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. Kpel was a station everybody in the family listened to when I was growing up in Lafayette. I love radio, news, politics and obviously talking! 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 the world’s greatest dogs, Marlie and Gracie. They are precious. I am passionate about family, friends, my community, news and politics.
