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.

19.) A quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson is pinned up at her desk: 'The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well."
