I woke up today feeling excited and appreciative, as today marks one year since I joined Fun 107. I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to live out my dream of being in the media every single day with a group of motivated and positive people that make the work day a little more enjoyable.

It’s incredible how fast a year goes by. In the moment, time seemingly drags on, especially during a year like 2020, but as I reminisce on my first year at Fun 107, I’m speechless at how quickly it passed. Time flies when you’re having fun, and I have my coworkers to thank for that.

It’s scary to start a new job in a new town. I knew nothing about the SouthCoast when I walked into the studio that first morning, and I was so nervous that I wouldn’t fit in. Much like attending a new school halfway through the semester, I felt like the new kid that had a lot of catching up to do, but Michael and Gazelle made me feel at home from the very first day.

Since my first day on Fun 107, I have learned a lot about the SouthCoast and our loyal listeners. I learned, rather quickly, that foodies thrive in this area thanks to the incredible selection of local restaurants, and I learned that my car was not cut out for cobblestone streets. But most importantly, I learned a lot about my co-hosts, Michael and Gazelle,

I have never met a person that is as caring as Gazelle. He is so quick to help out anyone he meets and is a loyal friend that anyone would be lucky to have. The only thing bigger than his heart is the love he has for good food, a trait that we bonded over time and time again. I can always count on him for a lunch date.

When I first met Michael, he didn’t strike me as a fashionista, but I soon discovered that his shoe collection was extensive. He comes to work in a different pair of shoes every day, and I’m convinced he has a pair for every day of the month.

In celebration of my first year, here are my top seven memories with Michael and Gazelle:
