Sarah Pepper, who got her start on radio in Evansville before moving to host a show in Houston, is returning to her roots at WSTO Hot96.

Pepper has been manning the airwaves weekdays from 2-6 p.m. since earlier this month, according to courier-press.com.

An Evansville native, Pepper worked from 2003 to 2008 on WSTO after her discovery by Brad Booker while eating dinner with his wife at Turoni’s Restaurant. They struck up a conversation that sparked a production role for Pepper on the Booker and Diane Morning Show, according to a release from HOT 96.

When Diane Douglas transitioned to WIKY, Pepper moved into the co-host position. Booker and Sarah had a successful run at HOT 96, and in July of 2008 they moved to Houston, Texas to take over mornings on the newly launched HOT 95.7 there.

Booker moved stations, but Pepper continued with a nearly eight-year run at the station. She was later a host of The Morning Show at KHMX Mix 96.5 in Houston. Her 11-year radio career in Houston netted Pepper a number of broadcasting awards, including a record-breaking nine consecutive OutSmart Magazine Radio Personality of the Year Awards.

Pepper made the decision to return to Evansville after the birth of her daughter, Parker. The release said she made the decision "that home and family is where she needed to be."
