Loren Dixon

Director of Programming & Operations - KNBA

Loren’s been on the Radio in Anchorage for  30 years.  Since the mid 80's he's worked with Anchorage radio stations including KWHL, KFQD, KKLV, 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, he may be on a long road trip or you’ll find him hanging out at his log cabin  in the quiet, but bear filled hillside valley of his hometown Anchorage.

The Bear Tooth presents the July First-Tap featuring Nahko and Medicine for the People. The show is Thursday July 2nd, 2015 at the Bear Tooth Theater Pub. Doors open at 8pm.
