Jen Austin

I've been on the air in the Treasure Valley since 2009, and I love hanging out with ya! We're always chatting about fitness and exercise, relationships, and workplace experiences, pop culture news, kids, and other things that present huge challenges. Like online dating! Maybe Tinder will land me a fella here pretty soon. If you're a single mom trying to date hot guys, and also find time to eat, sleep, work, and exercise, I am right there with ya. We should form a support group. 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, including Lincoln, NE, Austin, TX, Baton Rouge, LA, Tyler, TX, Olean and Elmira, NY, and several places in between. Oh, and I've done radio news in Hawaii. 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 in the late afternoon I'm an Uber mom, taking them to gymnastics, karate, softball, or whatever is in season. Life is full, and fun! You are an important part of it. So thanks for listening, and be sure to drop me an email anytime you feel like it. Make it a great day!

Still, Idaho is probably THE most important state for the fast food industry.  Here's why.

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 Idaho involve stops at TGI Fridays, you might be noticing some changes.  The Boise location closed at Towne Center, but there's still a Fridays location in Nampa that may see one of these makeovers.

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?
