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.

Due to earthquake damage, KNBA 90.3 is currently broadcasting at a limited capacity with altered programming. While all staff and personnel are safe, our operations have temporarily relocated as we are not able to occupy the building. We are still in assessment mode of the damage to our equipment, and KNBA, Native Voice One and RIVR streaming services will not be available until further notice. We’ll be sharing updates as we have them, including an updated programming schedule. Thank you for your support and patience as we work to get our station back up and running.

As heard on Morning Line: Black Violin

Oct 30, 2018

Wil Baptiste and Nat Stokes, of the musical group Black Violin, talk about hip-hop and learning classical music at an early age.

  “Music is the language that everyone can relate to and everybody can understand,” Baptiste said on marrying the two styles together. “We did it because we were a product of our environment, we were hip-hop before we were classical, so it was just very natural for us to put the two worlds together.”
