Hi! I’m Jeanne K! I was born in Morgantown, West Virginia, grew up in the little river town of Paden City, and lived in Marietta, Ohio, for 20 years working as Financial Manager for a law firm, before moving to Charleston, WV to work with West Virginia Radio Corporation.
It’s there that I was asked to be the new Traffic Reporter. I replied that I had no broadcasting experience, and the response was that an experienced broadcaster was not what the company was looking for, but rather someone who was responsible, offered a friendly voice, and was reasonably intelligent. I accepted the job and then a year later, I found my “reasonably intelligent” self working on the adult-contemporary WVRC radio station in Charleston, WV. And now I’m happy to be here on 100.1 The Wolf! I have aunts, uncles and cousins in Keyser and Piedmont, WV.
I have two awesome children – a son in Indiana, and a daughter who lived in Mexico for 7 years, but now also lives in Indiana, children-in-law, grandchildren, three dogs, and a fat cat. Various foster dogs from the local animal shelter spend time in my home while they await their fur-ever family.
My playtime includes learning to speak Spanish, playing piano and guitar, reading, and painting.
Traveling to Mexico when my daughter lived there was one of many great joys in my life! One time I asked the kids to take me to a restaurant I loved in Mexico. Growing up in a small town, who knew I would someday have a “favorite restaurant” in another country? Or turn out to be “reasonably intelligent?!?!”
