Kaleb “Big Tex” Collins

  • Monday-Friday 10:00am-2:00pm

Howdy! I’m Kaleb (Alias: Big Tex), and I’m what you might call a “country-boy millennial.” I was raised on a ranch by a great big family full of cowboys and farmers and the kind of rednecks you hear about in Jeff Foxworthy jokes. I grew up listening to country music on the radio of a ’78 Jeep CJ-7 while I was riding through the pastures feeding cattle with my dad, and after I failed two semesters of chemistry at WT I decided that a real job was overrated, and that I’d rather get a degree in broadcasting. For reasons beyond my understanding the good Lord has seen fit to pair me up with an awesome wife who’s an amazing teacher and a dang good cook too. We’ve got three big lovable dogs that consider it their life’s goal to keep us safe from all the evil critters of the world while getting as many belly rubs as possible. I like to do a really wide range of things in my spare time; anything from working on my old firebird or building shelves in the garage to riding horseback through a pasture just ‘cause to shooting trap or playing cards or Halo with friends or just sitting back and surfing through YouTube. And every once-in-a-while I’ll get away from the station long enough to run up to the mountains or go watch a NASCAR race.

If you hear me on the air, give me a shout! It’s my job and my joy to play the tunes that make your day-to-day a little happier, and I love chatting with listeners.
