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.

Some April Fool’s Day Pranks Are More Creative Than Others

For some really creative April Fool's Day joke ideas, all we have to do is watch an episode of The Office.  Remember the episode where Jim feeds Dwight an Altoid every time he hears the Windows login chime, to get him to try to salivate like Pavlov's dog?  Some pranks take more time than others to set up.

Here's the history behind April Fool's Day, and more prank ideas so you can get your kids and co-workers good on Friday.

TGI Fridays Is Making Drastic Changes

If your road trips across Texas involve stops at TGI Fridays, you might be noticing some changes.

By the looks of the new design, TGI Fridays wants to create a place that looks like one big college study hall, or as one blogger puts it, "hospital cafeteria."  Instead of dark and eclectic, the makeover goes for light and clean.  What about the food?

There Are Reasons To Be Happy About Taxes in Texas

Here comes that tax deadline, which means it's peak demand time and accountants might be charging more than they did earlier in the tax season.  It's true.
