Salutations, y'all! I'm Meg Summers, an Alabama girl who's been back home in Tuscaloosa since 2009. I've been in radio since my college days (go WKU Hilltopppers!), so you could say music is my life. When I'm not managing Alt 1017, I'm ordering crap I don't need online or looking at stupid memes on my phone. I love college football, sweet tea, supporting local businesses, and pie. I think The Avenue Pub has the best cheeseburger in Tuscaloosa, and I will physically fight you if you disagree. I've seen 'The Big Lebowski' at least a thousand times, but my heart belongs to 'Almost Famous.' It's all happening--well, at least middays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
