Jen Austin

I've been on the air in the Treasure Valley since 2009, and I love hanging out with ya! We chat about fitness and exercise, relationships, and workplace experiences, pop culture news, kids, and other things that present huge challenges. Like online dating. Oh my goodness. Dating on the apps is time consuming, but if we try to meet someone in person it's stalkery and creepy, so we forge ahead. I was born and raised in the rural town of Elwood, Nebraska with one stop light, a court house, three churches, and a bar. I'm a Cornhusker, and graduated with a Broadcasting degree from the University of Nebraska, and then worked all over the country in radio. When I'm not working, I'm usually running. I try to run between 6 and 9 miles a day because I love that runners high! I try to eat clean too. I love shopping, going out for salmon and wine, seeing live music and comedy, and listening to all kinds of music. I've got three daughters, and that means I'm an Uber mom, taking them to gymnastics, karate, softball, or whatever is in season. They always crack me up and ask odd questions, and give the best hugs and make me realize what's important in life. Feel free to connect via email anytime using the form here on the website. I love hearing from you!

Boise Airport’s 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, Boise Airport may have a delay here and there, but overall our airport is 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.

Idaho Is One of Four States That Can’t Spell This Word

California, Connecticut, and Illinois have trouble with this word too.  It's a common word, but there is another one just like it that's just one letter off, and that trips us up regularly enough that we have to ask Google for help.

And if we don't get it right, it might change our perception of what happens at one recreational spot in Mountain Home.

Convince This Naysayer That Camping is a Good Thing

I just don't get camping.  I don't understand why anyone in their right mind would choose to sleep outside with bugs and critters, when there's a perfectly good bed and a hot shower at home.

Do you love it?  Excellent!  I'd love to learn from you about why it's so awesome, and offer up a few suggestions for places around Idaho to help you fuel your love for camping this weekend.
