Co-Host, Liz & Scotty in the Morning
Clear99, Columbia, Missouri


When I was about 13, I quickly realized my childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian was not going to work out when I almost threw up during a science class dissection. The next logical career choice I had was to somehow get involved in the entertainment industry. Every morning I would turn on my local country radio station and quickly fell in love with the personalities behind the mic. My new dream was born.

I was born in Nashville, Tennessee (you might hear me say ya’ll once in a while), but I mostly grew up in St. Louis. To this day, I am horrible with directions and barely know my right from my left. I still question how I was able to get around a major metropolitan city. Directionally, Columbia is much more manageable. It’s also where my mom was born and raised! I’ve been in Mid-Missouri for the past few years and it now has a huge place in my heart!

There are three major loves in my life: mermaids, corgis and Rascal Flatts. I have always wanted to become a mermaid and I don’t think I will ever give up on the dream of sprouting a tail. One of the best moments of my life was graduating from a mermaid academy in Florida. Aside from being the cutest dogs on the planet, corgis are also the sassiest. I have two stumpy-legged children, Nellie and Dasher, and they are the lights of my life. I am forewarning you, if you ask me about them you might be stuck for hours listening to me brag about my fur-babies. Finally, I am one major Flatt Head! There’s just something about Gary, Joe Don and Jay that is truly special to me. At the top of my bucket list is meeting the band…a girl can only dream!

Words cannot describe how excited I am to be on Clear 99 and wake up with you every single morning. Like so many others, country music feels like home to me and I can’t wait to be a part of this special family! This truly is a dream come true!
