[LISTEN] Brittany Got Brutally Roasted By Her Childhood Idols
Last week I stumbled upon my 8th-grade yearbook from 2004. I flipped to the section I wrote about myself (Side-note: Gosh, I was obnoxious) and got a bit choked up when I got to my "favorites" section and saw that I listed none other than Q 97.9.
I was such a huge fan of The Q Morning Show growing up and starting my day with Meredith, Jeff, and Lori. I remember thinking how awesome it was that they got to go to work every day and have fun. I wanted that. That feeling carried on through high school and college as I had talked myself out of pursuing radio as a job. I'd work job after job that I hated still thinking about the Morning Show and how they got paid to have fun.
16 years and a handful of chances taken later, here I am. I couldn't help but get a little choked up! I made little 14-year-old Brittany's dream come true. Not only do I work in radio, but at the station I grew up listening to that inspired me to want to work in radio. And if that weren't enough I work alongside Jeff and Lori. It was such a sweet moment to me that I wanted to share with them during the show.
And what sticks out? Not the full circle life moment, no, BUT MY APPARENT UNIBROW!
Here's the thing, I've ALWAYS hated that photo because my bangs make it appear that I have a unibrow, or at the very least, uber thick eyebrows. Like, way to hone in on my childhood insecurity, guys! Thats what I get for being a fan?!
Seriously though, It was all in good fun and to get roasted by my childhood idols is honestly an honor, mostly because I get to roast them right back each and every morning.
