Kristi Lee Returns (Or Does She?) To Sioux Falls

One thing is certain: Kristi Lee from the Bob and Tom Show is your hostess for the ‘Friends of the Bob and Tom Show’ Comedy Tour event at Washington Pavilion Friday night.

What remains a mystery is whether or not Kristi has been to Sioux Falls before.  I was told it was going to be her first visit, she insists (kinda) that she’s been here before:

Kristi, like a lot of ‘radio folk’, adopted an entirely new persona for her job, including a stage name.  That lends itself to some privacy, but over the years, Kristi’s personal life has been fodder for quite a bit of material from her co-workers.  I asked her if there was a line between her public and private lives on the air:

Kristi has two daughters, 12 and 16, and I asked her if they had any aspirations to follow in Mom’s footsteps:

One of the things that Kristi has done so well over the years if make herself relatable to her audience.  That means people like me – and no doubt you – feel like we know her even though we’ve never met.  For me, it’s a series of things about her life I can relate to:
