What was your first radio job? I interned for a morning show, and I got to go to many red carpet events, so I LOVED it.
What was the worst job you ever had? hmm...this is a tough one. I think I've liked all my jobs, but some have been harder than others. I think the toughest was charging for parking at the Orange Blossom Festival in Riverside. We had to flag people to come to our lots and charge them, all under the heat of the 90 degrees�sun...and did I mention I forgot the sunblock? Yeah, not pretty. The second hardest was probably being a telemarketer. I had tons of people yell at me and hang up. I don't blame them, but hey it was my job to interrupt their dinner hehe
Most embarrassing on-air moment?�I'm not sure that this ever aired, but messing up a reality�star's name...his last name was Fairplay and well I said something else ; ) Oh and also interviewing Carmen Electra and calling her Jenny McCarthy oops! But the worst was last year when Mark & Kim revealed that I had a crush on my personal trainer...on the air...and while he was on the phone! I don't think I've ever blushed that much.
Best experience in radio? Meeting some of my closest friends, tons of celebrities and our wonderful listeners. And hearing myself on the air for the VERY first time...I was like "Oh my gosh...that's me!"
If you weren't in radio, what would you be doing?�I would be a broadcast journalist, an actress, a writer, a lawyer, a stylist, a PR person or a school counselor.�
What advice would you give to anyone who would like to get into the business? I would say intern, intern, intern.�Work VERY HARD, be persistent, network, and be willing to make sacrifices.
Best artist you met/interviewed?�
WOW this is tough...I've met lots of cool people, but I was SUPER excited to meet Steve Martin because he's AMAZING. As a 90's kid meeting Bob Saget from "Full House," and Scott Baio from "Charles in Charge" was a big deal. I also�probably earned major cool girl points for scoring a sit-down interview with Matthew McConaughey ;) Still, the ULTIMATE COOLEST person I've met has to be JOHN TRAVOLTA!
One of my favorite travel/food writers is Anthony Bourdain. Years ago, I was on the same flight to Barcelona as him and I instantly became a FAN! Anyway, I was sad when I heard that his show "No Reservations," on the Travel Channel was coming to an end...only to later be filled with excitement when I heard he was starting a whole new show on CNN. His new show is called "Parts Unknown" it airs Sundays at 9pm on CNN. This past Sunday guess where he traveled to? Our very own Koreatown here in L.A.! Yep, he explored the streets and delicious food of Koreatown. And guess who showed him around L.A.? Kogi Chef Roy Choi!!! It was AWESOME!!! Did you watch it? If you missed it here's a clip. Enjoy!
Here's a map of all the places Bourdain visited during his stay in L.A. Make a note of them!
