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!

Who do you think should pay for the check on a first date? Should it be a man's job or have we gotten to a point where it should be 50/50? A new poll finds 51 percent of men say they would rather split the bill!
Call me old fashioned, but I'd like the guy to at least offer to pay for the whole thing on the first date! (Hey you gotta impress me!) However, as the relationship progresses I think whomever has more money at the time should pay! (Does that make sense?) Rob and I try a rotation thing usually!

Do you have a favorite child? It's ok you can admit it... I promise I won't tell!!! I ask because this dad in Canada is trouble for admitting on his blog he has a favorite son. (Check Out More Here)
To be fair, I think he only likes his first born because he's older and can do more stuff. The question is: should he have said it out loud? Let's hear your opinion on Facebook!
I'm pretty sure I was the favorite in the family... =)
This story out of Texas is gaining national attention after a school offered a student the choice of a two day suspension or the option of getting paddled as punishment! (Check it out here)
Would you let your child get spanked in school? I know when I went to Catholic Grade School they were just moving away from paddling. However, we did still have a Nun who'd pinch the pressure point in your shoulder when you were being too loud! (which I always seemed to be!)

Can you remember your first car? I bet it was nothing like this 15 year old in Texas who's mom's boyfriend has given her a $300,000 Lamborghini to drive to her Dallas high school! (check out more here) I had to borrow my mom's Chevy Astro Van everywhere I went in high school! (Which was awesome, cause you could shove so many people in that van!) I can remember wanting to be on MTV's Pimp My Ride so badly! The first car I ever owned wasn't much better... a Buick Century (above)! Hey, my Aunt gave to me! I know I ride in style!
Let's hear your first car stories on Facebook!
