Morning KIX: 6 a.m. – 10 a.m.
“I can’t believe they are still letting me do this,” says Randy Brooks about his work on KIX 102.5. “Every day I think they will have finally gotten wise, and come make me go home!”
Randy’s been with KIX 102.5 since he moved to Joplin many years ago. “It’s an amazing place. Especially since the tornado. I can’t imagine living anywhere else.” He’s been working many years in radio, but is also a musician and plays many instruments.
He has studied the Okinawan martial art of Kobayashi Shorin-Ryu since he was a child and holds a fifth-degree black belt and title of Shihan in that style. He teaches at his school here in Joplin. “Everyone at my house does karate,” he says. “It makes for interesting family disputes!” Randy is an avid fan of country music and loves that he gets to focus on his main passion everyday at work. “I’d probably do this for free if they didn’t pay me, but you’ll never get me to admit that…..hey wait a minute, you’re not gonna use that are you….HEY!”
