Malinda Flenniken - KBest Media Managing Partner

 

Before producing an internationally syndicated radio show, Malinda (Ellison) Flenniken began her radio career at the age of 17 in Big Spring, TX, hired for what was then referred to as “telephone sales.” She soon became the Afternoon Drive host for the station before taking the plunge and moving to Los Angeles, CA at age 19. Malinda found her way to KGIL serving as Assistant Program Director, then Afternoon Drive announcer on the San Fernando Valley’s KMGX “Magic in the Valley.” After a few years of trying to catch glimpses of the legendary Rick Dees in and around Hollywood, Malinda was invited to the KIIS FM studios where she finally got to meet her radio hero. She was offered the opportunity to write and produce comedy bits for “Rick Dees in the Morning” which….she accepted! Her first comedy bit to hit the L.A. airwaves in the mid-'90s was a parody of Prosecutor Marcia Clark singing to O.J. Simpson in the style of Madonna’s “Take a Bow.” Her mesh with the Dees style of quality, professionalism, and comedy escalated to the internationally syndicated “Rick Dees Weekly Top 40 Countdown” where she became the Associate Producer, then the Producer, and finally Executive Producer. A decade of traveling the globe and brushing with celebrities during the Dees years was an incredible ride of memorable experiences. When her father became ill, Malinda left the Countdown and spent a year commuting between L.A. and Big Spring, TX where her family remained. When her father passed away, a gentleman in her hometown funeral home assisted her family…and won her heart. The following year, Malinda moved back to Texas where she joined “Lew Dee, Diana, and Malinda in the Morning” on Lubbock’s KLZK. The gentleman Funeral Director back in Big Spring came calling…they married, and Malinda became General Manager of her hometown radio station, KBST. She and her husband Danny Flenniken, along with partners Mike and Sheila Abusaab, now own KBest Media which includes KBST 95.7 FM, KBST AM 1490 & FM 103.9, and KBTS 94.3 FM.

First job: Burger King

Favorite quotes: “Smahrt like Marhk.”

Pet peeves: Mansplaining


Tell us about yourself:


I never dreamed that I would actually get to be on the air in radio broadcasting. I figured I’d be an intern sometime, but to do it for a living is great. I take pride in the work that I do and enjoy the crew that I work with. When not working, I write and workout material for my stand-up because I am an aspiring comedian. I usually like to catch the Open-Mic Nights in downtown Big Spring on Thursday nights to practice my material.


If you had the world’s attention for 30 seconds, what would you say?

 

Check out and like "The Green Bean Comic" on Facebook.


Would you rather to never be able to express yourself accurately or always have to say the exact truth? EXACT TRUTH


What irrational fear do you have?

 

Mirrors - They freak me out. Sometimes, I feel like there’s another dimension that I’m looking into and the person in the mirror knows that I’m real and she’s capable of causing me harm if I look into it too long...in the dark.

If you had the world’s attention for 30 seconds, what would you say? Find your path and fight with everything you have to stay on it. It's absolutely fantastic to step out of the box, just don't go too far from it because it's much harder to get back on track. Dream big and never let them go. It may not happen now but have faith, stay true to yourself and be kind. It will all be worth it you just have to be patient. Love yourself and each other. Without love there will never be peace.

Kris Moore - Music Director

Kris Moore - Music Director


On December 6th of "some year," Kris Moore was born in Wichita, Kansas to a very sweet Big
Spring, Texas lady and to a United States Air Force bomber pilot from Chicago. Many years
later in Big Spring, she won a contest on a local radio station when the DJ asked her, "Have you
ever thought about being in radio?" …And that’s where opportunity met career… not only in
radio but in television as well. Show biz seems to be a natural fit for Kris! She has worked all
over West Texas… Big Spring, Midland, Odessa and other areas including San Angelo.

 

Kris has won her fair share of awards from various reader polls like the Midland Reporter
Telegram, known as the “MRT,” and the Odessa Regional paper. Kris was also a semi-finalist in
"Mic Madness," beating all other radio and television anchors, which makes Kris Moore even
Moore interesting.

 

Kris loves her job!!! The only thing she loves more is her 3 boys. Add to that her 2 kitties,
"Cheddar" and "Baby Kitty," 2 parrot’s, "Alice and Harry," and 1 Beta fish, "Neptune." Kris
Moore serves as the Music Director for KBEST Country 95.7 and Afternoon Drive Announcer.
Catch her on the air from 3 PM- 6 PM every weekday. You can also watch her CBS7 show on
Thursdays during the Morning News segment, “Keeping Up with Kris.”
