Cassiday is a proud Midwest native, born and raised in Stilwell, Kansas, a rural suburb of Kansas City, she is a Midwest girl at heart.
Proctor holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts/Theatre Performance from Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas. She also attended and studied theatre at Emporia State University, in Emporia, Kansas. Cassiday was the only girl on her college improv comedy team, which has translated well to her radio life, where she is often the only woman in the room.
Some of Cassiday’s favorite moments in her radio and television career have included rappelling twice down skyscrapers in Downtown Charlotte to raise money for charity, being “slimed” Nickelodeon-style for a promotion for the Atlanta Hawks, and letting a deadly tarantula sit on her face for a good 5 minutes to prove to her co-hosts in Austin that she never turns down a dare.
She loves to share stories from her life on air, and you’ll often hear her talking about her Italian husband Jerry (who she met on Match.com), her newborn son, or her “four legged kids” Ron and Asher.
