Thank You & Goodbye to 100.7 The Wolf

It was a journey that moved me from Michigan to the Great Northwest and oh what a wonderful adventure it’s been. My time on the radio at 100.7 The Wolf comes to an end and I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunities I was given over the past 6 years. Along with change comes questions and I hope the video explains everything! xo.

When He Comes Back to Town, Better Hide The Wine!

Carly Pearce & Ellen Tailor at 100.7 The Wolf's Hometown Throwdown

The argument about women in today’s country music format is not a new topic of discussion and it won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. Are women being overlooked for less talented men? Should female artists be played alongside men even if their product is sub-par? This can go a million different ways and with the world being at odds over everything these days, we won’t be debating it here. What will happen is nothing but a little love for a song that’s piqued my interest and hopefully it catches your attention, too.

Carly Pearce recently went to #1 with her single “Every Little Thing,” and working in radio, I’ve heard it roughly 230 million times. (Ok, so I exaggerate but you get it.) Maybe I’m jaded. Maybe I’m hard to please. Maybe I expect more from female artists being a woman myself. Regardless, when I heard, “Hide the Wine,” I was immediately taken back to that moment every woman has gone through at least once (and only once if you’re lucky but yeah right.)

“Hide The Wine”

I heard you were back in town
It’s been a hot minute since me and you were hanging out
Yeah we had that crazy kind of chemistry
Where you get burned, don’t learn, don’t care, just reach for another match and gasoline Well knock knock, here you come a knockin’ on my door
But you’re gonna have to wait on the porch

Better hide the wine
And get it gone
Oh I better hide every one of them records that turn me on (lock ‘um up, lock ‘um up)
Turn up the lights
And kill the mood
Oh ’cause baby I just don’t trust myself with you
I better hide the wine

Well I know me and I know you
I better get rid of all the Two Buck Chuck and the high-dollar good stuff too
‘Cause baby if I don’t, you know what we’ll do
Oh oh with one sip, one tip, we’ll be sitting on the couch, you’ll be kicking off your shoes

Better hide the wine
And get it gone
Oh I better hide every one of them records that turn me on (lock ‘um up, lock ‘um up)
Turn up the lights
And kill the mood
Oh ’cause baby I just don’t trust myself with you
I better hide the wine

Oh I better hide the wine, yeah

Oh knock knock here you come a knockin’ on my door
But you’re gonna have to wait another minute on the porch
Oh no, no, it’s a dangerous thing pouring alcohol on an old flame

Hide the wine
And get it gone
Oh I better hide every one of them records that turn me on (lock ‘um up, lock ‘um up)
Turn up the lights
And kill the mood
Oh ’cause baby I just don’t trust myself with you
I better hide the wine
Oh I better hide the wine, yeah
Oh I better hide the wine

Hailey’s Halloween as…ME?!

Hailey and her very own Charlie!

We asked kids on the show what they were going to be for Halloween. Hailey text in saying she was dressing up as me. I couldn’t believe it! Mom promised her a stuffed replica of my pup, Charlie, to complete her costume. What Hailey didn’t know is that her mom & I were surprising her with a trip to Build-A-Bear. Be prepared for all the feels as you watch this…

Weight Loss Wednesday #14 – What Happened?!

This is the first Weight Loss Wednesday post in several weeks. Hell. Maybe even months. What happened? The answer is simple. Life.

A lot of changes are happening in my life. Granted, these are all good changes but change is always stressful. Weight loss is still a priority but it couldn’t be my #1 priority. Why? Because I was amidst contract negotiations with my job at the radio station.

While I couldn’t talk about it then, I had so many thoughts racing through my head. Do I want to stay in Seattle? Do I want to start over in another city with another radio show? Should I quit radio all together and move back home to Michigan?

On top of that, my lease is up which left me wondering where the hell was I going to live. Oh, it’s also the holidays and money is tight so how am I going to make this all work and still feed my dog? This is just scratching the surface but you get the gist.

I’m happy to announce that everything worked out just the way I hoped. I reached an agreement that I’m very happy with and am staying put! The Emerald City has always been my dream city and I couldn’t be more excited to call this place home for the foreseeable future.

Ellen Tailor Fitz in the MorningWith that said, I can finally breathe a sigh of relief! I’m less than a month away from my 30th birthday and my weight loss journey is back at the top of my priority list. I have a lofty goal that I’d like to hit and now it’s crunch time, literally. I’m hyper focused on my diet and working out with my trainer. I’m also working out at home thanks to Precor Home Fitness who’ve set me up with everything I need to make this happen.

Life happens. I’m not beating myself up about it. I’m just doing it. Thanks for your understanding and as always, thanks for following my journey!

I Got Naked in Public

Crazy to think that it was 5 years ago that I voluntarily got naked in front of strangers all in honor of my mom. Sounds weird, right? Here’s why I did it…

November 16, 2009 – Grand Rapids, MI (TAKE FIVE & CO) — At the beginning of October, Ellen Tailor of HOT-FM’s “Todd Chance Radio Show” embarked on an ambitious fundraiser to help local survivors of breast cancer. Her mother was diagnosed with the disease just over a year ago. After undergoing treatment, she is now a survivor. Tailor decided to challenge listeners, if they could raise $10,000 to help other survivors, she would “bare it all” and pose in the buff for an art class at Kendall College.

“She and other breast cancer patients are poked and prodded and feel so vulnerable when they are being put out there, that me doing this art class is nothing compared to what they go through,” said Tailor.

Just one month later, listeners had held up their end of the bargain, and $11,700 was donated to the Compassionate Cancer Care Center at Metro Health Village.

WZZM 13 was the ONLY television station allowed in the classroom while Tailor held up her end of the deal and posed in the buff for the class. Click on the above video to watch the experience and hear what her mother thought of her experience.
