Annie was born and raised in Northwest Indiana with her younger sister and parents in Hammond. After spending some time out of the area chasing the radio dream she has moved back to start a family with her two main men: Jager the mutt and fiance Rob. When she is not on the air Annie enjoys cheering her favorite Chicago sports teams (Da Bears, Da Bulls, And Da Sox), hiking, and exploring new fairs and festivals! (Anything Deep Fried she's in!) Annie cannot wait to share her life with you on air and is excited to be back in the Region doing what she loves!

I came across this article on Yahoo today that made me tear up! It's about this mom who quit her job when her boss wouldn't let her take vacation to see her son play in the Little League World Series. Would you do the same? (Check Out Full Story Here)
I'm such a sap for great family stories, cause it makes me reminiscent of my childhood. I cannot remember a time my mom and dad weren't there for my events...even though we lost at EVERYTHING! My mom even volunteered to be our Volleyball coach in Middle School, when no one else would. (She knew NOTHING about the sport!) Do you have great parents/are you a great parent? Let's Hear About It On Facebook!
A new study says on average parents will spend more money on daycare for their kids than college! This is insane to me! However, I guess it makes sense. More parents are working and there are more single parents today. In 22 states childcare now costs more than median rent! What is it like for you as a parent? Let us know on Facebook!
I am having the worst problem EVER, I cannot stop eating! I keep snacking on everything... today my choice Pretzel MnMs!!! Yesterday, I ate a nectarine, muffins, pretzel crisps, sea salt almond bar, and other garbage before 6am! This is CRAZY!!! Things have gotten so bad that my mom sent me out for cleaning supplies yesterday and I look in the cart and all I have is Pretzel MnMs and Chocolate Donuts!(Somehow I don't think that counts!)
It gets worse... on the way to the car I tripped and spilled the MnMs everywhere... you would have thought someone stabbed me the way I screamed! Do you have that one snack you can't stop eating?!?! Please say I'm not alone!
I need your help! Rob and I are looking for somewhere in driving distance to take a Labor Day Weekend Adventure! Any suggestions?!?! I know it's last minute, but somehow no matter how much I try to plan it always works out this way!
Last year we went to Traverse City and it was AMAZING! I have been hearing good things about Door County, WI... but I don't know if I can be that close to Cheeseheads! J/K!
Anyway, looking for something laid back maybe with hiking or biking trails and golf (YUCK)! Oh and it has to be somewhat cheap! Ha!
Any suggestions... Post Them On Facebook!
