Thanks for catching me afternoons 2-7 pm on The Bull! I'm Polly Peterson and
believe it or not I was given my radio name at birth. (It's as if my parents
knew I'd end up on radio).
I'm back in my hometown and loving it! I lived here for the first 5 years
of my life before my family moved just north of here to Mediapolis, closer
to my father's grocery stores. I used to stand on orange crates as a little
kid in the back room of Dad's store, wrapping produce and pricing groceries
at County Fair Foods!
After studying Art and Mass Communications at Iowa Wesleyan University, I
worked in Burlington for five years, and it was the best radio upbringing I
will always be thankful for at KDWD. After the call to join KIIK Which
changed to KUUL in Davenport IA, I got an offer to experience the Green Bay
WI market on WROE. I was there for 5 years.. before returning back to
Davenport.. working for the same group at Clear Channel now IHeart Radio.
It was upon moving back to IA, that my WI stations allowed me to stay on and
do shows for them from IA. I still do! I also can be heard in Grand Island
NE and do work for The University of FL. I'm Busy!! As a voice over artist,
I do radio and TV commercials nationwide.
When I find time I love to go with my family to the Lake and do absolutely
nothing! I'm into great books and love biographies. Right now I'm reading
Benjamin Franklin's Biography.
Other hobbies I have include horseback riding and painting... and hearing
whats important to others.. I love being in the people business of radio!
Thanks for taking me to work and while you run errands! You can also visit
