Believer in it All

Tammy broke into broadcasting at a time when the few women who were on the air were there to make the guys look good by giggling at their jokes. Knowing she could do more and determined to do so, Tammy moved into New and Sports - becoming one of the first female sportscasters allowed in to the locker rooms of Southern California's professional sports teams (and getting kicked out a lot too!) Her story is one of determination, goal-setting and always looking for the next great challenge.

Podcasting: New Era of Radio

It's being called the New Era of Radio and Tammy has been on the cutting edge of it since the beginning.

She lets you in on the secrets behind being a successful podcaster in a lively discussion that will make you anxious to become the next great podcaster!

News Broadcasting: A Day in the Life

A real-life look into the life of a News Broadcaster. Tammy tells it like it is from the 'normal' day on the air to the excitement of covering breaking news and even the nerve-gripping experience of covering wildfires, riots and earthquakes. What you hear and see on the air is only a fraction of what it is like to really be there. It's a lifestyle and a passion - and Tammy tells it all.
