CoMo Tech: Jet Roberts


Who are you?


Jet Roberts

What do you do for money?

Sports Director and Talk Host on KFRU, Voice of the Jefferson City Jays on KLIK, Songwriter, Musician/Producer, Rock Jock on 100.1 The Buzz

What do you do for fun?

Write the truth and occasionally make it rhyme.


I would characterize my relationship with technology as:

Madly in love with seperation anxieties.

Smart or dumb phone? What kind? If smart, what are the three apps you use most?

I use a Blackberry Curve. I tried the iPhone for awhile (and liked it), but I like BB’s durability. iPhone has been and will always be finicky. I once saw a college-aged girl CRYING because she had “dropped her iPone”. As far as apps, I’m simply Google, Facebook, and Twitter.

Mac or PC or Other?

Most of my work is primarily done on office PC’s. I can’t comment on Macintosh, because I haven’t worked much with Mac, but I’ve heard polarizing opinions.

I use twitter for …
Twitter has become my primary news & information source. Recently it has also become a great social experience. But still not quite the one and only…

I use facebook for …
I… Love… Facebook. Social, social, social. I talk to my friends MORE on Facebook than on the phone or in person. I cover the entire world (where most of my friends ARE worldly because they’re primarily in their 30’s). I have MET more people through Facebook than through any public face-to-face experience. It’s interwoven into our American society. Somebody should make a movie about it.

Do you read any blogs? What are three of your favorites?
I’m a blogger myself, so I read a lot of blogs. My favorites right now would be (former KC Star turned Sports Illustrated columnist) Joe Posnanski’s blog, Gabe DeArmond’s blog, and (entertainment blog) Just Jared.

Go-to menu item and restaurant in CoMo?

Hello, meatball marinara with hot bowl of mozza tomato soup from Sub Shop.. It’s your friends, Jet and Mastercard. Good to see you again… today.

Complete this sentence: Archers of Loaf is:

The long overdue melding of Arrow Rock and the guy that did “Bat Out Of Hell” and was in that Fight Club movie that one time. Amd Rocky Horror. And on Glee. And I DVR’d his appearance. And I hope he comes to Columbia.

Friends are visiting from out-of-town. You’re for-sure taking them to:

Well, thanks to Facebook, I have a lot of new circles of different personalities. But, it would start with Murray’s and end at … (your suggestions welcome) …

My second-favorite city/town/hamlet/state/country/province in the world is:

A tie between Rome, Italy and good ol’ Howard County, USA

Coach Jet

Thanks, Jet!
