Tanya said, “It’s been my dream to do a national radio show. I’m seriously pumped and grateful for the opportunity. The only thing I’m worried about is that the metro shows are filmed so I may have to put some effort into my appearance. Jokes! Expect a non-supportive bra, no make-up and a messy bun with pastry in it. But seriously I’m stoked!”
