I have to tell you something…

I’m having a hard time figuring out how to put into words everything that I want to say.

I’ve always been pretty blunt so I’ll just start with I’ve accepted another position outside of radio. Sometimes opportunities arise that just makes sense. I was offered an opportunity that just makes sense for me and my family and it would be foolish of me not to take it. That being said I want to backtrack a little just to say that I have loved all 3 1/2 years of my time on Y107. Working in radio gave me so many amazing opportunities that I know I would never have gotten to do otherwise and it allowed me to meet so many incredible people from all across the state who I would otherwise never get to know of their awesome existence. I have loved entertaining you, hearing your story, getting your opinions on things, and learning your worldview. I want you to know that not a second of the opportunity was lost on me. I want to give a huge thank you to Cosmo who has been an amazing and patient mentor and become a great friend.

I’m staying in Columbia. You’ll still see me at Aldi and Stephen’s lake. I’ll still be loud. I’ll still be weird. I’ll just be sleeping a bit later.

Stay fun. Stay funky.

Love, Lauren

    I have loved listening to you guys for the past couple of years, for some reason I got into my head Como’s name was Coco… I used to say to my hubby turn on the show with Lauren and Coco.. (sorry Cosmo) He would just giggle. You both are apart of my morning routine but it was great to have a woman to listen to, I just love that women have been represented on the radio by someone who is loud, entertaining and funny as hell. I’m sad that you are leaving but I’m excited for you and the next chapter of your life. You do what you need to do, just know you made me and my almost double digits girl happy in the mornings. Thank you Lauren, congratulations and good luck <3
