I wanted to let all of my friends know that after 14 years on 100.3 The Edge I am taking a new job with the company and my last day on the air will be tomorrow (Friday 4/19). It's been an honor to have been part of your lives everyday while you listened to The Edge. We've had some amazing times together and I will miss all of you, my beloved Edgeheads. The Edge is in great hands with Matt Cruz and Corey and Patrick In The Morning so nothing is changing when it comes to the station you know and love. Thanks for always supporting The Edge and for supporting me by listening! I will be moving and taking a new promotion with iHeart Radio and am very excited about my next life chapter. Your dedication to The Edge and your passion for rock drove my energy and inspired me everyday to rock even harder! Thanks for everything and stay in touch!
