Jen Austin

It's fun to pick on the boys in the office, fun to play music, and fun to talk to you all day at work. Thanks for listening! I grew up in a one-stoplight town in rural Nebraska. My whole family still lives there and I love going back to visit them, but I also love Texas. Barbecue, fajitas, and great live music....it's the place to be. I've lived in Texas for 16 years now. Austin, Dallas, and here. I've worked in radio from the moment I graduated from college. (The University of Nebraska...Go Huskers!) I've been on a hundred stations at one point or another. I just love radio. Other things I love....let's see. Blue ink. Black bores me a bit. I love cheddar cheese and barbecue sauce and anything that the two happen to touch. I fall asleep in almost every movie I attempt to watch I have made it through Eat, Pray, Love and Mr. Wright. I like chick flicks. I have an awesome family and love spending time with them. You'll probably hear me talk about my daughters on the air. They're toddler girls who exhaust me, crack me up, and amaze me because I don't think I was ever that smart. I have two miniature schnauzers too. Thanks for stopping by. Now tell me about you.

National Site Notices Austin

Austin is a pretty cool city.  Most of us have spent quite a bit of time there, or at the very least we've visited Town Lake and seen the Stevie Ray Vaughan statue.

The Huffington Post gave some ink to Austin on Thursday, and mentioned some places that are a little more off-the-beaten path and perhaps ones we haven't seen.

East Texas Students Learn to Make Toothpaste

Ever tried to make your own toothpaste?  I would imagine it's not easy.  That's why we usually leave it to Crest, Colgate, and Aquafresh.

Some Lufkin science students have become toothpaste experts, and made their own!

You might think you'd have to be a high school chemistry student to grasp the toothpaste-making concept, but it's actually Lufkin fifth-graders that have mastered the art.

State Plans to Build New Bridge in Nacogdoches County

When we see the orange traffic cones go up, we know they'll slow us down and life might be easier, quicker, and smoother without them there.  But it's always worth it in the end.

The state of Texas has announced work is planned on County Road 706 in Nacogdoches County.
