Erica Rico

Hey y'all! I'm Erica Rico from The New 93Q Morning Zoo.

I was born into a huge family in Arizona where I learned to cook and speak my mind!  However, since I have an undying love for George Strait, football, and big ole' trucks, it only made sense that I move to Texas, which is exactly what I did in 2005.

I absolutely love it here in Houston and never, ever, want to leave! Luckily for me, my family feels the same way about Houston as I do.  I have four wonderful children, Danielle, Alex, Ricky and Dallas.  My kids raise animals (a steer and some hogs right now), so going to the barn twice a day every day has been a new experience for me, but I secretly love it.

What do I do in my free time?  What's free time?  Did you not read that I have four kids?  Haha.  Oh you mean, the time we all have left over after working, taking care of kids, cooking, cleaning, helping with homework, being a taxi, and organizing our families? In that case, I enjoy reading, cooking, coaching my kid’s sports teams, watching football, working at the barns and shopping.

Some of my favorite things about working here is - of course - all of the country music, getting to talk to and meet artist, being able to compete in rodeo events like the HLSR Wild Cow Milking Championship (2010 Champion), but my favorite part is putting Tim and Kevin in their place.  Hey, someone has to, and I’m just the person for the job!    

I love y’all!

Where The New 93Q will be:

 

Houston’s devastating weather this week is being called the worst flooding since Tropical Storm Allison in 2001.  Some areas, including Meyerland and Greenspoint, were hit especially hard. Severals parts of the region experienced more than 15 inches of rain in less than 24 hours, according to county flood district gauges.

While gauges, cameras, and radar and help measure the weather, many Houstonians are using a relative new tool — drones — to help explore the extent of the damage. Below are some of the most striking videos caught by drones of the flooding across the Houston region this week.
