Karen is a Hampton Roads native, born and raised in Newport News and now lives in Norfolk. She has four daughters who are her best friends. Karen has been on the air on the Eagle for over 25 years and very passionate about radio and connecting with her listeners.  

Karen is also very passionate about her charitable causes.  She is active with the American Cancer Society’s “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” campaign in memory of her sister Ginni, who passed away peacefully of breast cancer in 2005.  She is also very active with St. Jude Children’s Hospital’s endeavor to end childhood cancer.

Karen recently began traveling internationally and crossing things off her bucket list, proving to herself that if you want something bad enough, go for it!  She has taken several trips on a very VERY small budget and shares her experiences on “Travelin’ With Karen.”  

Her favorite quote of all time is from Maya Angelou:  “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”  

Did Chris Pratt Predict His Future 10 Years Ago?

Before Chris Pratt’s breakthrough role as Peter Quill in “Guardians of the Galaxy”, he was known for his role as the loveable Andy Dwyer on “Parks and Recreation.” During an early season, Chris was asked to make a behind the scenes video about Parks & Rec. He jokingly answers a “text” from “Steven Spielberg.” Listen to what he said!

Did he psychically know that he would be fighting dinosaurs in his future???

Maybe he should add “fortune teller” to his resume!
