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.

Maybe you've Googled your own name, or a few hard-to-find Pokemon characters more often than you've looked up a celebrity online.  That might be a good thing.

But if curiosity about Gary Busey or Vanna White's birthday gets the best of you and then next thing you know you're Googling, you're not alone.  There's one name that comes up more than any other in Texas, and I bet you'll never guess what it is.

McDonalds Might Add a Walk-Thru Lane for the Drunk and Hungry

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh,  cheeseburgers taste so good at 2am after a wild night out.

McDonald's understands, and rather than let the walkers clog up the drive-thru lane, they're testing out a walk-thru lane that the post-bar revelers would have all to themselves.  Think it will officially happen in Lufkin?
