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.
We enjoyed dinner at Triton again. I was SURE this was the pirate night theme I had read about in the online info so I made sure to buy a sword, hook hand and eye patch in Ketchikan today. Problem: there was no pirate night on this cruise. I found this out from our server, Pui at dinner. I pulled out my pirate gear, none the less, and decided to make my own pirate night. I am hard pressed to tell you how much this whole situation amused Jay and Chelsea.
After dinner, we went to Shutter to look at the RIDICULOUS pose that we had done the night before where Chelsea and I have our hands on either side of Jay’s face and I’m looking off in the distance. We decided not to purchase the picture, but my camera accidentally went off and I caught this glimpse of our photo (below). Jay found out about my accidental picture afterward and gave me the eyeballs to let me know that accident better not happen again.
We continued our journey to Promenade Lounge where a Neil Diamond tribute was going on. We stuck around until we had had all the tribute we could handle then called it a night.
