PURE MICHIGAN! I'm so glad to be back in my home state! I started out of CK105 in Flint and, man, was I AWFUL. From there I worked at 92.1 The Edge in East Lansing and Wings 103.1 in Lapeer. My first Detroit gig was Z-Rock followed by 102.7 The Bear with Ted Nugent: talk about fun! Ted was hilarious and so great to fight with in the studio. When Ted took his show to his house and out of Detroit, things got a little less lively, so I took a job at WMMR in Philadelphia.
In Philly, I met my husband and we had our daughter, Mackenzie. I left WMMR and went to work part-time for WYSP while being home with our daughter. When Mackenzie turned four, we moved to Washington DC and I worked for DC101... also a riot. Washington DC is beautiful! There is nothing like the Cherry Blossom festival: simply amazing. We checked out museums and took ghost tours: the city is incredible.
A few years later, I started working for WRNR in Annapolis. I love the Annapolis vibe and the amazing people that populate Maryland's capitol. While with WRNR, my husband and I had our son, Jake, and I worked from home as WRNR's Digital Content Manager.
If I may tell you what you already know, Jay Towers is good people. When I found out I was going to be Jay's co-host, I literally screamed like I'd won the lottery. This is the funnest "job" I have ever had. Jay is a BLAST and he's also genuine, decent, a hard worker and also family oriented.... all values I hold in the highest respect... just please, don't tell him I said that... I like to keep him guessing.
WAH-LAH… after some customs stuff and getting our picture taken with Goofy, we boarded the Disney Wonder. When you come on the ship, they announce your arrival. I told them we were, “Jay Towers,” and they announced “THE JAY TOWERS FAMILY” on the microphone. People cheered and Jay wanted to kill me. It was AWESOME.
We took some pictures from the hotel pool floor. It was an amazing view. Jay had scoped it out earlier when he went to the gym at the hotel. I did not work out at the hotel. I brought seven pairs of shoes and NONE of them are suitable for exercise. YAY ME! Good thing people don’t gain weight on cruises.
Chelsea and I have rooms next to each other. Jay is on the opposite side of the ship. We kept asking him his room number until he finally coughed it up. Chelsea and I are referring to Jay’s room as “the secret room.” When we finally saw Jay’s room, Chelsea made fun of Jay’s room view because it was facing the buildings and not the ocean. Jay reminded Chelsea that the ship would be moving shortly and it wouldn’t matter. Jay and I then proceeded to make fun of Chelsea… at length. Our rooms are AWESOME! We even got a cheese platter and champagne, which made us very happy.
