Kara Bird

Kara BirdKara Bird grew up in Nebraska playing with her Fisher Price microphone, but never dreamed she'd work in radio. Kara went to college, took a radio class, and watched God set things in motion. She transferred to JBU and completed her degree in ’09. She’s thrilled to join the team again, as KLRC never really got out of her system. Kara loves photography, baking, and long conversations with good friends (especially if there’s coffee involved.)

8 Questions with Kara

How long have you been at KLRC?
Since December 2012

Tell us about your family!
My family lives in Nebraska, including my amazing parents, two big brothers I couldn’t live without, two fabulous sister-in-laws, and two hilarious nephews (and another on the way!) and a sweet niece who light up my life.

What are your favorite hobbies or interests?
I spend a lot of time processing life through reading and writing, and listening to great music. I love capturing the beautiful moments of people’s lives with my camera, whether it’s a special event or just an ordinary day. I also believe cookies can cure (almost) anything, and I love testing that theory on friends, family and co-workers as often as I can. :)

Favorite soda?
Not a huge soda fan, but give me a tall glass of sweet tea any day and I’ll be happy!

What is your favorite movie?
Too many to choose! Most recently, Les Miserables moved to the top of my list. I also love a good Bond movie, and on the opposite end of the spectrum, a good animated movie can almost make my day (Tangled, Up, Mega Mind, Despicable Me.) I know, right? So mature.

Who is your favorite artist that plays on KLRC?
David Crowder Band, Toby Mac, Tenth Avenue North, Switchfoot, Jars of Clay

Do you have any quirky habits?
I have the gift (curse?) of remembering movie lines and songs from musicals in great detail. It gets tricky when you’re trying to concentrate and can’t shut off the movie in your head.

What's your favorite part of working at KLRC?
That I get to spend my days working alongside a team of people whose passion is to share hope in Christ with as many people as possible, and who live and breathe the reality of that hope every day.
