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!
