Hi my name is Laura Hardy and I’m the co-host of the Big Joe Show. I’ve been working in radio since 2006, coming from stations in Louisville, Elizabethtown and Bowling Green, KY before moving to my new home in West Michigan in late 2021. I’m a huge nerd- I love everything comic books and video games. I’m also a fan of cosplay and comic cons. When I’m not playing music, I love concerts of all kinds so don’t be shocked if you see me dancing at the intersection this weekend. I spend most of my time being sarcastic, going on road trips with my boyfriend and our dog, and riding my longboard. I’m so excited to have fun with you every single morning!
