Dani in the Morning

Get to Know Dani!

Where are you from? Currently I live in Ladd with my husband, two daughters, and dog but I’m originally from Geneseo. 

What do you do in your free time? I stay plenty busy with a toddler, a baby, and a loving but clueless husband. I love hanging out with my family, hitting the gym, and relaxing with a good cup of coffee with the dog. 

Favorite part of your job? Love getting to know my listeners and every day is new! There are always new stories, events to talk about,  and new music to share. 

Previous job experiences? I’ve worked in radio broadcasting for about 15 years. I got my first radio job when I was 15 at a little station in Kewanee, IL. From there, I went to  college at WIU Macomb for Radio Broadcasting/Music Business. I worked at my college town station and progressed to stations in Rochelle, Bloomington, and then landed here!

Favorite snack food? You can never go wrong with pizza, no matter the meal, hot or cold.
