CoMo Tech: Renee Hulshof



Who are you? KFRU's Renee Hulshof

Mom to daughters Casey and Hanna, wife to Kenny, radio co-host, enjoyer of food, music and wine, frustrated old-home improver, weather geek.

What do you do for money?

Radio Co-host, The Morning Meeting KFRU

What do you do for fun?

See above: cook, eat, drink wine, improve old houses (here and at farm), explore new things in Washington DC and New Orleans. We have gone to Jazz Fest in NOLA annually for 23 years.


I would characterize my relationship with technology as:

learning and chasing … and occasionally cursing at it.

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

Smart. iPhone 4. Tweetdeck, Foursquare, Weather Channel

Mac or PC or Other?

MacBook Pro

I use twitter for …

fun conversation, keeping up with the news and local events. Political fix.

I use facebook for …

keeping up with friends. Sharing photos. Non-political.

Do you read any blogs? What are three of your favorites?

Yes, usually via links on twitter from trusted sources. Don’t read any with religious regularity. I do enjoy local blogger Kate Canterbury’s The Guavalicious Life, and on the political front former Missouri-based reporter and now with Politico – Dave Catanese at Also find myself reading on occasion.

Go-to menu item and restaurant in CoMo?

I am having so much trouble with this question!!! How am i supposed to pick favorites? Oh, here goes: Sophia’s for lunch (esp the patio) Ravioli Carne with Three Cheeses…followed by a nap.

Complete this sentence: Archers of Loaf is/are:

I had no idea when I read this survey. I did do a wiki, and learned the answer, but that’s cheating, right? (it’s a band)

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

Hopefully, they are here during an event. Columbia does events well! Football games, Roots and Blues, summerfest etc. If not, then we have to do Shakespeare’s pizza and maybe a walk on the trail or peruse the downtown shops and scenery.

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

Washington DC. Love exploring the museums with my daughters, enjoying all the restaurants of a big city with my husband, but would never want to live there full time. The traffic is lunacy. Always want to come home to Missouri.
