am still having some pain in my fingers but hope they will subside soon in the coming week. I went to my first high school football game this week, and it was Jordan vs Brighton. What a fun game! The final score was 76-78 Brighton. I had […]

    Big Budah’s blog: A surgery with ten targets

    I had surgery on all of my fingers on both hands to remove my fingernails due to health conditions. I had been living with pain in my hands for the past two years and am hoping the surgery will give me some relief. Needless to say, I have been unable to work out as I am having difficulty even just dressing myself. On top of that, I have been on a regimen of pain medication and antibiotics. I can’t wait […]

    Big Budah’s blog: Fitting in at the barbershop

    I had a good week of working out. I have been on a good diet and there have been no surprises. Most of all, I still feel good. One of the things that I was told about when undergoing a drastic weight loss would be that I could possibly be depressed or have a reverse psychology to not eating normal or plentiful amounts of food. I haven’t experienced any of those feelings, nor have I ever felt, as of yet, […]

    Big Budah’s blog: Clowning around at the circus and basketball with the Jazz

    Before talking about my first real test as far as my overall fitness, I have to say I had a blast hanging out with the Clown Alley at the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. I got interact with some fun folks and get a taste of what they do daily. My first real physical test since my #LosingForLife journey began was Wednesday afternoon during the Media Utah Jazz practice and scrimmage. I joined sports writers and reporters from […]
