From across the Atlantic, Germany actually, Big Country brings you Bridget Taylor! She came to the states when she was 3. Her father was a Captain in the Army and they called home, Ft. Hood Texas. Radio became her love at 10 when she visited a local mall where a huge juke box, on wheels, rolled into the parking lot and the dj gave her a record. She still has that record! Bridget raises 2 boys, 13 and 17, and their furbaby, Zuko… single-handedly. When not fueling other people’s souls with music and chatter, Bridget enjoys camping, fishing festivals/fairs. Road Trips are her ‘Church’! She fills the car with great music from Country to Rock ‘N Roll, but loves all genres of music. “It feeds my soul and fuels her life.”
Bridget BURNS with passion for radio! She loves the fact that she can have more freedom in her life and help others in unexpected and rewarding ways. She loves putting smiles on people’s faces and believes is that laughter is key. Knowing that she might have made you laugh while listening to her show; that is what makes her extra-ordinary job rewarding. Listening to Bridget on Big Country 99.5 you will know every thing about her, her highs. Her lows. She is, in her words, ‘beautifully flawed’ and she owns it!
