I am originally from Hartford, Kentucky. I spent a lot of my early years tagging along with my Dad to various sporting events, so needless to say, I love sports! My favorite sports are basketball, baseball, football, and tennis. I love to play tennis whenever the weather permits. My favorite team bar none is the St. Louis Cardinals. I love TV way too much! A partial list of my favorite shows would include The Walking Dead, Stranger Things, Bob's Burgers, American Horror Story, RuPaul's Drag Race, Mystery Science Theater 3000, The Real Housewives of: New York City, Atlanta, Beverly Hills, Orange County, Salt Lake City, Only Murders in the Building, you get the idea. My music taste is varied, I like k.d. lang, Lady GaGa, Reba, Dolly, Loretta, Old Crow Medicine Show, Ryan Adams, John Prine, Madonna, Kate Bush, Radiohead, and lots more. My hobbies include reading, writing, spending time with my family and friends, and snapping Snapchat selfies with my niece Zoey. I started my broadcasting career in 1998 at Western Kentucky University and I have been involved in radio ever since.
