Penny Mitchell grew up being utterly and completely enamored of radio BUT decided to go into nursing upon graduating from high school. The thought of going into radio never even remotely crossed her mind. She grew up never hearing a woman on the air, ever, in any capacity. In nursing school at Colorado State University/Pueblo she heard the new morning person at KILO FM and it was…a woman. And lo, the world suddenly had one less nurse and one more radio person. Penny’s parents never quite got over that. Penny’s first ever radio job was at a country station in Pueblo as the worst overnight jock in the universe. She has gratefully spent the majority of her almost-30 years in radio working with country music, which possesses the nicest artists and BEST listeners!
