I was the CMA Large Market Broadcast personality of the Year in 2000, and the Country Radio Broadcasters Large Market Broadcast personality of the Year in 2001. I grew up on a horse farm in Atlanta, Georgia! My parents and Sister own and operate Ward Stables located north of Atlanta, one of the top American Saddlebred Training facilities in the Southeast! Graduated from Colonial Hills Christian High School in 1986, Jefferson State College in 1990, and Auburn University in 1992. I'm a huge Atlanta Braves fan, and adopted the Pittsburgh Steelers as my Pro football team when I got married. I began my radio career while attending college, with my first job in radio as a sportscaster at Auburn University. (I bleed Orange and Blue! Go Tigers!)
I spend my free time playing with my Grandson Rydan, and hanging out with my husband whenever we aren't both working. I enjoy family & friends, Caribbean vacations as often as possible. Racing & horses. Christian faith. I love to help others through volunteerism:

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that reporter Angelica Duria did just that a couple days ago, while on site to deliver a somber news report about a devastating blaze. You can see her in the clip above, busting a move in fuchsia rain boots about a half block up from a home cordoned off by fluorescent yellow crime scene tape.
The tape is delineating the area where, one night earlier, three siblings—twin four-year-old boys and a five year old girl—perished in a fire. Not a wacky fire. A regular one.
According to the Sentinel, eyewitnesses working for other news organizations saw Duria filming her dance on the morning it happened and "wondered about its appropriateness." Local outrage grew after the video was posted online and viewers recognized the backdrop.
