Hey there, I’m Nikki West. I have been fortunate enough to do radio in Alaska, Oregon, Arizona and Idaho over the last 15 years in just about every music genre possible. I have met insanely talented people and had some amazing adventures including skydiving, flying in an F-16 with the Thunderbirds, Hot Air Ballooning and serving the communities I have worked in. I am a mama to a sweet 9 year old boy who grew up around music and radio and is the least shy child you will ever meet. I also have an incredible 13 year old pup who we call pumpkin. I love life and do everything I can to share great music, good vibes, kindness and a little humor to everyone’s day.
