Lori Crofford

I started my radio career in 1995 when I walked into the Broadcasting Department of WTAMU. In March of 1997 I started my first "real" radio gig at Kat Country 101.9. Then in 2001 I joined Mix 94.1 and I've been doing Middays ever since. I love living in Amarillo, because it is such a great city with great history and lots of fun things to do. In my free time, I love spending time with my son, reading whatever I can get my hands on and watching movies. Plus, being in radio I love music. I love everything from Classical to Folk and everything in between except Hip Hop, not a fan. Oh and I need a 12-step program for Netflix, I just cannot quit Netflix and my Netflix binges.
