In the early months of 2011, Lisa contacted 700 WLW regarding the possibility of becoming a legal analyst. Over the next several months, Lisa came on-air as a guest for all of the talented full-time hosts. Lisa's witty and thought provoking analysis of current legal issues made her a preferred guest. In the fall of 2011, Lisa requested her own show and 700 WLW ran a contest called "Talk Show Idol." While it was a close race, Lisa came out on top!
Lisa's on-air schedule varies but you can usually hear her on Sunday afternoons. During the rest of the week, Lisa is a licensed and practicing attorney in Ohio and Kentucky. Like her website says, Lisa is a fearless, savvy, and aggressive attorney dedicated to defending victims of wrongful prosecution.
As the only female host on 700 WLW, she is the minority. Often teased, Lisa plays up the fact that she is the only girl in the locker room. Questions?? Email Lisa!
So here I am, back in Cincinnati after a long weekend in Las Vegas... actually I've been back for a few days and I'm just getting around to blogging. It's very hard to get back into the swing of the real life when you've just spent four days in the world's largest adult playground. Casinos, pool parties, night clubs, un-be-lievable shopping, and great restaurants at every turn! Before my first trip to Vegas I swore if I wasn't vacationing on a beach, that it wasn't a real vacation. Vegas, however, is like being in an awesome beach resort town, only without the beach, but you really don't miss it. The people watching alone is worth the paying for the plane ride out there. New York, LA, and New Orleans are all great towns for people watching but Vegas is in a whole different league. The people range from movie star beautiful to more bizarre than Gary Jeff Walker on acid. The pool parties are pretty killer too and something I didn't check out last time. I guess having scores of awesome clubs with gorgeous people dancing till the sun comes up just wasn't enough of a party for Vegas. Now they start the day in the early afternoon with those same gorgeous people (or maybe different gorgeous people, who knows?!) drinking and dancing the day away in the skimpiest bikinis this side of Rio. The boys are everywhere too! They must check gym memberships before they'll let the guys in too because every one of them was built like Magic Mike and his co-workers! Even the plane ride there was a great time. Look who I got to meet... the Hit King himself was sitting next to use on the plane. Pete lives in Vegas now and he's a super nice guy. I'm sure he gets picture requests constantly but he was great and didn't seem to mind one bit. I'm a huge fan!
Speaking of Magic Mike... ladies, who's going with me tomorrow night?! I sure hope there are still tickets because every chick I know is talking about going. How many guys have no clue what I'm talking about?! Well, guys, if you're paying attention to your woman, you'd know! I promise you she's seen the previews and took note of tomorrow's June 28 release date. The lines in theatres will be a great place for you single guys to meet women too so you have no excuse for not knowing about Magic Mike either. Here's the short story... Matthew McConaughey is the old, wise male stripper teaching the tricks of the trade to a young stud stripper who's stage name is "Magic Mike" and played by Channing Tatum. Every guy in this movie is unreal hot. They even got the big dreamy werewolf from True Blood in as supporting cast! I can't wait. Guys get eye candy movies all the time. Finally, one for us ladies!
That's all the blog I got for ya today! I'm out. In the meantime, do me a favor and "Like" my Facebook page or follow me on Twitter!
Survived another 3-6p shift with Gary Jeff Walker during your drive home yesterday. I actually had more fun than Monday. I think being hung up on by Tracey Jones is what did it for me. He sure can dish out the incessant sexual innuendos and inappropriate comments but ask one little question about whether his wife is into other women and the phone line goes dead! My guess would be she's definitely into other chicks... how else could she stay married to Tracey for so long?!
GJW and Tracey reminded me of this story I saw in the news today about a resigned-in-disgrace prosecutor from Wisconsin that attributes his fall from grace to addictions to sex and pills. Ken Kratz says his addictions cost him his "career, reputation, marriage, and almost his life." Kratz resigned after being caught "sexting" messages to a domestic violence victim while prosecuting her boyfriend. So I'm curious, do you all buy into the notion of "sex addiction" or is this just another example of a stupid man thinking with his smaller head? GJW and Tracey seem to be all about their smaller heads. I don't buy for a second that they are actually addicted to anything other than being jerks to their callers. This article claims to identify eleven celebrities with sex addictions, including Tiger Woods, Russell Brand, Amy Winehouse, and Bill Murray to name a few. I just don't buy it. I think sex addicition is nothing more than an excuse for bad, or at least ill-advised behavior, but I'm curious to know what you think. Despite my impressive "body of work" as a criminal defense attorney, I've yet to trot out this defense, but in an abundance of caution, maybe I shouldn't be so hasty to write it off as a bunch of BS just in case GJW, Tracey, or some other high-dollar celeb needs my services some day! I need comments people. Let me know what you think. Is this for real?
