Co-Host of Longhorn Live Radio Show, 2011

After several years as "Guest" Co-Host, I'm glad my Guardian Angel, Mr. Eugene Williams, insisted and got me to join his tribe (alongside Attorneys, Robert Rios and Rosie Alvarado) at "Longhorn Live," a show, primarily focusing on, yes, you guessed it, The LongHorns & Sports, in general.   Thankfully,  "Longhorn Gene" as Eugene is affectionately known by his friends and colleagues, and I share a love of God. As such, we have been working together for the past 4 years, as servants of our Lord. Eugene has asked me to help bring awareness to Blood Drives, Emcee events for "Boys Town," etc. etc. Here we are Co-Hosting the Silent Auction:)  Why am I doing ALL the talkin'?  As we got on stage, Eugene confessed that he forgot to bring his reading glasses! LOL.

As the show evolved, Eugene and I come as a package with God so, too, He became a part of our show and we're so blessed to have joined forces with "Women With A Cause," to form a second hour segment called "Girl Talk."  That's where I come in:)  Weekly, on Thursdays, from 7-8pm on 93.7fm, we highlight heroes in our community and help to promote community events. I do have my Sports moments, however, as I recently go to interview already football great, Steele High School State Champ and soon to be Longhorn!  Malcolm Brown (on the left w/Coach Johnston and Malcolm). Thank you to my boyfriend, Christopher Soto, for making this interview possible, thanks to his friendship with State Championship Coach Michael Jinks-they went to Judson High School). Click here: http://www.box.net/shared/e35t502fh9lmn2jbv0pm to listen to the broadcast of the show with this interview.                                                    

 On the right you are some Radio Spots I've done for "Longhorn Live" Radio.

Interviewing my brother, Nick Verreos,the MOST Talented Designer and Fashion Critic in the world

At an event just recently, the HOst of Longhorn Live "Longhorn Gene" was kind to relay the 
compliments that  I received from many about my Malcolm Brown interview. Thank you all so much! I also was very fortunate to interview State Champion Coach Michael Jinks on last week's show. I will upload that broadcast soon.  We also received AMAZING news, that we've been nominated to receive an award as outstanding Radio show for our community segments, which we do during the part of the show we call "Girl Talk,"  I co-host those alongside Rosie Alvarado & Kimberly Font Jones.
