MΛVTRIK (Austin Linstruth)

Sunny California Born, I moved along with my family to the Silver State in 2007 in search of less politics, and more importantly less traffic! I started my ventures into radio at a very young age, with the earliest memory I can remember being in my dad’s production studio that he built inside one of his offices. I just remember wanting to push all of the buttons, and would even hog the mic from time to time, but I doubt anything interesting was said! A couple years after getting settled in Nevada, I started my own online internet station known as ‘99.3 KDLT.’ This station consisted of nothing more than random songs that I liked at the time, but eventually began to grow and gain listeners from around the world, and this is when I knew I wanted to take this even further. I then applied for an internship at Ruby Radio Corporation here in Elko, and during the interview they offered to skip the internship and hire me instead. This is when things really began to take flight, as I dug my hands into every project I could there, including my own evening spot on the legendary Mix 96.7, morings on Big Country 103.9, and head producer of the morning news on 94.5 KZBi. After working there for over a year, I decided to venture out even further, and made an overnight decision to drive up north to Boise, ID. In short, I walked in and said “Hire Me!” and the rest is history as my new title became TownSquare Media: Production Associate.

But of course I couldn’t just abandon everyone back in Nevada! So I’ll continue to hang out with all of you every weekend right here on My99.7!
