All About Brooke...
Wow, What do I say? I wanna seem interesting. :) So much in a small amount of time.
I was born in the traditional blizzards of Buffalo, NY (Gotta love that snow). I attended high school at Williamsville North or Willie N as we call it back home. After high school I attended the SUNY Buffalo for a few years until I got the urge to join the ARMY (Air Assault!!!). I did 3 years active duty stationed at Fort Campbell (Again I say, Air Assualt and a big HOOAH to my army buddies), which is what brought me to the South.
I now have two beautiful (and very expressive) little girls - Bella who is 14 and Bree who is 12. They are in the 9th and 7th grade, respectively. After Army life, I decided to go back to school and studied Education at APSU, then decided I that I had a big mouth and liked to talk a lot, so why not put it to work for me and changed my major to Communications. As they say... the rest is history... in the making!!!
1. What time are you on?
2. How long have you been in radio?
Eleven long hard torturous years… just kidding. I have loved every minute of it...well almost every minute.
3. What made you want to get in to radio?
It was a fluke… I wanted to meet my favorite on-air personality, and he was giving people a chance to guest host with him. I went for the chance to meet him and fell in love…with radio that is.
4. Steak or hamburgers?
Hmmm… is it payday??? Around the 15th and 30th I love steak. Other than that… what’s steak??? It's all about the hamburger. (And around tax time LOBSTER, lol)
5. What’s the worst job you ever had?
I would have to say… I really haven’t had one that scarred me… yet!!!!
6. What’s the first job you ever had?
Camp counselor at the YMCA back home
7. When you’re alone, and its midnight… what’s your favorite thing to do?
Duh… eat ice cream and watch "Friends" (or Bones on Netflix...shh!)
8. What’s your favorite movie?
That’s a hard one… right now I would have to say… anything with Matthew McConaughey.
9. If you weren’t in radio what would you be doing?
Probably working at the mall… I love to shop, and what better way to spend your day than surrounded by the clothes you love… A & F here I come.
10. What’s in your CD player right now?
ELLIOTT YAMIN!!! (I can't wait til its holiday time so I can pop in his Christmas album...yeah I know a little obsessed, lol).
11. What’s in your wallet/purse?
Hahaha… receipts and lots of them... and 3 dollars. Do bank cards count if you can use them anymore? LOL. A couple pics of my girls but most of those are in my cell phones which are also in my purse.
12. If you’re on a deserted island, name the 3 foods and one person you can’t survive without?
This is totally unfair… Can I make it 3 people and 1 food??? No… okay, popsicles (if it’s a deserted island its gotta be hot), Chili’s chips and salsa and root beer (wow that is some good stuff). My one person… McGyver. He could build a raft out of 2 sticks and some leaves.
13. Favorite reality TV show?
American Idol… does that count?? Dancing With The Stars..Just in case it doesn’t… Nip/Tuck or the new show Life.

Can’t Buy Me Love (from the 80’s), 50 First Dates ( I watch it every time it comes on TV) and Wedding Planner.
15. What’s the one thing that you do to win over the one you are interested in?
Ignore them… LOL. I know it sounds weird, but it usually works.
16. Can you cook? If so, what’s your best dish?
Yes… I love cooking… anything Italian or soup… homemade variety, not canned.
17. What’s your favorite feature on the opposite sex?
Back… I love a muscular back (I like to cuddle there). Throw in nice eyes, and its over for me, I’m a goner.
18. Smurfs or Gummi Bears?
Gummi bears… they drank stuff that made them bounce. The smurfs were a little scary. There was only one girl.
19. What’s your sign? Do you think it fits you?
Aquarius… to the core... fits me more than I usually like to admit.
20. What message do you want to share?
Do something that you love because you have to do it every day for the next (insert your number here) years.
