You can hear me doing the news on several of our stations each day. To hear more from you will need to tune into KEEL. I am half of the KEEL Morning Show team with Robert J Wright. Every weekday morning, we cover the hottest topics that impact our local, national and global communities. I am a proud mother of two sons who both serve our country and I have a dog, Tiger, who keeps me on my toes.
