Alan has been in the radio business for over forty years. His career began in 1966 at KVEL AM in his hometown of Vernal, Utah. He worked there through high school, playing 45 rpm records after school and on weekends. In college he worked at KSUB-AM in Cedar City, Utah and served a stint as News and Sports Director at KDXU-AM/FM in St. George, Utah. From there he returned to KVEL for several years as News and Sports Director. He came to Idaho in 1985 as News Director at KWIK/KPKY in Pocatello while he completed a degree in Mass Communications/TV Production at Idaho State University. He took a ten year break from broadcasting to work in public relations for the Pocatello School District and for the State of Idaho.
His love of small town radio brought Alan to Preston in 1998 as the owner and manager of KACH-AM. He and Nelada are the parents of five grown children and at last count the grandparents of 23. Alan enjoys reading, camping, and Dutch oven cooking.
Hi, I’m Liz Bell, a single mom to 2 gorgeous girls! I love throwing theme parties, read that as 'Pinterest addict.' I believe there is no better feeling than a sloppy ponytail and yoga pants. I enjoy traveling, things that sparkle and my partner, Chris Tyler. *** Chris Tyler here! I also have two kids, plus an awesome wife! I run marathons, but in real life I love to spend time at our neighborhood pool. And I’m a huge sports fan. It's hard for me to choose a favorite type of music! I like many different types! Except maybe Gangsta Rap. I have to draw the line somewhere. J
Fun loving Michael “The Giff” Gifford and his wife of over 20 years are nutty dog lovers (labs/lab mix) and his two daughters keep him scratching his head daily, especially now that one of them has given him his first grandchild. The family loves to travel and Giff is into golfing, hiking, camping… just about everything outdoors… except large animals that could eat him. His wife thinks he spends more time in the garden than he does with her, but she does enjoy the “fruits” of his labor.
Richard Stevens lives for quiet simplicity away from the constant barrage of noise and information-overload. He grew up in North Dakota, where life moves at a slower pace, and radio signals seem to go on forever, and finds satisfaction in entertaining listeners with insights, ideas… and a certain wacky perspective on life. Richard is married to his soulmate Amy and, together, they have three children. They enjoy long walks, yoga, movies, quirky television shows and enjoying time together at home.

Karl Southcott here! I’m a giant movie fan, and love everything from the classic films to all the new exciting flicks. When I’m not in a movie theater I like to hang with my family, especially around water, I think I’m part fish. I have two small boys that keep me busy, let me tell you! One of my very favorite things is sharing music on the radio with our listeners. I love everthing from Frank Sinatra to Bruno Mars. It’s such a kick!
