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.
Dinner that night was at Disney’s Palate. The room changes from black and white to color throughout dinner, which is pretty cool. Then Wizard Mickey appeared and let a show with our servers. We were pretty wiped and decided to head back to our rooms. I thought we should take naps and meet up for 80’s Trivia at 10:30pm. Jay said he would DESTROY me and I told him to bring it. Jay said if he “naps” he won’t wake up. I challenged him to an 80’s trivia bet, but Jay said, “That would have worked in high school, but not now.” We all went to bed at 7:30pm… not even kidding. As Chelsea and I entered our staterooms, a kindly looking grandmotherly lady heard us saying we were going to bed. She stood there in disbelief saying, “But I haven’t even had dinner yet… you’re going to bed?” I said, “It’s a sin isn’t it?” I closed the door, went to bed… at 7:30pm. We’re living on the edge, y’all.
SIDE NOTE: Please enjoy Jay's ridiculously good photo of the sun at Skagway.
