Hi guys! Well, I must have clicked my ruby red slippers together three times because I’m finally home! If we haven’t already met on the boardwalk, my name is Shannon Holly & I’m a proud born and raised 3rd generation Jersey girl! After graduating from Penn State, I moved all around the country for my radio career. Now, I’m blessed enough to come back home to Jersey for good! When I’m not on the air, you can find me with my husband, Tony, playing in the waves with our 3 girls all day long! I tried to be the sophisticated mom who lays out and just dips her feet in the water, but I just can’t help diving in head first! I may have more sand in my bathing suit than most, but if there’s fun to be had it’s worth it right?!? Once the kids go to bed, count me in for red wine and a reality show marathon! I can’t wait to learn more about all of you! I’m also beyond excited to join my buddy Lou in the mornings waking you and the rest of New Jersey up!

I was in New York City walking up Varick Street to my subway stop when I saw a young homeless man. He was standing near the stairs to the subway in winter with no shirt, hugging himself with tears running down his cheeks. He was crying and screaming out loud to anyone who would listen, “don’t you see me? I’m hungry and I’m cold…don’t you see me?”
YUM! Mail A Penn State Brain Freeze For Christmas

There's a very special house you MUST see this holiday season. My family and I walk there every year for the grand lighting ceremony (they actually had fireworks one year), yeah it's like that.
