Anna wasn’t too sure what she wanted to do when she went to college. When she was younger she used to get in trouble for talking all the time, so she decided instead of getting in trouble for talking, why don’t I get paid for it? This led her to fall in love with morning radio. She started out as a part timer on the weekends in North Carolina. From there she moved to Saginaw, MI to co-host her first morning show, and then moved to Vero Beach, FL to co-host yet again. Now she’s made her home at 95.1 WAPE’s The Big Ape Morning Mess. When she isn’t on the air, you can usually find her at the beach, a lake, or a dive bar.
