Hi there! My name is Leesa Mitchell and I am most pleased to be part of the Big Cat.
My first place of residence was in a little town outside of Peoria IL called Farmington where de-tassling corn was a favorite summer job for us local kids. My dad worked for Peabody Coal Company and was transferred to Muhlenberg County, KY (yes, just like the John Prine song) before the family finally landed in Louisville.
I guess you can say I’m a city/country gal. Most people begin their radio careers as babies, but not me. Radio didn’t become part of my life until the ripe old age of 22 when I worked at various stations in Louisville including co-host of two top rated morning shows. I am a proud step mom to Tori & Ali and six grand kids, mom to Zena the Dixie dingo, Gabby the Tabby and married to my high school sweetheart (15 years after the fact!) Darrell.
It is my belief that we were put here to help each other and I try to make a difference in the world by helping raise awareness for Shelter Animal adoption and the local human trafficking task-force Rescue & Restore. Did I also mention that I am a special event DJ and Emcee? Phew! Give me a listen Midnight to 5 a.m.
