Well, live may be stretching it a bit at that time of the day... but she&#39;s up anyway. Maggie is a graduate of Fordham University, having grown up in Rochester, NY. She loves her job at APR - even dealing with the early hours. Just don&#39;t ask her any questions after 2PM, she tends not to make much sense after that time of day. After all, she&#39;s been up a long time by then. But hosting ME isn&#39;t all Maggie does. Thu, 23 Feb 2012 04:51:00 +0000 Jackie Howell 14515 at http://apr.org Maggie Martin
