Weekdays 6-10 AM
Calling the Outer Banks Home for the better part of his adult life, Christian came to the beach one summer to work while in college, and basically never left. A self-proclaimed, “nice, fun at a party” kinda guy, he always has a radio on and continues to be a treasure trove of mostly useless, yet somehow useful knowledge. Recently welcoming a daughter into the world with his girlfriend Amanda, 2020 has been full of surprises. You can catch him as a performing musician around town, or on-air weekday mornings from 6-10 am.
Weekdays 2-7 PM
This Iowa native claims he was attracted to a career in radio mostly because of the flashy, form-fitting uniforms that he gets to wear and the early hours allow him to pursue his dream of caddying on the PGA Tour. His favorite things, not necessarily in the correct order, are pizza, beer, his two daughters Kaitlyn and Kamdyn, his wife Katie, and the family dog Kinnick. You can hear him weekdays from 2-7 PM on BIG 94.5.
Weekends 10 AM-2 PM
Kidd Kennedy brightens up your weekends on BIG 94.5. Growing up in Iowa, the Kidd began his radio career while attending Drake University in Des Moines. Several years after graduating, he moseyed down to Texas for six months, (which he says seemed as if it were six years), then headed east where he served the U.S. Congress as a Communications Director. While in Washington, DC he also kept his fingers in broadcasting where he did voiceovers on numerous state, regional and national television and radio commercials and also narrated a variety of programs for Voice of America.
In Washington, the Kidd met the love of his life Shelley, with whom he just celebrated their 38th Anniversary. After 13 years in the nation’s capital, the two moved to the Outer Banks to open a group of successful Made In The USA boutiques and welcomed their daughter, Hannah, into the world. During that time, the Kidd kept his fingers in broadcasting working in OBX radio, including at Beach 104, 991. The Sound, and WCMS, among others, while also voicing commercials for local and regional television companies.
Today, after more than 25 years on the Outer Banks, the Kidd is live and local weekends on the Big 94.5 where he’s “back in the saddle, saddlebags ripping at the seams, overflowing with more of today’s new hit county.
