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 Alaskan Music Spotlight is heard Fridays at 5:30 pm. The show focuses on local artists and new release's.

The Friday December 20th show featured a live performance from the Super Saturated Sugar Strings
