Josie Parnell is an avid fan of the Detroit Tigers and Michigan State Spartans. Born and raised in the Downriver/Metro Detroit area, she spent much time during her formative years at Tiger Stadium and developed a serious baseball addiction and a deep love for Tigers' baseball in particular. Attending Michigan State University from 2000-2004, she became a Spartan for life. Josie still misses her favorite pet fish, Heinie Manush, and is beyond thrilled to be the first female voice for the Motor City Bengals. Though she currently resides in the Sunshine State, her heart is, and always will be, in Detroit.
