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.
