Biography

Hi. I'm Ana Lee. I'm a lifelong lover of music, radio, animals and nature... those are my passions. I started doing weekend air shifts here in the summer of 2011. I started my radio career in my home state of California at a little radio station in Ventura in the 80's. Then I moved up to a great rock station, KTYD in Santa Barbara and back down the coast to the legendary metal station - 105.5 KNAC - Pure Rock! I got to do some pretty fun stuff in the heyday of hard rock on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, California. I was born and raised on Southern California rock and folk music. I'm super lucky to get to play the great variety of music we bring you hear at Lightning 100. I am also Lightning 100's Public Service Director so you'll see me out at a lot of community events whether it's to raise awareness for animals, the environment or hunger or fundraising for the many worthy non-profits we have here in Middle Tennessee.My passion for animals started as a little kid. My parents took me to ride ponies and I was hooked. I bought my first horse when I was 14. I still have two horses that live with me on my little mini farm just outside of Nashville along with two cats and a little border collie mix named Archie that just wandered up to Marathon Village.Moving to Nashville and joining Lightning 100 is so far, the best decision I've ever made!

Laura Marling performs “Master Hunter” on Letterman

Laura Marling performed “Master Hunter” on my show on Monday, November 11 before her show at Marathon Music Works that night. I didn’t get video of it, but thought you might want to check her out performing it live on Letterman earlier this year. You can hear my chat with her and her Lightning 100 in studio performance in our Audio Archive.
