Oh How Great It Feels To Be Back!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You to everyone who's sent me a text/email/comment/& called in!

As a kid who grew up in Kansas City and started everyday of high school with The Rock's Morning Show (is that dude Johnny still on it ;) Being able to be a Production Intern under AJ in 1998 I thought I'd reached the top! I had no idea, it was only the beginning. For those who know me and my story, this will be a recap, but for those who're learning about me for the first time, I'll keep it short.

In July of 2004 I was hired by The Rock on a part time level; Saturday Morning Board Op for The Morning Show leftovers. I quickly moved into a weekend/fill in role, then in March of '06 I took over the duties of nights. It'd be an understatement to say I absolutely loved what I did!

The economy hit everyone hard, and The Rock was no exception. On April 13th I was downsized and it will forever be remembered as one of the saddest days of my life.

October 5th, will forever be remembered as one of the happiest days of my life! I'm back home at The Rock and with you! In a new time slot, Afternoon Drive. I cannot, again, express how much this means to me, how happy I am, and how thankful I feel to be back on air at 98.9 and working with such amazingly awesome people as I do.

So here's to our future and all the kick ass Rock we're gonna Roll!
