According to WJXA-FM/WNFN- FM Operations Manager Barbara Bridges, “Anna has a 20-year track record of success with our female audience and our fans absolutely love her! The warmth and connection she will bring to a special nighttime show will be amazing. I can’t wait to hear what we can do when Anna gets rolling!”
