Annie was born and raised in Peru, IL.  She landed in radio by sheer luck working for WLRZ (now WBZG) in the early 90’s. She moved to Phoenix in 1994 and graduated from the Academy of Radio Broadcasting in 1996. After that she began working for KNIX/KCWW/Real Country Network for a couple years.

Annie returns to the Illinois Valley after being gone 15 years. She is a HUGE Chicago Blackhawks fan, often found screaming at her TV during games. Her proudest moment is when her beloved Chicago Cubs won the World Series. She is mom to two teenage man-children who keep her on her toes and test her patience daily. Her greatest fear is showing up on a “People of Wal-Mart” photo display.
