Hi, everyone! I’m Sam, your resident Grey's Anatomy fanatic and Hallmark Christmas movie-obsessed DJ. I was born in New York City but raised in Canton, Missouri. Go Tigers! Still, I miss New York pizza and Italian pastries. I'm a huge Wonder Woman and Superman nerd and I'm crazy about more television shows than I can even count. I love hanging with my two beautiful daughters, Ava and Alexis, and my husband, Justin. I've wanted to work in radio since I was a kid. It's truly a dream come true. And I love talking to each of you each and every day.
