Hey everyone, it’s Nancy! I live in Centerville with my cat, Casper. My four nephews CJ, Derrick, Matt and Andy have all graduated from high school and CJ and Matt have families of their own! My bf Kevin and I have been together forever! I miss my parents so very much, but know they’re proud of me and are happy. When I’m not cranking out the country on the Breakfast Club with Frye Guy, I love to go to concerts, watch stupid TV and hang out with my friends and family. Hard to believe I’ve been lucky enough to be at K99.1FM for so long, but the best part is getting to hang out with all of you on the radio!
Where were you born?
Springfield, Ohio but South Charleston is my hometown
What is your favorite TV show?
I tend to miss out on first run shows, but always watch the CMA and ACM Awards, the Voice and reruns: Roseanne, Frasier, Beverly Hills, 90210, and most recently, Law & Order! And I LOVE mens’ college basketball, especially my Dayton Flyers!
What was the first thing you ever wanted to be?
A singer. For some reason, I thought I was pretty good at it, and forced my sister to sit thru my “concerts” in the garage when we were growing up. I had to bribe her. I should have known! At the same time, I wanted to be a farmer and drive tractors all day.
How might someone have described you in high school?
My high school, Southeastern (go Trojans!) was pretty small, so everybody knew everybody. I was a joiner. Seriously, in pretty much every sport and club except football and FFA J
What was your first job?
Detasseling corn at Landmark in South Charleston. My Dad was so proud!
What was your first job in radio?
In college at the University of Dayton, I pulled the Saturday overnight shift. We didn’t have a lot of music there so I borrowed all my friends’ records (!) to make sure I had enough, schlepping albums and cassettes from my dorm room to Kennedy Union!
What do you like about your job?
Um, everything!! I get to work with my pal Frye Guy, play great country music, meet country stars (sometimes), and hang out with you guys on air and at events!
What might people be surprised to know about you?
My mom was from Germany, so I can speak German. I’m also a pretty good bowler, an advanced baton twirler and can drive a tractor!
What would be a perfect day for you?
It would start out working the morning show with Frye, take a nap with Casper, then get the car packed up to go see Dierks Bentley in concert. Then hang out with him after the show. With Kevin of course :)
What advice would you have for someone wanting to go into the business?
Do what you love and never give up. And remember, “there is no elevator to Success. You have to take the stairs.”
