The Anchor Mom – What is Claudia Coffey up to?

Family Adventure Day

Claudia Coffey recently contacted me to do a piece on what it’s like to be a professional mommy blogger and aired it on the WHAS11 News. While we were chatting, I welcomed her to write for because I have gotten to “know” her via twitter mostly and have seen that she does a lot for the community and during her busy life, her son is always her first priority.  I thought, wouldn’t it be nice to have her perspective on  Here’s Claudia’s first piece! – Stephanie

When Stephanie asked me to write a guest blog, I thought at first “What in the world do I have to share with readers?” Well, I love my son and all the fun and sometimes free things we get to do together. So why not give you a peek into our lives . And no it’s not that different from yours. Yes I’m on TV and people stop me in Walmart, Kroger and at gas stations. Please keep doing it, because I want to meet our viewers. What’s funny is that Jack is soooo over it. When people approach us, he usually interrupts and says stuff like,” I’m five and I’m cool,” Seriously. So, our life is a fun adventure but not too different from anyone else’s.

From time to time I’ll pass along an idea, deal, event or place that we’ve tried and see if you like it as well. So here’s what we’re doing this weekend. Saturday June 16th , I will be at Mike Lennigs. Don’t they have the best fish? All day, they will have bands playing as part of their Music Fest. It’s also U of L day so wear your red. Go Cards! The event is free to public so stop by. I’ll be there at 6pm to talk about my fundraising campaign for the Kentuckiana Heart Walk. Jack is the face of this year’s campaign and we have set a lofty goal of raising $2,500. The walk itself is September 22. I’ll raffle off a gift package that will support our Heart Walk Team as well stick around to meet our viewers, sign some autographs and take pictures. Hope you can make it. To donate to the Heart walk or start your own fundraising team go to my website at To find out more about the free entertainment all weekend at Mike Linnigs go to their website at

  • I got to meet Claudia and Jack at the Go Red For Women lunch in May. She is amazing and he is so full of energy! Love what she is doing to raise money for the AHA and fellow survivors like myself.
