Hey ... I'm Michele Mathews, half of The Morning Bull Pen. Or you could say I'm the beauty and my partner is the beast! I'm a working mother of four kids trying to juggle everyday life without dropping any balls along the way. I'm born and raised in the Yakima Valley dirt. I started out in radio at the age of 15 at the Yakima Valley Skills Center. I've moved around the dial to various radio stations and took a few years off to raise babies before finding my home on The Bull. My one vice is drinking a mint mocha every morning. I LOVE (obsessed with) Alexandar Skarsgard, Sam Hunt and Tim McGraw. Follow me on Twitter @michelem929 and Instagram MICHELEM929. Remember that I love you!
