Nikki grew up in Tucson, Arizona with four sisters, a love for lightning storms, exploring the outdoors, and music. At 21, she set out for adventure in Anchorage, Alaska. It was a beautiful crazy journey and where she got her start in radio on KFAT 92.9. After 4 very cold winters, she headed south to Klamath Falls, Oregon, and hosted mornings on “Oregon’s Country Giant”, 92.9 KLAD. Shortly after Nikki landed in Portland, Oregon where she stayed for 10 years. Nikki hosted mornings on Live 95.5, becoming very involved in the community and volunteering with several organizations. During her years on Live, Nikki welcomed her incredible little boy Titus, into the world. This little guy's first heartbeat played on the air, as did his gender reveal. You will occasionally hear his voice on 104.3 WOW Country helping his mama when he gets to hang out in the studio. Nikki has been dating a native Idahoan for years now and came to visit and explore the beautiful gem state many times before making the move permanent. After visiting, exploring, and connecting with the Treasure Valley, Nikki knew this was where she wanted her and Titus to be. Listen to Nikki talk about her Idaho adventures and other great local tidbits weekdays from 3PM to 7PM. You may even hear 8-year-old Titus on from time to time. AFTERNOONS – 3 PM-7 PM
