Loren Dixon

Director of Programming & Operations

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 KNBA Engineering Department is currently replacing important parts on our main Transmitter.  We are operating from a secondary system that requires us to transmit using lower power levels. This has had a very noticeable affect on the quality of the 90.3 FM signal.  Thank you for your patience as we anticipate the repairs to be completed soon.
