She started working at 77WABC soon after college in December of 1998 but never planned to go into radio. “I was up there meeting my friend before we went out for drinks. She was running the board and screening calls for this woman named Lynn Samuels and I started to help her. My then boss walked in and hired me on the spot as they were short staffed.”
She then went on to screen calls for Curtis & Kuby until a spot opened up on the Sean Hannity Show. “My boss told me to come in and meet him as I’d never heard of him. First thing he says is do you know who I am and I was like, um, no and he was like, did you ever hear of Fox News and I said well I watch the Simpsons on Fox is that the same channel?! After a few questions about politics of which I knew none of, he told me I was hired and he wanted to put a microphone where I’d sit so I can talk with him on air. I said no way I did not want to talk on radio-I wanted to be a teacher, but he convinced me It’d be fine and it was!” She was let go in 2011 along with 15 other employees as the company changed ownership. She was hired back in 2013 when they brought back Curtis and Kuby to afternoon drive. She lives on Long Island with her husband, 3 children and dog!
