The Maney, Roy & LauRen Morning Show put Charlotte Pride on a National TV Show.
It was only two years ago when we were featured on TLC’s My Big Fat Fabulous Life. In My Big Fat Fabulous Life, viewers will get a window into Whitney’s life as she tries to find her way in a world that judges people by their size. She’s waging war on the intolerance that she calls “the last socially acceptable prejudice.” From donning a bikini on the beach for the first time in a decade to confronting online bullies who try to body-shame her, Whitney Thore is no longer letting her fear of people’s judgment dictate the way she lives her life.
Whitney worked with the Maney, Roy & LauRen Morning Show as an intern and field producer. We wanted to test her radio skills by interviewing and playing games with people attending Charlotte Pride.
