Jen Austin

Hi! I grew up in a one-stoplight town in rural Nebraska and my whole family still lives there. The town really does have one stoplight, along with three churches, a bar, and a courthouse. I love going back to visit family, but I always look forward to getting back to Texas barbecue, fajitas, and taller buildings! I've lived in Texas for 18 years now, in Austin, Dallas, and here. I've worked in radio from the moment I graduated from college at the University of Nebraska, and I just love getting to talk to cool people like you every day! And I love seeing how you interact on Facebook too. I love feeling plugged in. Other things I love include sports, great restaurants, self improvement, and meeting new people. I love all movies starring Sandra Bullock or Julia Roberts, and all TV shows with Hoda Kotb or Blake Shelton in them. You'll probably hear me talk about my three daughters on the air, who are in kindergarten and preschool now. The oldest and youngest are separated by only four years. So busy working moms, I can relate!
