Flip Putthoff started performing with Gridiron in 2004, the first year the show came back from a 14-year break. Flip is the outdoors reporter at the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, where he goes fishing in other people’s boats and writes about it. He is also on the newspaper’s photography staff. He has worked at the paper in its many forms since 1980, more than 35 years. “Don’t know if that’s a good thing or I need to seek professional help,” Flip says.
In addition to the acting, writing and singing, Flip also provides accompaniment on guitar for Gridiron songs that need some picking and grinning.
