She’s been bringing you the latest music on B93 for 15 years, but has been in radio even longer than that. Rebecca hails from Andrews, Texas, so how did it all start?
“I went with a family member to a job interview at a radio station and while waiting in the waiting room, I was approached by the Program Director. I walked out with a job while my family member did not.”
Along with bringing the latest entertainment news and music on the radio waves, you’ve ventured into the world of television, right?
“I’ve been in over a dozen TV commercials and I once hosted a Hispanic-music television show.”
Co-hosting the Leo and Rebecca in the Morning show, you’ve been part of several crazy antics, but what is the craziest thing you’ve done?
“Static line skydiving!”
If that was the craziest thing, what is most embarrassing thing you have ever done?
“Definitely the night I fell at Graham’s, in a skirt, and everyone saw my business.”
If you weren’t in radio, what do you think you would be doing as a career?
“I was going to college to be a teacher when radio fell into my lap, so probably a teacher.”
One person recently won millions of dollars in the lottery. If you were given that much money, what would you spend it on?
“If I won lotto, I would take care of family first, then build a fabulous home or homes in different countries. I’d travel and hire a nanny to help take care of the baby I’m about to have!”
What is your favorite movie?
“‘When A Man Loves A Woman’. Gets me every time!”
What are some of the phone apps you can’t get through the day without checking?

What are your hobbies?
“Anything with my boys. They play all sports and I volunteer with their school and extracurricular activities all the time.”

“Janet Jackson or Mariah Carey.”
Of all the places you’ve been, what is the best place you have ever traveled to?

On a more personal level, what is your favorite thing about yourself?
“I think I am loyal & trustworthy. I’ve had the same group of besties since childhood”
Do you have any pet peeves?
“People who are vain and selfish. You will usually only find tons of (duckface) pics of themselves on their Facebook page. LOL.”
Who is/are your heroes?
“My heroes are my parents. My father passed years ago but was the perfect example of a hardworking, loving dad. My mom is my rock. The older I get, the more I appreciate her.”