Speaking of Tiger Woods... sex addict or not, there's no doubt his golfing skills took a hit there for a while. In fact, he's just starting to show signs of a rebound. Did you know that despite his marital troubles and all the drama that's surrounded Tiger in recent years, he's still been the world's highest paid athlete since 2001?! Seriously! Made more than LeBron, Albert Pujols, Peyton Manning... everyone! Until this year that is. According to this article on Yahoo, Tiger was bumped back to the #3 highest paid athlete by none other than Floyd "Money" Mayweather! As in Floyd "I'm locked up for beating my girlfriend" Mayweather! Yes, despite serving 90 whole days in jail for domestic violence, "Money" made a cool $85 Million in two fights that took less than an hour's worth of work, combined! Before you feel too sorry for Tiger, know that he still raked in just under $60 Million. Not too shabby!
Before I get off the topic of athlete's incomes, know that the issue of women earning less than men is also quite apparent in sports. Only two women made the Top 100 highest earning athletes. Somehow, Danica Patrick wasn't one of them. This chick is smokin' and should make $100M on looks alone, not to mention left turns at a high rate of speed. No, the only two women to make the list were Maria Sharapova who came in at #26 with just under $28M and some chick named Li Na who made $18.4M and ranked #81 despite the fact I have no clue who she is or what she plays. Gotta be golf or tennis, I suppose, but who knows. Sharapova, I can see that. She's gorgeous too. But here I am sounding like a guy, thinking female athletes can only make $ if they're hot. See?! Discrimination exists!
OK, so if there's one thing I've learned from radio blogging god, Mo Egger, it's to always throw in a video of a scantily clad hot babe. I presume this is just in case someone fails to find your blog amusing. Considering I've wandered away from sex addiction and started trying to talk sports, that's entirely possible. So here's a video of Kate Upton! She can Dougie. She can also Cat Daddy. If you don't know what that means, you're totally missing out. I can only hope I run into her at a topless pool in Las Vegas this week! If you don't hear much from me for a few days, that's why. Enjoy!
Actually that's a total lie. I had every intention of blogging naked when I woke up today just to see what kind of perverted reaction it would get from our male fans. Then I had to suffer through three freakin hours of co-hosting the drive home timeslot with WLW's sleaziest on-air "personality" Gary Jeff Walker. By 6pm tonight I wanted to shower in hand-sanitizer. The guy is a bigger turn off than a hotel room full of bed bugs. So what is sadomasochistic me doing tomorrow afternoon?! Another 3-6pm show with Gary Jeff, the only man I know that can make Kenny Powers look sexy.
Seriously, I feel like I'm being hazed by being made to work with Gary Jeff because I'm the new kid on the block here at The Big One. Or maybe I just ticked off 700's scheduling gods. Oh well, I'll just have some fun with the callers and convince myself I've been paired up with Gary Jeff because I'm the only on-air personality with enough talent to keep listeners from changing the station. In the meantime, however, no nakedness. Sorry.
Let's change the subject! Shall we?
Good news for all you tweeple out there... I've broken down and joined the Twitter universe! I'm still getting accustomed to it so don't expect me to be all Mo Egger-awesome with the tweets right away. You can follow me @lisawenzelwells ! Hopefully our web page gurus will get my Twitter link here on my blog soon (HINT!)! Of course you can always check me out on Facebook too!
There's a lot going on in the news tonight... Roger Clemens - NOT GUILTY! Saw that coming a mile away!; Things not looking nearly as good for Jerry Sandusky (Thank God!); Obama's pick for ambassador to Iraq lays an egg over some scandal I haven't heard the details about yet; Rodney King dies in his own swimming pool; Microsoft makes play for the tablet market that's been dominated by Apple's iPad; a foster mom (who falls far from the hot for teacher female sex crime defendants we've seen lately) is indicted for rape; a 18 year old is charged with killing his step-dad on Father's Day; and unfortunately the Reds win streak just came to an end with a 1 run loss to the Indians (see, I'm trying)!
Please tune in tomorrow 3-6pm! Better yet, call in so I have someone intelligent to converse with rather than my co-host and I'll be glad to talk with you on your drive home!
