Fill and substitute announcer
He's a quiet storm of sorts, but not in the way that you may think. He is a new talent , eager to learn and mold his craft into an unforgettable experience for you to enjoy. He's creative, not afraid of change like so many that came before him. He takes direction well. Once we gave him a shot to play in front of one of our seasoned crowds. It came back to me (because I wasn't there) that we can send him anytime. Not bad for his first night out!
She's mild mannered, quick witted and sharp as a straight razor. She's a wife, a mother, a clerical genius and I've adopted her as my little sister. Don't take her mild demeanor lightly. Carolyn is about her business, and soon she'll join the staff as a show host.
