Outlaw Music News
Jennifer Blackwell - Local News
I've been in the crazy radio business for over half my life! I've lived in Yuma since 1993 and have had the pleasure of working for the same boss man (Keith Lewis) for over 18 of those. I've co-hosted a morning show, hosted a nighttime rock show, produced many interview segments, and just had my hands in many areas of the industry. I am the News Director for KCYK Outlaw Country and our sister station, Z93. I've been married to my sweetheart, Jeff, since 1994 and we have a terrific son, Jace, who is 14. There's never a dull moment in the Blackwell house! I was born and raised in Safford, Arizona, and most of my family still resides there, so I get to make the occasional trek back to visit and enjoy the beautiful scenery that Mount Graham provides. I am often accused of being too happy – I could have worse habits I guess! I love a great comedy and think reality tv is lazy – there, I said it! Have a great day and drop me an email: Jblackwell@z93yuma.com or find me on find me on Facebook under Jennifer Blackwell (Jennifer Nichols Blackwell).
The Honorable Russell T. Clark was born and raised in a military family. Relocating to new communities and states every few years gave him insight as to the type of location he would want to call home and raise a family. In 1994, Russ pursued an opportunity that would bring him to Yuma, the city that he has called home ever since. Russ, along with his wife, Ginny, purchased a local business and moved their two young children to Yuma.
Since then, Russ has established himself as a local community leader through the growth of his businesses to some of the most productive in the Southwest and through his community involvement. Russ has served Yuma County with positions on many local boards including the Chamber of Commerce, the Hospital Operating Board for Yuma Regional Medical Center and the Colorado Tea Party. He has also been recognized as an advocate for the local community by sharing his viewpoints openly on his radio program over the last ten years and supporting candidates seeking office locally and statewide. Russ was elected to the Yuma County Board of Supervisors in 2012 and is currently in his first term.
Russ is a graduate of Delaware State University, earning a B.S. in Business with a minor in Accounting. The young children that Russ and Ginny brought to Yuma are now grown. Robert is a Captain in the U.S. Air Force and Kathryn is a student attending Arizona Western College, where she is studying to become a teacher.
Jay is the voice of Outlaw Country and he can also be heard doing live broadcasts from local businesses.
MORGAN IN THE MORNING has always been a morning person so this job is perfect for him. In fact, he credits it with keeping his marriage together for 26 years. His wife says if he was at the breakfast table everyday she’d been out of there long ago. His daughters will second that. The boy does like to talk! He started waking people up on the radio years ago when he realized that he didn’t have to sweat. And now ‘Morgan in the Morning’ enjoys misbehaving with his listeners on a daily basis. “The free coffee and internet ain’t bad either," he says.
I grew up in small town Iowa. The home of the Bridges Of Madison County. I am the youngest of 5 and my parents just celebrated their 59th Wedding Anniversary. I have a daughter named Karsyn who just turned 20 years old and flew the coop. I’m single and an empty nester except for my two dogs Kya and Charlie Brown. I love all animals including bugs. I am an avid Oakland Raiders and love to watch football.
My favorite tv channels are Sy Fy and FX. My favorite tv show is Grimm. I love action movies too. I work out with weights to stay tone and run with the mutts for cardio. I also am a National Anthem singer. I find it hard to pick a music favorite. I’m extremely very diverse and truly believe music makes it better.
I grew up in the suburbs of New York City, and went to the same high school as Matt Dillon and Joan Rivers. My father and sister still live in New York, the rest of my family is overseas. I've been married, but am not currently. When I'm not on the radio, I'm probably out riding my Harley, exploring new areas. Recently, I attended the 75th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, which definitely checks one off my bucket list. I'm also an avid football fan (NFL and NCAA), as well as baseball and basketball. As for playing, I'm not very good at any of them, but I like playing golf, tennis, racquetball, and bowling. Having worked in a variety of music genres, I have a wide and varied taste in music from Classic Rock to Hip-Hop to Frank Sinatra, but my favorite is Country music. It's like comfort food.

I caught the radio bug at a young age. As a kid he would lay in bed at night listening to stations from Chicago, Cincinnati, Nashville and Pittsburgh. Then as a teenager, he got to work at his high school radio station. FYI, I’m slightly taller than Kenny Chesney and about a foot shorter than Trace Adkins. In 1984 I married my high school sweetheart. I have 3 daughters, 3 sons-in-law, and 5 grandchildren. When I'm not on the air playing my favorite music (country) or hanging out with my family, I enjoy working outside. I love getting on my tractor and mowing. It is like therapy to me! I am also actively involved in my church, and serve on the board of an inner city community center.
