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:

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?

(From KSBJ Website) open house

As you may have heard, KSBJ has been under-construction since January 2009 with 1st floor renovations and the build-out of the 2nd floor. At 90% completion, we are excited to see the installation of the elevator and delivery of our furniture right around the corner. To celebrate the completion of our expansion, KSBJ is inviting our listeners to an Open House on Tuesday, May 26 from 9 a.m. – noon to be held at 1722 Treble Dr., Humble, TX 77338. To read more head to:

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

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


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.


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.

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.
