Katy

Hey Tri-State! I wanted to first thank everyone for all the support over the last few years. Working at WAYZ has been an awesome experience and it is mainly because of you. A little about me? Well, I am from Reading, Pa and went to York College to earn my degree in Speech Communication. I am in a sorority, Delta Phi Epsilon, and my sisters have had a huge impact on my life. I have great friends and an even better family. My younger brother David is my best friend and I am so blessed to have such a great sibling. I rescued a 3 legged cat, named Uno, who makes me smile everyday. I have always been a very upbeat, annoying girl who always has a smile on her face. Lastly, I couldn’t imagine working so closely with anyone other than Tiny. Tiny has become one of my greatest friends and I am so glad we got paired up to try and make your mornings a little brighter!  I have always loved radio and microphones and I am so lucky that now I get paid to talk on one. It’s fantastic! Feel free to email me katy@wayz.com at anytime with requests, stories…anything! Thanks again for making my job the best job in the world.

Our dear Katy is leaving us to start a new adventure in her life, please ‚Äčclick HERE to hear Katy's Announcement!

 A photo of an injured Army Ranger saluting his commanding officer from his hospital bed is inspiring thousands of people on Facebook right now. Here's the story behind it.

 Corporal Josh Hargis from Cincinnati was in the middle of his fourth tour in Afghanistan on October 6th, when he was seriously injured by a suicide bomber. Four other soldiers were killed.

After Josh got out of surgery, his commanding officer . . . along with more than 50 other soldiers, doctors, and nurses . . . went to his hospital room to see him be presented with a Purple Heart. And they all ASSUMED Josh was still unconscious.

 But when his commanding officer pinned the medal on to his blanket, Josh started moving. Then a doctor tried to restrain him, but Josh fought against him, raised his right arm, and saluted.

 Someone managed to snap a photo of it, which was sent to Josh's wife, Taylor, along with a letter from his commanding officer, where he described the moment as, quote, "the single greatest event I have witnessed in my ten years in the Army."

He also said he thought the photo belonged on, quote, "every news channel and [in] every newspaper." So Taylor posted it on Facebook. And right now, it's being run by news outlets all over the WORLD.

 By the way, Josh has since had his breathing tube removed, and his mother says he's in good spirits. His wife has also talked to him on the phone and says that from the sound of his voice, she can tell "he's going to be just fine."
