Amy was a Dancing With Prospect Stars Judge in 2017 and we told her we’d bring her back
again, but this time as a Star! Amy’s been a staple in the radio and
television market in Kentuckiana for over 15 years. A Louisville native and
a Western Kentucky University graduate, Amy never meets a stranger. She
loves people and loves to talk. She is sassy, loves having fun, does not
have a serious bone in her body and is very adventurous. Amy worked in
television for WAVE 3 TV and she hosted Shopping Kentuckiana. After
years in television, she became the morning and afternoon drive time voice
on several radio stations. She recently came back to the business after
putting her career on hold to stay home to raise her 3 boys who are now in
school – ages 14, 12 and 9. Currently Amy is the one waking you up with that country twang of hers on 97.5 WAMZ Corey Amy and Mornings, an iHeart Radio Station.
Amy has chosen to dance for the ALS Association, Kentucky Chapter, in hopes to raise awareness for a disease most people think affects only the elderly population. In fact, that’s what Amy thought it was until 3 years ago when her young, vibrant, 42 year old friend, Carrey Dewey, was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, ALS. This disease has no cure and the life expectancy is only 2-5 years.
In her own words, “I have watched ALS completely rob my friend’s family of the mother and wife they once knew. This disease attacks anyone. It shuts down your arms, legs, hands, mouth, every part of your body except your brain which is left untouched to ponder how such a brutal disease can be ignored and underfunded. It is completely heartbreaking. With no cure and a deficit in funds for research compared to other causes this disease will continue to rob families of their loved ones. Please join me as we help raise money for not just my friend Carrey but for everyone battling ALS.”
