Hollie Grimaldi Flores was born in Binghamton, New York and raised in a nearby suburb, Vestal. She is the youngest of seven children. In 1985 Hollie moved to California with a degree in radio and television production out of Syracuse, NY. She worked for an award winning video production company, David Watts Productions, in San Francisco and for the writer of a top weekly radio show, Countdown USA in Marin County as well as for KRCB-TV, a public access television station in Rohnert Park, CA before moving to Grass Valley in 1995. After relocating to Nevada County, Hollie worked in a mechanical engineering firm and eventually started her own bookkeeping business before deciding to pursue a return to her first love  broadcasting. Hollie is past president of Soroptimist International of Grass Valley and the Board of Directors of the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Coalition. Hollie has two children from a previous marriage. Trevor Daniel Wade born in 1990 and Courtney Taylor Wade born in 1994. She is married to Ernie Flores and is sharing the responsibility of raising five boys: Michael, Stephen, Nicholas, Christopher and Timothy aged 26 to 17 as well. When not at the station, Hollie enjoys spending time watching local sports, hiking at the river, reading and attending local events with friends.

Football in the Air

There is an energy in the air that can only mean High school Football kicks off this week! KNCO and Star 94FM proudly broadcast the games live for our community each Friday night as we have for decades. If you can’t make it out to the game, you can listen to great play by play by tuning in on your radio or online.

Over the years, I have gone from spectator to Coach’s wife/spectator, to parent of kids participating (different kind of spectator), to average spectator and back to Coach’s wife. The amount of time, effort, energy and focus that goes into bringing these boys to game night can not be overstated.

Whether they end up with more wins than losses is not as important as the fact that they show up and work hard day after day. Life lessons, large and small, are being taught on and off the field and we should all be proud of that.

If you can get out to a game to show your support, you will feel it too.
