On Thursday I am lucky to be joined by two of my favorite people when Katie George is on WPBK (102.9 FM) from 7:30 to 8 a.m. and then Freddie Maggard will be on WKYB (107.5 FM) from 6-7 p.m. for Cat Calls from Mallard’s on the Danville Bypass.

George is a former national prep volleyball player of the year from Assumption High School in Louisville and was the 2015 Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year at the University of Louisville. She also earned NCAA All-American honors as well as Academic All-American honors. George graduated magna cum laude from the University of Louisville in three years with a Bachelors in Communications and minor in Sports Administration

Almost daily I get reminded of how many people listen to the Leach Report daily — and why wouldn’t  you with the job Tom Leach does on the air daily.

Tuesday is my day to join Tom and I will again at 9:40 a.m. But he may have set me up this week. I have to follow ESPN’s Shannon Spake, one of BBN’s favorite media members.
