I'm Rachel. You may also know me as my alias, "Raquel" from Wrong Number Flirting on Thursdays at 7:30am. But you can hear me EVERY morning from 6-10am hosting Wakin' Up on RadioNOW 100.9!
You can also see Kyle, BLord, and myself on Dish Nation each weekday (Locally on WISH-TV at 12:30am, and nationally [check your local listings for "Dish Nation]).
I'm a born-and-bred Hoosier girl from Gnawbone, Indiana. And YES, that is a real place (Google Map it!). It's sort of like a suburb of Nashville, Indiana, which is a super metropolitan town in Brown County with 4 stoplights, one grocery store, a McDonalds AND a Subway. But our claim to tourism fame is trees...LOTS of TREES.
I'm the middle of three sisters and a proud graduate of Brown County High School Class of '06, where I specialized in being a theatre and showchoir geek, cheerleading, and talking during class (oops).
I'm also a 2010 graduate of Indiana University where I majored in Journalism, Political Science and Pre-Law. But ironically, since entire dad's side of the family is from Kentucky, I was raised around rabid University of Kentucky fans. So I'm actually a big UK basketball fan. I know...blasphemy right?
Aside from goofing around in the radio every morning, I also enjoy running, yoga/pilates, cooking, music of all kinds, singing, sports (I'm a big IndyCar, MotoGP, basketball and Colts football fan), online shopping, shopping in general, bargain hunting, Pinterest, and live-Tweeting my inner-most ridiculous thoughts, especially during serious televised events (check out the link to follow me on Twitter). I'm also a slave to my TV guilty pleasures: The Bachelor, Scandal, Greys Anatomy, and just about every other show on E! Network.
Most importantly, the apple of my eye is my 5lb morkie, Gizmo. She's the coolest.
