SPOKANE, Wash. - KHQ's Allison Flicker took over our Facebook page for an hour on Wednesday morning, giving viewers a chance to ask her anything! And we learned a lot! Here are 29 things we learned about Allison during her Facebook chat:


1.) She listens to country music in her car, and even told 93.7 The Mountain's Tanya Tyler what the craziest thing that has happened to her during a live shot.

Q.) Tanya Tyler: "Jamie and I on 937 The Mountain watch you every morning in our studio. AWESOME JOB! We want to know , "What is the craziest thing that has ever happened to you while on location?" Honestly!"

A.) Allison: "Thanks for watching - I listen to you guys in my car too - I went to school in Virginia so sometimes I need that country music fix. I'm lucky that nothing too crazy has ever happened to me, but when we're headed to breaking news and running late, that always gets a little crazy - it's a huge rush but we almost always make it work! My photographer is a pro - he can set up the camera and all that in less than 2 mins!"


2.) She has a lunch date set up with KHQ's Kalae Chock.

Q.) Kalae Chock: I'd like to go on record and say Allison is awesome. My question is: Allison, would you like to go to lunch with me one day soon?

A.) Allison: 100% YES!!!!!

3.) She didn't always know she wanted to be a reporter.

Q.) Justin Creighton: At what age did you decide to be in this career?

A.) Allison: Probably towards the end of college is when I decided I wanted to give this a shot.

4.) She has a great attitude and winning smile (but we already knew that :) )

Q.) Patty Sutton: Honey, you are such a joy to watch. You always have such a great attitude and winning smile. The station is so lucky to have you.

A.) Allison: Thank you Patty! Glad you're watching!

5.) She has a few favorite local spots in Spokane.

Q.) Susan Panther: What are some of your favorite local spots or finds so far? Have you made a Spokane/North Idaho bucket list?

A.) Allison: Waddell's, Rockwood Bakery, and Chaps. And I was lucky enough to go to some lake houses this summer - that has been very neat.


6.) She's planning on trying skiing for the first time in a while this winter!

Q.) Susan Panther: I love Rockwood and Chaps! You should try The Scoop and Sante's. And if you're a skier/snowboarder, Schweitzer is the best.

A.) Allison: I promised myself I would try skiing this winter - I haven't done it in years but I feel like I have to just give it a shot!

7.) She loves to hike and bike!

Q.) Misty Hallmark: What are your favorite hobbies to do while you are not at work? I am sure you have a few!

A.) Allison: I bought a bike so I'd like to get into biking a little bit more! And hiking too - Spokane is fab for hiking.

8.) She didn't 'start the fire!'

Q.) Matthew N. Winter What's your favorite music?

A.) Allison: Billy Joel is my fave.

9.) Her last name is Flicker, and she likes it.

Q.) Matt Gardner: Also, while watching the news my eyes get somewhat blurry and seem to mistake your last name for something else. Entertaining.

A.) Allison: Can't change my last name - it is what it is!

10.) She wants to move closer to home, but not anytime soon.

Q.) Karen D. Collins: It seem a lot of news reporters use Spokane as a stepping stone for bigger city's. Are you looking to move up to bigger news stations?

A.) Allison: I think someday I would really like to live somewhere that is a little closer to home, but right now I am very much enjoying Spokane!

11.) She likes reporting the news... for now.

Q.) Joann Wallace: Are you just interested in reporting? Or are you interested in sports or weather?

A.) Allison: I like sports a lot, but in doing news sometimes I get to do some sports stories too, which is super nice. I don't think weather is for me - I think news is a good fit for now. But who knows?!

12.) She likes hot wings... winter, not so much.

Q.) Mark Burandt: We're the wings the hottest food ever? Also what do you think of Spokane?

A.) Allison: The last wings we ate, the "widow makers" were VERY hot. The first 2 were kind of good, but the last ones were way too hot. And I like Spokane a lot - I'm not thrilled about winter coming but this is a beautiful place to live.

13.) She's from Long Island!

Q.) Thomas Erin-Warren Elliott: What part of NY are you from I am from Watertown, NY

A.) Allison: Very cool - I'm from Long Island!

14.) The people in her stories remember her and she remembers them!

Q.) Beverly Olson: I don't have a question but always enjoy your reports. You visited my little neighbor, Aubrey, and I at my home a couple of months ago. KHQ is my favorite news channel.

Q.) Randy Pugh: If you had the chance to interview anyone, who would it be? Why? And the first question you would ask??

A.) Allison: Oprah! Not only has her career been super impressive but she also has been through a lot to get to where she is now. I think I'd ask her what her best advice is for women working in TV.

17.) She has souvenirs from New York at her desk.

18.) She has a younger sister.
