I'm Laurie...holdin' down the Point studio weekdays from 10-3p and Saturdays 8p-midnight! I mostly grew up in Marlboro and now live in Red Bank. In the studio you'll usually find me checking out my social media pages or looking for funny or interesting stories to talk about. Outside the studio, I'm a total foodie, and I love to travel to new places! Other loves include Penn State (my alma mater), The Real Housewives franchises (guilty pleasure), and generally pretending like I know what I'm doing (Fake it 'til ya make it!). Oh, and my husband Duzzy is pretty cool too.
How to Prepare for Hurricane Joaquin [LIST]
While Hurricane Joaquin's path is still uncertain, there's no need to panic here at the Jersey Shore. The best thing you can do is be smart, keep an eye on Meteorologist Dan Zarrow's storm updates, and be prepared for the worst case scenario, while hoping for the best. Here's some items you should have before the weekend:
Shops Need Your Business
The construction along Rt. 35 is absolutely necessary, both to repair the damage from Sandy, and to make sure this vital roadway can withstand future storms. In the meantime, the businesses that sit along the road are suffering, especially in the furthest reaches of South Seaside Park.
Displaced Sandy Students Will Get School Dance
More than 7 months after Hurricane Sandy, it's easy to focus on the newly reopened boardwalks, but it's important to remember the people who are still trying to put their lives back together, especially the children. Several local charity groups have come together for one particular group of kids.
Free Prom Dresses for Hurricane Sandy Victims
It's almost Prom season, and while many girls are starting to shop for their special dresses, some don't have that luxury. Two local groups are coming together to make sure that every girl affected by Hurricane Sandy can be perfectly dressed for prom, graduation, and other upcoming special events.
Spring Fix Brings Sandy Help and Concert to the Shore
This time of year a lot of college students are planning Spring Break vacations to places like Cancun, Miami, and Cabo... But some will be spending their time here at the not-so-tropical Jersey Shore helping Sandy-ravaged towns to get back on their feet.
Advice For Hurricane Sandy Survivors From New Orleans Resident
Few people can understand the devastation we're facing post-Sandy like the people of New Orleans. When Katrina ripped their worlds apart in 2005, it seemed worlds away. Now, we're closer than ever, and one Katrina survivor shares some advice.
Thanksgiving Event Planned for Displaced Families
So many families have been displaced by Hurricane Sandy and with Thanksgiving just around the corner (it's only a week away! Ack!) one local resident wants those in need to have a chance to enjoy the holiday.
Brick PAL Needs Volunteers
Many people who spent a good chunk of time volunteering after Hurricane Sandy have gone back to work and school, leaving many local groups in need of help.
