July 2014 SanDiegoRadio Spotlight

By Joe Nelson
   The July 2014 edition of the SanDiegoRadio Spotlight features Z90's Sarah Beebe!
What is your current position/title?
I'm beyond thrilled to say I'm the Co Host of "Morton In The Morning" on Jammin Z90 XHTZ with Rick Moorten & DJ DRock!

What are your favorite parts of the job?
Every morning I get to walk into a room and work with 2 men I consider family, who make me laugh all morning long and make work an enjoyable environment every single day.  I love the fact that I enjoy waking up everyday to work with them!  


Who are your all time favorite musical artists?
The name Sarah Beebe goes hand in hand with the name Britney Spears!  Anyone who knows me knows that Britney Spears is my all time favorite artist.  I've spent years defending my loyalty to Britney so I'm used to the comments that come with admitting I'm a Britney fan!  But I still enjoy every new song, seeing her in Vegas or seeing her on the cover of a new magazine just as much as I did when I was 12.  It's fun to still have an artist that excites me & brings as much joy into my life as Britney does!  Besides Britney, I'm all over the place - Black Eyed Peas, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, David Guetta, Carrie Underwood, Tupac, Snoop Dogg (and Snoop Lion!) and since I did work at a classic rock station forever Guns N Roses is def a fav!


And your current favorite?
Oops I think I just answered that one above lol


Tell me about your personal side
Well I've been married for 3 years to the only person I've ever said "I Love You" to - Chip Beebe, we have quite a handful of a 2 year old named Shane who is the love of my life and 2 even bigger handfuls named Hef & Paisley - the Puggles.  I'm one of 6 girls & my mom still lives in the house I grew up in which is awesome!  My mom, sisters and I often travel to Haiti to support an orphanage started by our church which is one of our strongest bonds as a family.  My dad passed away in 2012 but I show my son his picture every day to try and keep his name & face familiar!  We call him Poppy :)  I'm totally an animal person, I can't watch any movie with any animals in it or I cry like a sobbing baby!  I definitely wear rose colored glasses and try to find the positive in every situation. 


What are your favorite restaurants?
Fidel's in Solana Beach!  First place we take any friends or family visiting from out of town.  I'm also a sucker for The Broken Yolk in Pacific Beach - lots of fun memories there and I love brunch & mimosas!  V's donuts in Cardiff has the best donuts I've ever had in my life!!!


What are your movie interests?  
Nothing scary or too intense!  Light hearted comedy is my fav!  Anchorman, The Little Mermaid, The Sandlot, Elf, Nightmare Before Christmas, Horrible Bosses, Top Gun - I know I'm forgetting some really good ones!  Oh well...


Do you have any hobbies?
My husband Chip & I are absolutely obsessed with scuba diving!  We even dove with 12ft sharks on our honeymoon after chumming the water.  So intense, total adrenaline rush & such a freakin cool experience!  And no, we were not in a cage!  He also shaped a paddle board for us so I've fallen in love with paddle boarding and I'm getting pretty good at building train sets with my lil man Shane.  I'm sure I'll turn into a Lego pro one day soon ;)


What are your favorite parts of the city?
Take me to any beach in San Diego and I'm a happy girl!  Mission Beach & Pacific Beach hold such a special place in my heart.  That's where I first lived in San Diego, met my husband and spent some of the best years of my life.  I also love downtown.  Anytime I go to a Padres game I try and take a minute to take in the view of the city.  I LOVE San Diego.  


Is there anything else you'd like to share?
Just that I feel so incredibly blessed to have found my dream job with my dream Host & Producer at a company I couldn't love any more.  I don't take it for granted for even a moment & thank God every day that I've found my amazing husband & work in this city where I get to raise my son.  It really doesn't get any better than San Diego & I just hope that I'm able to make someone's morning just a little bit better every day on their way to work.  If I can help people get through morning rush hour with a smile on their face, it suddenly makes that 3am alarm clock a lot less painful! 





Thanks for your time, Sarah!
