Sharathon Success!
July 1, 2011

As many of you already know, I report traffic on 89.3 KSBJ in addition to Local 2.  Every year, a very special event comes around whereby listeners and generous donors help to meet the station’s financial goals. This three-day fund-raising event is called Sharathon which I’ve been a part of – ever since I started with the team back in 2008. The goals ensure the continuation of the ministry and all that it offers for the next year. Great news…goals were met, so a huge thanks to those who helped guarantee that lives would be positively affected. To donate anytime throughout the year: http://www.ksbj.org/features_details.php?Id=462&Title=sharathon-ends

Lunch w/Mike & Susan From KSBJ
December 16, 2009

Here’s something to be proud of…in 6-7 months, Mike has dropped around 38lbs! One day we were talking in between commercial breaks and he just said, “Hey Jen, I’m going to drop some weight. Yeah, I’m shooting for 2 lbs a week.”

He made it sound so easy and I could just hear the confidence in his voice. It was very ‘matter of fact’ like. And from that day forward, he didn’t look back. Weight watcher points was part of the secret and the other might have been the fact that he mentioned it on-air to thousands of people. Uh-oh, accountability on the line! He would update me every 2 weeks or so; never heard him frustrated even if he hadn’t lost any weight that week.

After a few months, I told him that I wouldn’t be able to recognize him, haha. So, we scheduled lunch in celebration of over 30 lbs that he’s shed. WAY TO GO, BUDDY!

Yes, it was planned – We were excited to take a BEFORE AND AFTER picture and tried to get the photos to look as similar as possible; nice job, right?

Golfing For Charity
July 19, 2009

Follow up posting to the entry: Jen To Attend Golf Tournament

I had a great time last week out at The Blackhorse Golf Course for the Sports Radio 610 Golf Classic.  I enjoyed the heat, but forgot SPF…so I was trying to catch as much shade as possible. It was all for a nice cause…to raise money for a children’s charity called The First Tee Of Houston. If you have a little one, take a quick glance at the link posted on previous posting to see if its something that could help your friends and family.

Here we are under the shade of the clubhouse…We had just finished a live segment and then Adam Clanton began reading material for the Sports Radio 610 break. He’s concentrating, isn’t he?

Believe it or not – I’ve never seen the studio, despite the fact that I work for KSBJ. Next Tuesday (after the holiday wkend), I’ll be dropping by around 9am to spend the morning there. By the way, if you plan on attending…there’s an RSVP link that you’ll need to go to. I look forward to seeing you. -Jen

Jen Surprises Ryan @ 104 KRBE
April 11, 2009

Ryan…from The Roula and Ryan Morning Show on 104 KRBE had no idea Friday morning that I would be walking into the studio. All he knew is that it was his birthday and that there was a surprise. Roula did a nice job keeping the secret from him;not even indicating that “it” was a person.

I walked into the studio at 9:30am with this cake in my hands, smiling…as we all said, “Happy Birthday.” I’m just hoping that on Monday morning, they dont throw me under the buss. 🙂

Tune in, email me; let me know.

KSBJ (89.3FM)-Jen returns to radio
December 20, 2008

ksbj-logo2

It’s been a little over a month now, since I stepped back  into radio. I get to work with Mike and Susan on their morning show at 89.3FM, KSBJ.

ksbj-show

Mike and Susan are SO fun to work with, but I don’t get to see them. They’re broadcasting from Humble, Texas in their KSBJ studios and I’m working from the KPRC building in Southwest Houston. Technology brings us all together though; I talk with them on-air using a mic that’s set up in an audio room close to my office. 

It took me a few days to adjust to the schedule. It can get really hectic now! I had to create a new work pace for my time deadlines. Instead of having about 7 minutes between reports, I now only have about 3 minutes to be accurate, versed and prepared for reports that are constantly changing. I also have to be flexible between tv and radio because the verbage is somewhat different. One minute I am talking to viewers who can see maps; the next I am speaking to people who are driving in their cars who have no visuals. 

There’s more leeway for conversation between Mike, Susan and I, too. That’s always interesting. Susan asked me the other day if I had mailed out my Christmas cards…Mike, in the past, has asked me about the traffic cameras and what all I can see…we’ll joke about the news too- light and funny for the ride to work. 

Well, here’s the link to their website; I just went through it. Feels like a breeze to browse through. Plus, they have a “search for lyrics” section…bios that you can read…songs playing now and more. http://www.ksbj.org/morning_show.php

So keep in mind that after watching KPRC Local 2 in the mornings, you can continue to stay up-to-date with traffic by listening to 89.3 FM, KSBJ. I begin reporting traffic on radio at 5:30AM through 8:45AM, every 15 minutes on the quarter hour.

97.5FM ESPN
December 7, 2008

 I stopped by THE FRONT PAGE with Fred Faour and Matt Dean last Sunday (11/30/08). We talked about College Football…of course, I was a little disappointed because I had a feeling that the BCS would push OU above UT. And… they did. Since OU and the Gators won their games today….they’ll most likely be playing each other for the National Championship title.  Here are some pictures from my visit to ESPN-Hou.

Put Up Your Dukes
November 8, 2008

A few weeks ago, you may have heard me on the “Put Up Your Dukes with Carl Dukes” show on ESPN radio. I surprised Carl and his board-op Matt, by waltzing into their studio one afternoon (October 22nd).  Julie, their Assistant Program Director set the whole visit up and it worked out perfectly. We talked about the NFL’s crack down on dirty play.

The debate?…Well, the NFL commissioner has stepped up fines for unnecessary roughness to make the game as safe as possible. While a lot of people agree that there is a clear need to curb some of the more dangerous hits in football, fans also want to keep the integrity of the game. Some dont want the guys to let up…they think that tackling and roughness is part of the fun of watching football.

I’m no expert, but I chimed in. Then I answered some other random questions that Carl asked, like what time do I get up and what about makeup? I’ll be dropping in again, hopefully before the year is over. So, stay tuned to 97.5FM, 3pm-5pm.

John and Lance, 1560 AM
January 8, 2008

 

What a treat! I was invited to hang out with John and Lance from 1560 AM, The Game. The guys are on from 7-11am and bring quite a bit of variety. There’s a good possibility that you have listened to them for your sports entertainment and information, as they are very well established here in Houston.

Last Thursday(1/10), I drove over to the station for the official meet-and-greet. John and Lance were professional, friendly and easy-going. If you missed us, warp back into time by listening to the archived podcast (http://1560thegame.com/page1_sub.php?id=153).

Thanks guys…for the laughs. I look forward to our next encounter.
