Hi, I’m Mistress Carrie, the Purple Haired, sometimes bitchy woman and host of The Mistress Carrie Podcast, Cocktails In The War Room, and The Mistress Carrie Radio Show. I was raised in Leominster, where Johnny Appleseed, and plastic lawn flamingos come from. I was born into family filled with proud military members, first responders, and Italian bakers, so naturally I ended up on the radio at WAAF for 22 years (1998-2020). I’m a graduate of Newbury College, and Framingham State University’s Radio programs. I started interning here during the Grunge era, and after years of begging they finally said “what’s the worst that could happen if we gave her a microphone”? I’m a proud Marine wife, Harley rider, licensed skydiver, pug owner, Boston Marathon Tough Ruck finisher 4x, Boston Marathon finisher 2019, amateur marksman, military supporter (callsign: Narko), veterans advocate, guest lecturer, motivational speaker, baker, gardener, and all around thrill seeker. I was the first ‘non-news’ journalist embedded with US troops in Iraq (2006) & Afghanistan (2011), and I’m a proud recipient of the Commanders Award for Public Service (2x), and the Order of Saint Maurice (2014). I’m the owner and CEO of Big Foot First Productions LLC, and I also REALLY enjoy tequila!
