Actress, comedian, and radio-host, Pam Stone, is best known for her 7 seasons on the hit ABC sit-com, 'Coach,' portraying Coach Judy Watkins. As a comedian, she won The American Comedy Award for 'Best Female Stand-up,' and made dozens of television appearances on such shows as "The Tonight Show," "Oprah," "50 Years of Funny Females" "Comic Strip Live," "Joan Rivers" along with 3 'Showtime' Cable Specials.
Following a self-imposed vow not to turn 40 in Hollywood, Stone followed her heart and her horses and moved south to a town of 2,000 in Upstate South Carolina where she was offered her own radio show ("The Pam Stone Show,") on 107.9FM, Charlotte, on the condition that she be allowed to broadcast from a shack behind her barn on her farm, picking up two national "Gracie Awards" for "Best Comedy Entertainment Program" along the way. "I'd do a segment, then run outside during the breaks and clean a stall or throw some hay to the horses." she explains. "Once, a bear came out of the woods behind the shack, the dogs went nuts and listeners heard nothing but their hysterical barking and my terrified whispers as I shoved furniture against the door for about ten minutes."
Now writing her syndicated column, "I'm Just Saying" (First Place winner in the 2012 SC Press Association Awards), Stone has selected her readers' favorites from 2006 and forward, compiling them into her first book, "I Love Me A Turkey Butt Samwich."
"It wasn't too hard to choose which columns people liked," Stone smiles. "They made it plain to me through email or stopping me at the feed store or the gas station. And each column is either true or based on a true story. That's what's so wonderful about living here~ you don't have to make up material, it just happens~ whether it be chasing a mule through a cornfield or being told you don't know what you're missing if you haven't tried a turkey butt sandwich."
When she's not avoiding such delicacies, Stone continues to perform stand up comedy, co-hosts "The Satisfied Life" (www.thesatisfiedlifenetwork.com), as well as teaches and trains in the equestrian discipline of dressage and writes a monthly column for 'Dressage Today' Magazine.
