MJ and Sam

What do you get when you pair up a mountain-biking, ex-football player with two kids, two dogs and a passion for surfing with a never-been-married neurotic who lives in her mother’s guest bedroom? You get MJ and Sam, weekday mornings from 5:30 – 10:00 AM. It's perfectly safe...

I am thrilled to be one half of the morning team for 101.7 FM - weekdays 5:30 to 10:00 AM - and I fly solo in the middays from 10:00 - 2:00 PM.

I moved to Bend from Los Angeles where I worked (but mostly didn't work) as an actress in film and television. Prior to L.A., I spent nearly ten years at The Second City writing and performing sketch comedy.

Most important things to know about me: I live in my mother's guest bedroom, never litter, want to learn how to drive stick shift and truly appreciate my good fortune to have such a fun job.

Thanks for listening!
