KT – Kayla Thomas 

“One day I woke up and decided I wanted to try radio….aaaand here I am. Pray for ya girl” @K92KT

Kayla is a Maryland native who came to the Virginia area to pursue a degree in Digital Media at Liberty University. She graduated in December of 2016 and has already dove head first into the career of her dreams.

Kayla has been with K92 since the summer of 2016 where she started out as an intern; now she is the loud, sassy voice of the midday show.

In addition to being a radio personality she also loves to make YouTube videos, workout, throw parties, watch football, and to change her hairstyle every month.

#DramaticWeathermanChallenge – KT

First I would like to say my thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by Hurricane Florence, especially those in the Carolinas. Here in Roanoke we haven’t experienced even half of what they are still calling for over there in Wilmington.

I’ve been watching the news alot…as I always do. Every morning before I head out to work I turn on CNN and just have it on in the background. I’ve seen news reporters and anchors hype situations up before…heck I do it to as a radio personality. Sometimes us media people can be a bit dramatic. But this!! This takes the cake. A weatherman who was reporting on the Hurricane was on national TV…the Weather Channel to be exact, was pretending to be getting blown away. Oh it was a spectacle. Imagine him struggling to stand up, shielding his face from the wind, bracing himself as he kept his body upright to keep himself from “blowing away”. Then all of the sudden in the background you see two men, in shorts, casually stroll by with no problem whatsoever. Clearly the weatherman was faking excessive hurricane winds that in reality were non-existent at the point. Talk about embarrassing.

 

So now this scene is being reenacted by everyone on the internet and I AM HERE FOR IT!!!!

 

 

 

I hate Pumpkin Spice Lattes – KT

 

Its 90 degrees outside right now, but I bet someone somewhere is wearing Uggs drinking a Pumpkin Spice Latte today.

We’re about a month out from Fall and Starbucks decided to bring back the infamous PSL today. It just came back out and its been all over my timeline all. dam. day. I have never even tried one. Yup, that’s right. I’ve never had a PSL and I hate it. I know I’m probably apart of the 1 percent that has never tried it, but I really don’t care. All the hype, all the pictures, all the “white girl Wednesday with my pumpkinspicelatteohmygodimsocute” bullcrap on social media makes me despise that drink. And that will probably never ever change.

Its too hot for all that anyway.

#BlackGirlMagic – KT

Wow. Shout out to my girl Simone Biles. I will point out that people always say I look like either her or Gabby Douglas. 1, because I’m black. 2, because I used to be a cheerleader so I have the gymnast body or whatever. ANYWAY, Simone made HISTORY this past weekend. She became the first woman EVER to win 5 all-around gymnastics championships. The crazy things is…Simone has only been training for 9 months after taking a year long break. Talk about talented!!!

And what I love is that she accomplished all of this while sending a quiet message with her leotard. By wearing teal, Simone sent the message that she was standing in solidarity with fellow sexual abuse survivors. This comes in the wake of many many many U.S gymnasts coming forward with sexual assault allegations against the former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar.

 

Congrats Simone. Go ‘head with that Black Girl Magic! Do it for the culture!

RIP Queen of Soul!! – KT

Today, August 16th 2018, the Queen of Soul…one of my idols…passed away at the age of 76. Aretha Franklin has inspired not only me but so many people for many years with her music. She will be missed, but the memory of her greatness as a musician and just an overall amazing human being will live with us forever. R.I.P Queen. 

 

 

 

Nicki Minaj’s New Album QUEEN. Bop or Flop??? -KT

QUEEN is finally here! After several delays and push backs its finally here.

I don’t know about you but I am SICK and tired of this Nicki Minaj vs. Cardi B drama. Why can’t both female rappers be dope? Why can there only be one queen? Cardi B’s debut album went number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Do you think QUEEN will put up the same numbers…or better? I’m really interested to see how it does.

In my opinion…..the album is dope. She definitely showed the haters why shes a top competitor. But again I’m not gonna say Nicki is better and I’m not gonna say Cardi is better. We need to stop putting females against each other. I want every woman to win. And that’s the mindset we all should have. So let’s start encouraging each other. Lets stop hating anD start showing love to one another. We’re all Queens. DUHHHHH

KT’s Hot Minute- Winnie the Pooh Banned in China!!??

This is the funniest thing I have heard all day!! As you know Christopher Robin the movie has recently been released. Wellllll the movie has been banned from being released in China. Why you may ask??? MEMES.

I swear memes have ruined the world and made it better all at the same time.

Here’s the image that started it all back in 2013…..

People have been saying that Obama and the President of China side by side look like Winnie and Tiger! And after that the memes kept rolling.

Funny right? Well the Chinese governement didnt think so. It pissed them off soooo much to the point that they went and banned all things Winnie the Pooh in the country ahhahhahahaha. Can we ban Bratz dolls??? People keep saying I look like the black one 🙁

I Went on a Three Day Military Diet!!! – KT

I’m a biggggg fitness freak if you didn’t know. I was going on vacation and wanted to have a banging body or whatever for Arizona. So I thought I would try to do the infamous military diet that everyone on YouTube has been doing. They said you could lose 10 pounds in 3 days??? Oh hell yea sign me up!!

 

But it wasn’t all that I thought it would be. Well….see for yourself….

“2018 Billboard Music Awards”

Everyone was talking about the 2018 Billboard Music Awards! Though there was alot of great performances…honestly I wasn’t that impressed with the whole thing. For a full recap of winners and performances click here!

 

KT’S HOT MINUTE-May 16th

“Yanny?” “Laurel?” Both?

Its like that dang blue/ gold dress thing all over again!!! I’m just gonna go out and say it!! I hear Yanny. I don’t understand how people can hear Laurel but it is what it is. I’ve done some research to try and get to the bottom of why people hear different things when this audio is played. Apparently it’s by the frequency you hear, so the louder the bass is on the device you’re listening from…the more the word “Laurel” will be pronounced and the higher the pitch is, the word Yanny will be heard! Something like that..idk… My head is still blown by the fact some people can hear both!!! If you want to try your luck at  the two words “Yanny” and “Laurel”, i’ll leave a link down below…listen to it and tell me what you hear.

KT’S HOT MINUTE-Feb.12

“GHOSTED” Hair Trend

I seriously can’t keep up with the constant changes in trends nowadays! There’s a new hair color everyone is wearing…and the color is called “Ghosted”. When you think of the word “Ghosted” you automatically think of someone who disappears on you because they simply aren’t interested anymore. Well this hair color gets has its name for a reason. The shimmery shades reveal themselves so quick, like in the blink of an eye. So fast you question if you even saw them or not. Check out the pictures, I might have to hop on this new trend!
