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.

Lufkin Is Becoming A Better Dog City

The dog park at Grace Dunn Richardson Park has been open for awhile now, and it makes Lufkin more dog friendly than it used to be. It's right off of South Redditt Drive, and it's a good place to exercise the pups.  But does it make Lufkin one of the best dog cities in the US?

Summer Makes Me Wish I Was a Kid Again

Summers were so much fun as a kid, with camps, swimming, and sprinklers, and lots and lots of ice cream.

As an adult, there's no break from work and there can be more to do juggling the kids' schedule, and we lose the magic!  But here's a way to get it back.

Texas Lakes Are Calling: Free Fishing Day

There's a day coming up that gives us all the chance to fish without worrying about pay the license fee.  Even if we don't catch anything, it's still a great opportunity to relax by the water, have some cold beverages, and eat snacks.  And the Texas lakes will be full and ready after all this rain.

Texas’ Airport Wait Times Could Be Worse

There's so much more to flying than sitting on the plane, reading on your device, and eating peanuts.  A lot of flying involves waiting. Waiting for the line to move so you can board the plane, waiting for the plane to leave the gate, and waiting for the plane to reach the gate once the plane lands.

It turns out, Texas airports may have a delay here and there, but overall our airports are a lot speedier than other airports across the country. If you hit these other airports this summer, prepare to sit and wait.

June is the Best Month To Buy These Things

Full disclosure.  I spent $50.20 on an order of granola yesterday because they offered free shipping on orders of $49 or more and I'm so addicted to the stuff I justified buying 8 bags of it and some chia bars while I was at it.

Trust me when I say I will sniff out the best deals for you.  I won't make you eat granola through 2017, but I will point you toward the best deals on tools, workout clothes, and lingerie.  June is the best time to buy these things I hear.
