Nikki West grew up in Tucson with four sisters, a love for lightning storms, exploring the outdoors, and music. At 21, she set out for adventure in Anchorage, Alaska. It was a beautiful crazy journey and where she got her start in radio. After 4 very cold winters, she headed south to chase the sunshine in Klamath Falls, Oregon and hosted mornings on “Oregon’s Country Giant.” About a year later, Nikki took a gig in Portland, Oregon where she stayed for 10 years and hosted mornings on a popular top 40 station becoming very involved in the community and volunteering with several local organizations. During her years in Portland, Nikki welcomed her incredible little boy Titus, into the world. This little guy’s first heartbeat played on the air, as did his gender reveal. When the pandemic hit, Nikki and little Titus moved to Boise where she hosted a drive home show on a country station and again became very involved in giving back to the community. After about three years in Idaho, and 15 years away, Nikki was homesick. Nikki and now 9-year-old Titus moved back to Tucson. While she loved and is grateful for her radio broadcasting journey in Alaska, Oregon and Idaho, there is something extra special about sharing her stories and love for community in her hometown and the greater Tucson area with family and longtime friends coming along for the ride.
