The Morning KYCK Off

Vera the Bus Driver. That’s how it started for me. Vera had the only School Bus with a Radio and we would listen every morning on our way to school. I was 9 years old when I told my parents I wanted to be on Morning Radio. If I remember they laughed and said “sure, son.” Well, who is laughing now?? (Hopefully you)

I started working in radio at 16 and have been on the radio more than half of my life. I love laughing and having fun. I love being part of a community that comes together and helps out others. I love my job!

When I’m not working, I hang out with my beautiful wife Jules and my awesome Basset Hound, Eugene. We enjoy hanging out in downtown Grand Forks and going to the dog park. There is so much about this community that we enjoy, from the kindness of the people to the fantastic shops.

If you see us out and about, come up and say hi! We love meeting folks.

Dream Big. A theory I have always lived by. I am a small town girl from Thompson, ND with a soul for entertaining the size of the moon. I have always tried to make sure everyone around me was laughing, smiling and not doing idiotic things, although I haven’t always been able to stop them lol. I’m the proud mom to a sweet boy who has mastered the eye roll and sarcastic come backs, where I am constantly reminded of the old saying “he IS your child”. We have a fat black lab named Bella who is lucky she still has her sweet puppy face.

I have told my son that he will be to every state before he graduates, so we love to travel. For any other parents out there, do not promise your child 50 trips before they are 18, they tend to not remember the first 4 years of their lives and claim they didn’t get to go anywhere. (insert eye roll)

I have been obsessed with country music since I started staying at my grandparents for a week at a time every summer. My grandmother would always have her little radio on and we would play cards in the morning and sing. I remember thinking how cool it would be to be the one who got to pick the songs and be a voice that people relied on every day. Luckily for me, that opportunity arose and I snatched it up as quickly as I could. I like to think that my grandmother is watching down on me, thinking about how I finally did it!

So here is to another adventure in this beautiful thing we call life.
