Erin Grant

I am originally from Hartford, Kentucky in Ohio County, which is 20 miles south of Owensboro. I spent a lot of my early years tagging along with my Dad to various sporting events, so needless to say, I love sports! My favorite sports are basketball, baseball, football, tennis. My favorite team bar none is the St. Louis Cardinals. I love TV way too much! A partial list of my favorite shows would include The Walking Dead, American Horror Story, Glee, Pretty Little Liars, GIRLS, True Blood, Face Off, Survivor, The Big Bang Theory, you get the idea. My hobbies include reading, writing, blogging and spending time with my niece Zoey. I started my broadcasting career in 1998 at Western Kentucky University and I have been involved in radio ever since.

Will Queen Elizabeth II See Her Platinum Jubilee? [VIDEO]

The monarchy has always fascinated me. Yes, other countries have kings and queens, but the tradition in England is what is etched in our minds. The crowns, the throne, the whole big show, it's what makes the British monarchy an enduring institution. Queen Elizabeth II is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee this year and she's one of the rare leaders to see a 60-year reign, the other being Queen Victoria, who ruled a total of 64 years. If Elizabeth makes it to her Platinum Jubilee, she will be 96 years old.

Sunday’s Indy 500 Will Be Missing Two Familiar Faces

Sunday's Indianapolis 500 won't be the same for a couple of reasons. Last year's winner, Dan Wheldon, tragically died last October as the result of a collision in a race in Las Vegas. And one of the sports biggest draws will be driving, but in a totally different series. Danica Patrick will miss this year's Indy 500 for the first time since her rookie year in 2005, which ironically is the same year Wheldon won his first 500.
