Birthday: April 5th. The year does not matter - I refuse to grow up! (I'm an Aries, and my birthstone is a diamond, if you want to get me a gift)
Birthplace: Elgin, Illinois/Cook County (Chicago)
Mother/Father: Janet lives in Russellville. Father - Jack, deceased
Brothers/Sisters: None. I am the only one! My mother says this is a good thing.
Marital Status: Married to Pete Porter
Children: Hannah (Pete's daughter) and li'l man Kristian Lane. We had two schnauzers that we adopted from the Humane Society, Mr. Lucky and Beamer. We lost both of them in 2013. We added Quincy to our family in December 2014. He's a miniature schnauzer from the Bowling Green - Warren County Humane Society. He's just a joy and provides us with a lot of love and smiles! Check out the photos of Quincy below my bio.
Education: Let's not go there… I did graduate from High School (Bridgeport ALABAMA). Some college experience, including WKU! (Go Tops!)
Radio Career: Started when I was 15! (Yes, I 've been at it a few years) I wanted to make some money. Mom said, "get a job", so I did. I have worked with a lot of music formats; Country, Rock-N-Roll, news/talk, Oldies, and Classic Rock. (I don't do Hip-Hop or Rap) I have been with The Beaver since the beginning in 1984.
