This week Mary and I are joined by Kati Harrison who, in addition to being WBJC’s Operations Director, also happens to be my wife…and I happen to be her husband! We figured that since I proposed on air a year ago in February (during a fundraiser) and we celebrated our real anniversary on 5/18 fundraising, […]
