#MediaMonday – Brooke Hoover
Today’s #MediaMonday comes to us from Brooke Hoover, one-third of The Tim, Ben and Brooke Show heard every weekday morning on 102.5 KNIX in Phoenix.
Brooke, time to share:
Working with Tim and Ben is a little like trying to keep 8th grade boys in line but I wouldn’t have it any other way. They are so easy to work with and they genuinely make me laugh everyday! You never really get used to waking up at 3:30 a.m. but by Friday we’re all usually so tired that we get a little slap happy on air.
I grew up in Durham, N.C., and I started my career at WDCG G105 in Raleigh, N.C., as co-host and assistant producer for Bob and the Showgram for almost five years. Then I got the call to come out to Phoenix and jumped at the chance to have a new adventure and work with an iconic brand, 102.5 KNIX.
The highlight of my career by far is meeting, interviewing and attending Garth Brooks’ sound check. I spent a good portion of the day with him and I was mesmerized at the way he operates. His attention to detail is phenomenal and to see what an amazing human he is blew me away.
Our KNIX Secret Shows are amazing. It’s a concert but no one knows who it is until the lights come on and the artist walks on stage. We’ve had Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker and more. The excitement it creates is unmatched.
I’ve been married for over a month now and we met through a mutual friend at the Hyatt Gainey Ranch. Our first date was actually at our Jake Owen Secret Show.
When I’m not working I love to hike with my dog, Crash Davis. I love traveling and discovering new places in Arizona. My goal is to get to all 50 states and I only have three more left: Alaska, Minnesota and Iowa.
I wake up at 3:30 a.m. and I don’t have the patience to make myself a hot breakfast. I always grab a protein bar or banana. So, every weekend I try to go to a new breakfast spot. My favorite is in Tucson at Baja Café. The owners are trying to open locations in Phoenix and I’m so excited! I also love tacos. Taco Guild is one of my favorites.
A little-known fact about me is that I played four years on the varsity tennis team when I was in college at the University of Rhode Island.
