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!

So How Much Money Do You Make?

 

Um, yeah. Don't answer that ... yet!

I read an interesting article in the NY Times this week that said because so much information now is out in the open with social media, we may be entering a time when salaries aren't quite as secretive as they have been in the past.

Do you know what your co-workers make? If not, that may change soon.

Back-to-School Pics Dominate Facebook

I love looking at all the back-to-school pics on social media this time of year.

One of my sassy, fun (and kid-less) Facebook friends posted this on Monday, "Um...Did school start?" Haha! What makes you say that?!

Yeah...maybe we parents are guilty of overloading Facebook with backpack pics, but we don't have anything else exciting going on. Sideways wink!

Cowboys Are The NFL’s Most Valuable Team

If you bought any Tony Romo jerseys over the past year, you may have helped propel the Dallas Cowboys to another year of being the NFL's most valuable franchise.

And there's a huge gap between those extremely lucrative Dallas Cowboys and the league's least valuable team.

NFL Preseason Is A Big Tease

Anyone else ready for the NFL season to start?  Every time our favorite teams win a preseason game we're convinced our team is great and in good shape for the regular season.  If they lose a preseason game we say, "oh well, it's just the preseason!"

The games don't count, but it is fun to watch guys try to make the team and catch a glimpse of the team as it takes shape.

There is one experiment from the preseason that I hope the NFL decides to keep come September.
