Loren Dixon

KNBA Director of Programming / Host of Afternoon Music Show

Loren’s been on the Radio in Anchorage for  29 years.  Since the mid 80's he's worked with local stations of varying formats including KWHL, KFQD, KKLV, KRUA and KMXS. His passion for Music and the 'Triple-A' radio format began in the early 90’s which led to him to help establish the format for KNBA when the station signed on in 1996. When not on the radio hosting a music show and interviewing local and national music acts, you’ll find him taking advantage of the Alaskan outdoors while living in the quiet, but bear filled hillside valley of his hometown Anchorage.

AK Rebel; Samuel Johns

    

KNBA began the Alaska Native Artist Spotlight to reach out to musicians, bands and artists in the effort to bring more Native voices to the airwaves.  We wanted to shine a brighter light by choosing a specific artist to showcase. So we asked for music… and the response was fantastic!

Annually we’ll be selecting an artist or band, from submitted entries, to be spotlighted on 90.3 FM. We'll record an artist/band profile; we'll share the artists/bands music as part of the On-Air playlist and we'll invite the artist/band for a Live In-Studio session on the radio.
