Hi! My name is Kari Jakobsen and I’m so happy to be in Central New York. I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest (Go Seahawks) and went to college at Washington State University (Go Cougs)! I’m definitely a big football fan, but I’m really excited to go to more hockey games and check out the Utica Comets! I’m a music lover through and through, no matter the genre, but country is where my heart is. Some of my favorite artists are Brad Paisley, Dan + Shay and Jillian Jacqueline. Because I’m new to the area, I’m on the hunt for things to do, places to eat and bars to grab a drink. If you have any recommendations, feel free to give me a ring during your workday at Big Frog 104.
