JD Bio Pic


Hi My name is JD Hanks I was born and raised in Boise. I started High School at Boise High and then graduated from Timberline. In my family it was always expected that after graduation it was the orange and blue at BSU, but I chose to go up north and spend five glorious years at the University of Idaho. Yes, I said five. I was dedicated.

After graduating, I made my way back down to the Treasure Valley and put my Communications degree to use working for Magic 93.1. I started in Promotions and worked my way up to on-air weekend talent. From there, I forced my way onto the morning show where I began as an “intern”. I was used, abused, and humiliated all in the name of fun, and it paid off because my future wife was on that very show. So, if you are following along, I started out as my wife’s intern. Sounds about right doesn’t it? At least she knew what she was getting.

I absolutely love pop music and have no shame in admitting that I own a T Swift album, and yes, I did enjoy going to an N Sync concert or two. Don’t hate. I’m also a huge Dr. Who fan. My love for all things English also bled over to “Football”, yes football, that is what its really called. West Ham United is my team, so an average Saturday would be spent watching West Ham United and then tuning in to Dr. Who.

We made moves to Memphis, Charleston, and Portland over the next 10 years before making our way back to Boise. We came full circle leaving as a new couple and coming back married with two kids and a dog.

I am so grateful to be back home, doing what I love, and being able to raise my children with great family and friends. This is truly my dream job and I am proud to be a part of the team at Mix 106.
