Hey there! I am so excited to spend every weeknight with you on KHYT 107.5. Stop by from 7pm to midnight, and I’ll share the latest entertainment and music news, plus I love throwing in random surveys and studies. I’ll even be occasionally funny.
I’ve been lucky enough to work as a radio DJ in Bakersfield, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Tucson and Ventura. In my spare time, I can be found hanging out at home improvement stores, walking my dog or taking pictures. Follow me on Instagram: @dakota_fm
Hometown: Van Nuys, CA
How She Got into Radio: I had a speech teacher in high school who was obsessed with my voice. He thought I sounded like the actress, Holly Hunter. Since Raising Arizona was one of my favorite movies growing up, I thought it was an awesome comparison. I was always obsessed with music, although in those days it was Depeche Mode, The Cure and Nine Inch Nails. But his obsession got me thinking that maybe I could use my voice as a career one day. So, I took some radio classes at Moorpark College and got an internship at Y-107 in Los Angeles. The rest is history as they say.
Favorite Classic Hits Artists: Blondie, Prince, The Police and Pat Benatar
Favorite Sports Teams: I’m not a big sports fan, but I always find myself rooting for the Dodgers when it’s baseball season and the Arizona Cardinals when it’s football season.
Favorite Food: Sushi, Italian and Mexican.
Pets: My adopted Chihuahua named Emily. She is very sweet, and I’m still amazed at how lucky I was to find her.
