I’m a fourth generation Montanan, born in Libby and raised in Missoula. I’m a University of Montana alumni, where I studied Journalism/R-TV production, History and vocal performance (yes, I can sing!) I have been on the radio in my hometown for 25 years now.  In fact, it will be 25 years on my birthday in 2017!  Lucky me!

I like pretty much every type of music out there and I’ve always loved radio. I used to call and bother the dj’s to play my favorite songs. And, I would listen late at night to whatever stations I could pick up, recording them on my cassette recorder and imagining that one day I’d be on the radio as well.  The best thing about it for me is laughing every day! Also, sharing information in the form of news and trivia. I love the “community” of a radio audience, and getting to know people and helping people through that community. Most of all I enjoy laughing, and making other people laugh.  The music is like icing on the cake.  It’s really the best job ever and I’m grateful for it!

Besides radio, I love to read and write essays and poems, I enjoy playing the piano, watching the Denver Broncos and San Francisco Giants, and I enjoy being outside in beautiful Montana! I appreciate a tasty beer and there are so many good ones to choose from!   And of course, I love spending time with the Milkman and our family and friends that includes four dogs (two large, two small) and a bird.


I was born and raised in Montana. Growing up I listened to the radio every day!  I wanted to one day to be on the radio and connect with people in a little room with a microphone. Thanks to all those jocks that put up with me hounding them to play my song or give me a t-shirt.

I eventually went to broadcasting school in Spokane, WA. I started in radio in Missoula in 1991, on a pop station taking requests for 13 year old girls that couldn’t sleep at night. That’s how I got my start. I am extremely lucky and grateful to be able to make a career out of being on the radio.

I am a huge hockey fan (Go Blackhawks), best sport ever to watch live! I play the tenor drum in The Celtic Dragon Pipe Band, yes a bagpipe band, but of course I don’t play the bagpipes, just the drum!  I like a good beer, or even a bad one.  I have a thing for bacon. Thanks for listening and letting me be a part of your day!

What did you want to be when you were 5? And really…what kid actually gets to be the astronaut, rockstar, explorer, or radio host?!? Whitney Allen, that’s who! Her parents bought her a red transistor radio (that she slept with under her pillow every night) and adopted her first cat, Thomasina (who slept with her every night.) That’s when she knew, it was radio or animals. Since she was better at talking than biology, she knew she was going to be on the radio. So at the age of 5, she set out to make it BIG.

Before her first radio gig, Whitney heard a DJ who sounded like a woman that wanted to steal your boyfriend. If Whitney was going to be a DJ, that was not the sound she was going for. KATA in Eureka, California was the first station to give her a shot on the air. There, Whitney spent 2 years in place of that exact girl that wanted to “steal your boyfriend.” When she had enough of the northern California rain, Whitney headed south to San Diego. Warming up not just in the sun, but on CHR’s two hottest stations, nostalgia, AC and her first foray into country. Then the call came in…

Pirate Radio in Los Angeles. No two better things could have happened at the same time in Whitney’s life: a ground-breaking station being led by Scott Shannon,  in her hometown of Los Angeles where she always dreamed of making it BIG. Then KIIS-FM in Los Angeles came along. For 3 years she hosted nights, middays, filled in and even co-hosted some mornings with the legendary Rick Dees. Still…there were bigger plans to come.

Blair Garner who worked at KIIS with Whitney, left to start his syndicated show “After Midnite.” He asked Whitney to join him, so she became the host of “After Midnite Weekends with Whitney Allen” for 8 years, on over 200 country stations.

Staying in her hometown, Whitney became the afternoon drive host at KZLA…but she was already bitten by the syndicated bug. So with only weekends free, “The Big Time Saturday Night” was born. As the business goes, KZLA flipped formats. Instead of dwelling on the past “The Big Time with Whitney Allen” was launched, and now, 6 years later, Monday through Friday on 150 stations.

Now, 6 nights a week, on The Big Time and The Big Time Saturday Night, Whitney hangs out and occasionally…ok, often,  harasses listeners and artists. She gives credit to the chaotic (and usually drunk) team behind her, because The Big Time is too BIG for one person to handle. It really takes listeners, artists, music and a dream team to make Whitney’s  dream come true.

When she’s not on the radio, or backstage at the biggest country concerts,  Whitney loves the outdoors, redecorating, napping, and Mexico. Her furry kids, Paloma, Mattie and Flue (the dogs), and her too many cats keep her busy. Luckily, even without a degree in veterinary medicine, with the power of radio, she still gets to help animals through different charities. And, in keeping her promise to never sound like the girl that wants to steal your boyfriend, she’s got a man of her own.
