Crusin In Cruces

KC Counts

KC just celebrated her 20th year in radio! She began her career as a fetus while attending Eastern New Mexico University in Portales. Her paternal grandmother’s family homesteaded there in 1912, the year New Mexico became a state! Two of “Mema’s” sisters and many other relatives still live there. KC’s Las Cruces roots run deep too as her maternal Great-Grandfather, Dr. Jerome Love was one of the Organ Mountain ranch owners. He traveled a large region in his mobile surgical unit (supposedly the first of its kind) and even made his way to Portales where “Mema” was – she was even acquainted with him long before the two families would merge in 1970 when KC’s mother and father married in El Paso just before he went to Germany during the Vietnam War. KC graduated from Burges High School (almost with honors) where she enjoyed a year on the flag corps, a year as a cheerleader and three years in theater and speech and debate (which is probably why she’s so darn argumentative). KC met up with Mike McKay in 1998; their first show together was on April Fool’s Day that year. They worked together until 2004 when Mike began at 101 Gold and KC began reporting news on KVIA. The opportunity to form Bravo Mic Communications and purchase 101 Gold brought KC into the Las Cruces radio market and enabled Your Morning Show to get back on the air! Hear KC with Mike weekdays 6-10 right here on Southern New Mexico’s #1 radio station. She would love to catch up with you on Facebook (can hardly keep her away from it according to her poor husband of 18 years). Clint works as a Lieutenant in the El Paso Fire Department and hopes to continue his flight training to one day fly commercially. We don’t talk about that too much because it makes KC a little nervous (you remember Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valenz, The Big Bopper, Jim Croce, Otis Redding, John Denver…you get the idea). Questions for KC? Feel free to email

Reynolds mug



This yahoo looks pretty surprised that he got arrested for walking into a crowded Bryan, Texas movie theater and waving his hand like a gun while making shooting noises.

Not surprisingly, the crowd thought he meant business and ran for the exits. Darrell Reynolds was arrested in the movie theater lobby and faces disorderly conduct charges. We just hope he’s not a breeder
