I have been in radio for over 20 years, all here in the Lafayette market. I started working in radio shortly after being hired for a news internship with KPEL radio in 1994, a station everybody in the family listened to when I was growing up in Lafayette.I love news, politics and obviously, I talk a lot! I knew news might be for me as a kid when someone asked me if I had a favorite television show, and I answered, “60 Minutes”.When I’m not cracking jokes, poking fun at myself, or giving the public their daily dose of news, I’m at home spending time with my husband Chief and the world’s greatest dogs, Marlie and Gracie. They are precious.I am passionate about news, politics, family and friends along with our great Acadiana area. If you ever have a news tip, you can call us at 233-6000, extension 248. You can also send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or reach me on Facebook.
