Gooooood Morning, Y’all! I’m Kristen Gates and I’ve been hosting mornings on 94.9 The Bull for over 15 years! I was born in Port Charlotte, Florida. My family lived in California and Colorado before we moved to Cobb County when I was ten years old. I started Berry College in Rome, Georgia as a pre-med student. I graduated with a degree in Communication and was hosting a morning show before I got my degree. Radio certainly wasn’t what I thought I would choose as a career, but I’m so happy that it became “my path” in life! I love guest hosting on television shows too. Ironically, I won my first television Emmy Award for a WSB-TV primetime special about CMA Fest in Nashville! As any country music loving woman would tell you, my family is my biggest achievement. “Mom” is my favorite role. My boys are in college now and I’m finding myself with so much extra time on my hands! Time to find some new hobbies! Put me in front of ANY football game and I’m a happy girl! I’m lucky enough to live less than fifteen minutes away from my parents and sister. I have the most amazing tribe of women in my girlfriend squad. My ex-husband and I are best friends (kind of weird for some to understand). And I’m grateful to be living every single day as a cancer patient. My doctors and oncologist keep my stomach cancer non-life-threatening. When I say I’m thankful for every day…I REALLY mean it. I was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2019 and I am proud to announce that I’m doing GREAT! With all of the health issues I’ve encountered, I try to remind anybody who will listen to be an advocate for your own health. YOU are in charge of your care, so don’t let somebody else make decisions for you. You know your body – YOU fight for it! I love seeing the best in people. I believe in the best in people! So let's all be kind to everyone and be thankful for our blessings! Also...GO BRAVES!
