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!

Who Do You Honor on Veteran’s Day?

Tuesday, November 11th is Veteran's Day, and chances are there is someone in your life you celebrate and honor because they've served in the military in some capacity.

For me, it's my Dad, who's a US Navy Veteran.  That's him in the pic, with my daughter at the County Fair a few years ago when she was 2.  That perfectly captures my dad.  He's the most honest, big-hearted, super-awesome human you could ever meet.  And he loves rural America.
