After spending some time out of the area chasing the radio dream she has moved back to start a family with her two main men: Jager the mutt and fiance Rob. When she is not on the air Annie enjoys cheering her favorite Chicago sports teams (Da Bears, Da Bulls, And Da Sox), hiking, and exploring new fairs and festivals! (Anything Deep Fried she's in!) Annie cannot wait to share her life with you on air and is excited to be back in the Region doing what she loves!

Are you a bad tipper? What is usually your general rule of thumb... 15/18/20 Percent? I usually base mine on what I would want for a tip, if I was still waiting tables. If you have never served before, you should be aware most of the wait staff is working on an hourly rate under $3.Â Truthfully, most are counting on your tips to feed their family, pay their bills, go to school, etc. So who falls under the worst tipper category... Young Adults!! Check out the findings of a new study:
THE AMERICANS WHO TIP LESS THAN 15%Â
- Ages 18 to 34:Â 30%
- Age 35 and older:Â 16%
- Midwest diners:Â 26%
- Western diners:Â 24%
- Southern diners:Â 22%
- Northeastern diners:Â 15%
- Americans on average:Â 20%
