Vicky Gregor

Music Coordinator, Evening Music Mix Host, Air Check Host

Vicky became a big fan of 91.5 KRCC in the late 80's, listening to the mind blowing music shows that the station aired. She took the DJ Training Class in 1994, started volunteering, and said yes to every job that the station offered her (including overnight DJ duties!). Vicky became the Music Coordinator in 2012 and still can't quite believe her good fortune.
