Hi there.... I'm Chellie Lynn....
I'm the afternoon voice of K-Shasta 104.3. I've lived in Shasta County since 1997 but my heart is still in my home of Portland, OR. I've always wanted to be in radio (I was that kid hanging out at the station events hoping to get some attention) but never really thought I had the voice for it. That all changed in 1995 when I began singing jingles for radio and television. Shortly after moving to Redding, I approached Don Burton and told him if he would give me some pointers, I would give him my voice for free. I started voicing radio commercials for Redding Radio in 2004 then got a shot at being an on air personality in 2006. After a 3 year stint at Q97, I came back to Redding Radio and am tickled to be on K-Shasta. I live in Shingletown with my husband Eric, son Tristan, dogs Ellie and Keenan, cats Bear and Baby and a cockatiel named Kramer.
