Laura Daniels

I'm Zulu, Queen of the Dwarf People (ok that’s from the Golden Girls). I’m Laura Daniels, host of the Mix Morning Rush, Monday Thru Friday, 6am to 10am. I'm from Jamestown, NY, and I started in radio in Albany in 1998…Been with Townsquare Media Buffalo since November, 2012. I love music and I love to entertain. My favorite thing about Buffalo? Hands down – the people. (food and beer tents, a close 2nd/3rd). Favorite movie, favorite quote from that movie? This question is just not fair. Far too many. “Caddyshack”, “Dumb & Dumber”, “Star Wars”, anything NOT “The Notebook”…
