Jen Austin

Hi! I grew up in a one-stoplight town in rural Nebraska and my whole family still lives there with three churches, a bar, and a courthouse. I left because I like lots of people and taller buildings, and I don't like cold weather. On those rare days in Texas when it gets snowy and icy, you'll find me inside Googling beach vacations. I don't plan to leave Texas now that I've been here for most of my adult life because the barbecue and fajitas are just way too addictive. I've worked in radio from the moment I graduated from college at the University of Nebraska, and besides getting the hang out with cool people like you every day, I love sports, great restaurants, self improvement, and meeting new people. I love all movies starring Melissa McCarthy or Julia Roberts, and all TV shows with home improvements or food in them. You'll probably hear me talk about my three daughters on the air, along with the challenges of being a single mom. I'm on several of the dating apps, because trying to meet someone in person these days is way too creepy.

Alligator Captured Not Far from Tyler

If you're a pet owner like me, you might let your imagination get the best of you, worrying about what all the unmentionables that could possibly get your pets if you let them loose outside. I mentioned to my spouse once that I worried an alligator might eat our schnauzers, and I was laughed at heartily. I supposed it was ridiculous because we lived in Austin at the time in the middle of concrete and pavement and it wasn't the least be swampy. But today I learn, it can happen in Texas.

TJC to Host Alumni Reunion

Okay, admit it. If it weren't for Facebook, you would have lost touch with just about everyone you went to college with. Thank you Mark Zuckerberg for making sure we don't lose touch, and for giving us the chance to continue to "Like" each other.

Social media keeps us all together on a daily basis, but Tyler Junior College Alumni will actually have the chance the shake hands and high five, and have some real live, face-to-face interaction Tuesday.

Country Star’s Face Carved into East Texas Field

It can’t be easy carving a face into a corn field. How in the world do they do that? Walking through the maze, you probably can’t tell all the paths are making a face or that you’re walking through an eyeball, but from the air it looks pretty cool.
