Meet The Host

Vernice Burroughs was born in Chicago in 1964 and was raised there until her high school years.  Her family relocated to San Diego upon her late fathers orders in the Military in April 1980.  Married 35 years to her high school sweetheart David Burroughs Sr. in 1982, together they are the proud parents of five extraordinarily intelligent, gifted and talented young men and have five beautiful grandchildren as well.

Her current field of profession is in the Title Insurance industry of which she’s been a part of for 33 years.  Although corporate America has always been her goal from childhood she was introduced to the world of broadcasting and quickly fell in love with the broadcasting community while being interviewed during her featured part as Dorothy in the famous stage play show entitled “The Wiz” which was presented in the year 2000 at San Diego’s Spreckles Theater. 

She loves God, loves to sing, loves to laugh, has a passion for reading and loves to engage in conversations that inspire people.  She brings to the table 52 years of her life’s experience which would entail what she’s learned while being a daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend and minister along with over 20 years of experience serving in various capacities in different communities.
