Hello I am Erin McCarty! I am originally from Baton Rouge and I am a huge LSU fan. Geaux Tigers! I now call Shreveport home and have enjoyed working in radio for over 30 years. You can hear me doing the news on several of our stations each day. To hear more from you will need to tune into KEEL. I am half of the KEEL Morning Show team with Robert J Wright. Every weekday morning, we cover the hottest topics that impact our local, national and global communities. I am a proud mother of two sons who both serve our country and I have a dog, Tiger, who keeps me on my toes.
