Hi I'm Danielle Hedges. I am local girl who is so happy to be on my hometown radio station. After high school, I moved to Tennessee where I went to college and met my husband. After a few years away, I missed my family and my beloved West Virginia so I came back home.
I am a mom to Kacey, Karee and Kaden, they keep me pretty busy. I love trying to make desserts and crafts off Pinterest. They usually turn out pretty good (most of the time). I love party planning and decorating for all the holidays. I collect snowmen, I have over 300!
I have always loved music and being a DJ gives me the chance to listen to music everyday!
Questions Your Kids Ask You.

I have been on the radio from before my oldest daughter Kacey was born. It is a normal thing for her to hear my voice on the radio. She asked me the other day when we were walking through Walmart if I was "famous" because I was on the radio. I started to think about this. I never thought of myself as "famous."
I think for radio DJ's it a weird thing because you as a listener, don't see us face to face like you would see someone on TV or a movie. I could be standing beside you in line at the grocery store and you would not know that I was on your favorite radio station. It is really cool when people find out that I am on the radio. People act excited. Probably the most popular question I get asked is "what is it like to be in a room by yourself and talking into a microphone?" I might be here alone but when I am talking I am thinking about the mom that is driving to do errands, the people that are working hard at McDonald's, the ladies and fellows working at City Hospital, I think about you.
So to go back to my daughter's question am I "famous?" I don't think I am. I think I am a friend who is there when you need help getting through a bad day or there celebrating with you as you make it through your crazy life. That's my favorite part of being on the radio...being there for my friends.
