Get to know Hill Bailey…
Hill got her start in radio on the U of A radio station in 1998, and moved to Colorado in 2000 to work in radio full time. 10 years away from Tucson; Hill was doing a morning show in California when she was diagnosed with an ovarian disorder. She decided to move back to Tucson to be near her family and to get healthy. At one point she was over 200 pounds due to the illness. She realized quickly that no matter what the reason for weight gain- everyone has to do the same amount of work to lose it. So, she studied and worked hard to lose the weight and become a Personal Trainer. For the last 3 years Hill has worked as a trainer and manager of a gym here inTucson. Her goal is to write and publish a diet and workout plan for women with ovarian disorders.
2 years ago Hill took a chance on match.com, and met her husband. He is an exercise physiologist with UMC. Although helping people with health is a passion for Hill; her love of radio is stronger. After countless email pleas and cookie basket briberies, Hill was adopted into the K-HIT family, and couldn't be happier!
Although Hill and her husband do not have kids, she is a mommy to 2 pit bulls- Butters and Kona. Every year they get to dress up for Halloween and wear Santa PJs for Christmas. Hill swears they like it.
