KFDI Personalities

KFDI Personalities LOVE living in Wichita. JJ and his wife Michelle live east, while Tiny and his wife Taryn live way west. Carol Hughes and her dog Buddy can be seen at a dog park or at one of the pet friendly hangs. Bobby Knight lives in the center of it all and Justin lives in Andover.

KFDI Personalities are INVESTED in Wichita. JJ is one of the most sought after emcees for charitable events. Carol Hughes won the Sonny Slater Award for service to the community from the Kansas Association of Broadcasters in 2016. This is presented to one TV or Radio broadcaster each year in Kansas. The KFDI Personalities truly believe that “we do well by doing good.”

Because our personalities live in Wichita, It is easy to bump into one of them at a restaurant, market, or event. Speaking of ‘bumps’… JJ and Tiny are on their way to 100,000 fist bumps. Make sure you greet them anytime you see `em and help them to their goal.
