Hi guys! Well, I must have clicked my ruby red slippers together three times because I’m finally home! If we haven’t already met on the boardwalk, my name is Shannon Holly & I’m a proud born and raised 3rd generation Jersey girl! After graduating from Penn State, I moved all around the country for my radio career. Now, I’m blessed enough to come back home to Jersey for good! When I’m not on the air, you can find me with my husband, Tony, playing in the waves with our 3 girls all day long! I tried to be the sophisticated mom who lays out and just dips her feet in the water, but I just can’t help diving in head first! I may have more sand in my bathing suit than most, but if there’s fun to be had it’s worth it right?!? Once the kids go to bed, count me in for red wine and a reality show marathon! I can’t wait to learn more about all of you! I’m also beyond excited to join my buddy Lou in the mornings waking you and the rest of New Jersey up!

I freaking love Jon Stewart. He was spotted this week in Surf City at Scojo’s Eatery which is not at all unusual. Jon is a Jersey guy and a regular on the Island. Of course we know and love him from his time on The Daily Show but in case you didn't know, he has one of the kindest souls…
Buying NJ’s most expensive house for sale: This is how rich you have to be to qualify
The most expensive house in all of New Jersey is still for sale at $37 million dollars. It is a pristine property in that no one has ever lived in it!

New Jersey is re-opening and I’ve got mixed feelings (Opinion)
How does a 100% reopening of restaurants, gyms, theaters, stores and amusements parks in NJ make you feel? Gov Murphy said yesterday that he will lift most restrictions by May 19th.
