Call in to speak with the host
Join Emmy Award winning news journalist Victoria Gaither and Entertainment co-host Michael Kay when Vinny Hickerson, winner of NBC's The Biggest Loser stops by. This is our 200th show.
Tennessee born, Big Vinny was hospitalized on Super Bowl Sunday diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and cellulitis. Knowing things needed to change, he entered the competition "The Biggest Loser". After losing 184 pounds, making the final four, and was the runner up for the at home prize, a much smaller Vinny proposed to his girlfriend Lori Diaz at the Grand Ole Opry House.
No stranger to the Opry, Vinny and good friend Marc Fortney founded the band Trailer Choir in 2004. The group was signed to Show Dog Nashville, a label owned by Toby Keith. We'll listen to some tunes and hear all about Vinny's path to the top of the music scene. Till then, listen to Trailer Choir here... www.trailerchoir.com.
It's good to talk.
