More to the Story: Krista and the Morning Rush

By Taylor Harrington 3/31/2021 10:30am EST

We had the opportunity to sit down with amazing businesswomen and philanthropists Krista Hatcher Uelmen, and Tracy Anderson of Krista and The Morning Rush, 93.1 JAMZ Madison, Wisconsin.

Krista went to school for theater, but in order to graduate, she had to put on a performance piece. Improv was always Krista’s favorite thing, and so she wrote a song parody that may have been considered racy for a Catholic College, such as “Fire Crotch” because she is a redhead. Krista’s ability to remain unbothered onstage was noticed by the manager of a local radio station, who happened to be in the audience, and the rest is history. Krista went on to host Frankie and Hatcher and The Morning Sickness, and then her show on 93.1 JAMZ.

The story of “Right Place Right Time” led to the addition of Tracy to the show. Tracy went to Columbia College for theater but worked as a media sales rep for Midwest Family, so she was selling the radio station she is currently on now. The two women met through the company and quickly recognized their shared love of all things Bravo TV. The more that they hung out together, the more they realized that Tracy would be the perfect fit, and she has been with the show for over two years now.

“You meet everybody in your life on purpose to further you as a part of your path, and that’s how it was with Tracy.” Krista Hatcher Uelmen

Krista was recently nominated for The Man or Woman of The Year Award for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. She has a fierce team raising money to kick cancer to the curb, touching base with other people in the community to change lives. On the night of June 5, the winner will be announced and Krista’s team’s goal is to reach over $100,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Having attended Bravo TV networks BravoCon, Krista and Tracy have talked with the original housewife, Vicki Gunvalson multiple times now, and truly admire her openness and fierce strength as a businesswoman. One of Krista and Tracy’s favorite memories is when “I Love the 90s” came to Madison, Wisconsin, and they did Salt-n-Peppa’s “Push It”. Another great memory is an event that the two women hosted with Flavor Flav, as they always want to get the party started.

There is an app you can get for Apple and Android phones called 93.1JAMZ, and they are on social media at “Krista and The Morning Rush”, and at The full interview can be watched below on our YouTube channel, as well as listened to everywhere podcasts are available.
