I’m Valerie Hiatt and I’ve been rockin’ the KRNA workforce for over a decade. Radio has always been in my blood, I may very well be descended from Sesame Street’s Yip Yip aliens (their radio bit still cracks me the f*ck up). When I was a kid and other girls were playing with Barbies, I was spending quality time on the farm with my Fisher Price tape recorder spinning up my own radio station. Now I’m doing big-kid radio and thankfully no one made me grow up for it! I spent my formative years in WORSHington, Iowa and have my BA in English from the University of Iowa
Yo! I'm Jaymz Larson! I come from the great state of Minnesota and have been in Cedar Rapids since 1996. You can catch me every Saturday 9a-2p on the Mighty 94. I love music and this is the perfect job for me! Besides KRNA, I also travel the country 27 weeks a year as a sideline reporter for "THE HEARTLAND POKER TOUR." The TV show is available in over 90 million homes right here in the good 'ol US of A. My specialty is Hair Metal. When it comes to Dokken or Poison trivia, I can't lose a bet
Hello all! Thanks for stopping by my page. I was born and raised in Cedar Rapids. I graduated from the University of Iowa so I have to bleed black and gold. When I’m not at the station or cheering on the Hawks I’m usually hanging out with my animals, a purebred Collie named Chico and a cat named Coop. Aside from the Hawks I’m partial to Chicago teams when it comes to professional sports. I love the Bulls, Bears, and White Sox. I also have a soft spot for the Los Angeles Dodgers (I’ve even been to a game at Dodger Stadium)!
What's up, Braski, it's Sharkansas, stinkiest fish in the Wapsi. I love to disc golf while listening to KRNA on my Radio Pup App. Sometimes when I hear Incubus while at Legion Park in Marion, the plastic flies straighter. Don't deny the S.C.I.E.N.C.E. of the trajectory. Been doing this KRNA radio thing on and off for a decade and a half and couldn't be happier that it's being done here in Cedar Rapids. OK...San Diego would make me happier, but it would take longer to drive through traffic jams to get to the disc course discourse
I was born in Davenport, Iowa, arriving in a cold, dark new world where a Barbra Streisand album was #1 on the charts and disco was in its heyday. After growing up in Maquoketa and graduating from UNI, I’ve been in radio off and (mostly) on since 2000. I’ve been in the Cedar Rapids area since 2006. Married with child. Been having a blast being part of the KRNA air staff since late 2012. Favorite KRNA artists: Pearl Jam (seen ‘em 33 times), Tool, Nirvana
