Country 92.5 gives you a BIG TIME special reason to listen on Saturday nights! Nationally known radio personality Whitney Allen hosts “The Big Time Saturday Nights” from 7 to Midnight every Saturday night on Country 92.5!
Whitney knew she wanted to be in radio when she was 5 years old. That dream was almost sidetracked by a longing to pursue veterinary medicine, but she discovered that the whole “math, biology thing was not in my genetic make-up--but talking was!”
On a trip to Eureka, California she heard a woman on the radio who “sounded like she wanted to steal my boyfriend, it was uncomfortable for me to listen to. I knew I wanted to be on the radio, but knew I did not want to sound at all like that!”
Whitney ended up getting that very air shift at KATA and stayed in Eureka for 2 years, “'til the rain got to me.” Then it was off to San Diego, where she worked at Top 40 station KS-103, Country Q105, and Q106. She later worked at KIIS “KISS-FM” in Los Angeles where she worked with Rick Dees, Ryan Seacrest and Blair Garner. When Blair Garner left to start the syndicated After MidNite show, he took Whitney with him to host ‘After MidNite Weekends with Whitney Allen.’
Whitney is thrilled to headline her very own show. “but I couldn't do this without a great team behind me, The Big Time saturday Night is a dream come true!”
When not working, she loves hiking, talking, napping, Mexico, Survivor and hanging out with her dogs Mattie and Flue, and her too many cats. Oh, and she promises she’ll “never sound like a girl who wants to steal your boyfriend.” She already has one of those. She hangs out with him a lot too.
