Meet Jodi!

You probably know our new blogger’s voice because she may speak to you over the radio every morning from the Murphy, Sam, and Jodi Show. We want you to get to know Jodi Carson in a new way, though. We are so excited to welcome her on to our blogging team.

Jodi is a proud Baton Rouge girl with Denham Springs roots. Although she went away for college, she returned to her hometown to make her impact in the world of media. Always interested in radio and TV, Jodi began in television news, but the seriousness of broadcast journalism did not fit her personality. Radio offered her more of an opportunity to be herself and laugh. She found a home with Murphy and Sam, and has been there for 20 years. She and Murphy decided to make their own life together 18 years ago, and their greatest joys are their two daughters, Taylor, 16, and Phoebe, 13. Jodi credits her successful working relationship with her husband to their beginnings as coworkers. They’ve always had a structure of professionalism while on the radio, so their boundaries are healthy.

Her fulfilling life as a radio personality and mother keeps Jodi busy, but she finds time to cheer on her daughters when they perform on stage. Her girls love theater, and their favorite thing to do with their mom is sing along to all their favorite musicals like Hamilton, The Greatest Showman, Grease, and Waitress. Raising teenagers is a challenge that demands emotional energy, says Jodi, but completely wonderful. Though she is still finding her parenting superpower, she takes each day at a time because everyday is different when raising teenage girls.

Jodi does want you to know her greatest passion aside from her family is fostering dogs. Dog rescue is her greatest hobby, and she has fostered about 40 times. The Carson house is full with five dogs right now, but they are still ready to foster when they get the chance.

We have no doubt Jodi is going to bring us some interesting stories and a great deal of wisdom.
