Doris joined the KIX 101.1 staff in January of 2004. She has over 35 years of experience in country radio.
She is a graduate of Winona State University with a Bachlaor of Arts degree in Mass Communications/Radio Broadcasting. She spent twenty years at WAXX 104.5 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. She worked the overnight shift and also hosted a country classic program Sunday nights called Sunday Country Classics.
She owes her love of country music to her mom whose record collection had all the country artists. Doris even went so far as to type the list of her mom’s records on a Royal typewriter and put in a three ring binder.
Doris is the Midday air personality on KIX 101.1. She is also the Music Director.
Doris was born in Winona, MN. She was raised on a farm surrounded by chickens, pigs, cats and dogs (in that order). Her summers were hoeing rows and rows of watermelons, muskmelon and other vegetables. Those were sold at a melon stand and local stores. She is proud to be a farmer’s daughter.
