When did you start at KIX 101.1: May of 2003
One thing you could not live without: Family!
Worst job ever: I used to set up for banquets in Spirit Lake Iowa during college. You can only set up a table and put table cloths on it so many times before it starts to get repetitive! The only good thing was taking some of the free SWAG that the groups had during their meetings! I still have a green folder thing I use to this day that I “borrowed”!
What is your favorite TV Show: Do I have to name just one?? I have more than one. The Walking Dead, Family Guy, American Dad, The Simpsons, Seinfeld, The Big Bang Theory and MythBusters. (Love me some Myth Busters!)
If you weren’t in radio, what would you be: I’d still be human…but I would be farming.
Favorite vacation spot: What is this “vacation” you speak of? Anywhere isolated and camping.
Guilty pleasure: Video games…for me it is so relaxing to sit back and kill some zombies or save the princess with Mario! (Yeah I know, I’m like 12 years old!)
Name one bad habit you wish you could break: Biting my fingernails
Biggest pet peeve: People who think they can sing…YOU CAN’T! So stop trying!
What was one of your most memorable radio moments: I have a lot. One would be when Mindy McCready agreed to marry me on the air. (That was long before her fall from grace and passing away) And the time when I was working at a radio station in Wisconsin and we raised over $100,000 after the 9/11 attacks and my co-host and I personally drove it to New York and delivered checks to The Salvation Army and The Uniformed Firefighters Association Widow’s and Children’s fund. We saw the devastation of the Twin Towers just 7 days after the attacks…it was surreal.
Favorite food: Steak
What movie do you HAVE to watch if you see it on TV:
Any kind of Comic Book Movie OR Cool Hand Luke
Coke or Pepsi: Dr. Pepper!!
Favorite song: Oh man…of all time?? Hmmmm…well, right now it would be Toby Keith Drinks After Work.
If you could meet one person, who would it be: Jamie Hyneman from MythBusters!
What phrase do others say you use too much: “I don’t know”
Celebrity crushes: That could be a long list too but I’ll narrow it down! Carrie Underwood, Sarah Chalke from Scrubs and Emma Stone.
Favorite month of the year? June
Is the glass half-full or half empty: That depends…did I drink the first half? Cause if so…then I think I am feeling happy…so it’s half full!
Dream Car: Already have it, Chevy Avalanche.
Favorite websites: KIXWEB, comicbookmovie.com, chevyavalanchefanclub.com
The world would not be the same without what: Gravity! Although it would be cool to float to work!!
