Meet Fresh 102.5’s Steph Duran
This week has a heavy, heavy sense of deja vu for me, in the best way! Almost 12 years ago to the the week, I first walked into 3100 Market Street (where Fresh 102.5 is located). I was a lifelong desert dweller…I’d grown up in New Mexico and then settled with my husband and our 2 kiddos in Phoenix, Arizona.
Then, in 2000, came this amazing chance to move to St Louis, join the successful ‘Phillips and Company’ morning show on Y98 and have a brand new adventure. We jumped! In no time at all, we were St Louisans…we bought our dream house in Oakville (SoCo, baby!!), the kids both loved their school and life was off and running.
Time passed and 5 years later, there was a change. As it turns out..there were LOTS of changes; leaving the Morning Show, going through a divorce, relocation and re-thinking career moves. All the things you must deal with, and just when you feel like there’s no way you can. You know.
But as Marilyn Monroe, the noted philosopher, once said…”Sometimes good things fall apart, so better things can fall together.”
And here I am….grateful that my kids are happy, healthy and resilient. So delighted at the turn of events that has brought me right back to this building and so many of my friends. I am excited–beyond excited–to be a part of this team once again. And this time, it will be even better!!
Life is funny, yes? Check me out weekdays on Fresh 102.5 from 9am to 2pm, helping you get through your workday!
