Lydia Cruz has been on the airwaves with Brooke & Jubal in the Morning for four years. She's the local traffic whisperer, notorious Boner Killer and the whitest Latina you know. Lydia is a proud Seattle native with a shameless coffee addiction to prove it. If she's not at work she's outdoors in the PNW. She loves running, playing with her dogs, snowboarding, yoga and friends know her as the girl that never stops moving. Unless she breaks to eat dessert and watch Game of Thrones. Look for her out at concerts as "that one girl dancing."
