Hi! My name is Nicole Hanks. I was born and raised a Carolina girl, but found my way to Boise at the age of 21 and never knew what I was missing. I fell in love with the city and the people as soon as I arrived. I met my husband who was born and raised here. We moved around the country a few more times for radio jobs, got married, and had two kids, before making our way back to Boise about a decade later. I vowed the day that we left that we would be back to set some roots and raise our children in this amazing, most beautiful city I have ever seen (and remember, I’ve seen a few). It only took us 10 years but we are finally here and not going anywhere! I am a pop culture fanatic, a Pinterest addict, a Lifetime movie lover, and reality show junkie at heart. I love photography, spending time outdoors with my family, and you will usually catch us completing a DIY project or two on the weekends. I am so grateful to do what I love every day and proud to be a part of the Mix 106 radio family!
