Ryan Fox (5a-9a eastern)
In my spare time, I enjoy having fun with my lovely wife Amber and my two young boys, Luke and Liam. You also may find me taking in a new movie on occasion, and watching college football ALL day on Saturday's in the fall. I love off-roading on four wheelers, going to church, and just spending quality time with family and friends. I believe life really is about the simple things, and about putting family first. I'm a big 'pop culture' fan with a soft spot for watching 'The Voice' and reality tv, and it goes without saying I LOVE country music!
Hi, I'm Mark Dixon. Thanks for checking out my bio.
FAVORITE FOOD: Dean's ribs at Explorers Point Restaurant.
FAVORITE MOVIES: Hands down, "The Godfather"
FAVORITE TV SHOWS: I'm a TV Land freak. Reruns of "3rd Rock" and the black and white "Andy Griffith".
FAVORITE RELATIVE: Isaac, Lab-American Bulldog mix, adopted from CHA in 08. The only family member I keep in touch with since my Mom passed.
FAVORITE COUNTRY SONGS: "People Are Crazy" by Billy Currington, "Red Light" by David Nail, "Ring of Fire" by Johnny Cash and "Rose Garden" by Lynn Anderson.
MARITAL STATUS: Happy (single.)
FAVORITE CARS: My 1956 Metropolitan. (below) I purchased it in 2009. The Met was the original gas-saving compact car - 32 mpg! Not bad for the 50's huh? Not great in speed, 0 to 60 in 5.5 minutes. Last summer, while driving to a car show in Ironwood, I watched nervously as the speedometer went down to 25 while going up Birch Hill.
WHEN I'M NOT ON THE AIR AT Z-93: You can find me either walking Isaac down the bike trail or working out at Chequamegon Health and Fitness Center.
Cathy Taylor (9a-2p et)
I was born in a small town near Birmingham, AL and raised in Florida. I've called everywhere from the beach to the mountains home and consider enjoying the outdoors second nature. My earliest memory has to be riding my tricycle around the block, and way too close to a busy road. I got in big trouble for that! My second earliest memory is playing DJ and singing along to every song. You could say the influence of radio stayed with me all the way through college, where I majored in Communications.
Lately I've discovered a knack for working with horses so I volunteer at a ranch, just grooming the horses and generally seeing to their well-being. It does me a lot of good to do something worthwhile with my spare time. Country music has been a big part of my life from the start, singing along to Charlie Pride, George Jones and my favorite, Ronnie Milsap, with my dad on road trips. These days, new artist Cam is one of my favorites, and I have a soft spot for Dierks Bentley. Even though I have lived all over the country, home is wherever friends, family, delicious food and awesome music are found. I'm glad to have found a home on the radio with you!

Lover of Music - Father to Amelia - Son of Chuck & Lynn - Husband to Sarah - Brother of Chaz - Friend to many... Thank you in advance for listening!
Biscuit (7p-12a eastern)
I was born in Texas but was quickly whisked a little farther north to Colorado for years, and then at age 9 my parents decided that we didn't have enough tundra and Northern Lights in our lives so they packed myself, 2 sisters and 2 hound dogs and drove in a single cab Ford and a small trailer all the way to Alaska. After fighting off bears and moose and catching king salmon with my bare hands during my adolescence I decided to go chase my dream of being a disc-jockey, so at 18 I spent my last free summer with my friends and then took off to Denver. I worked behind the scenes of radio, did a little schooling and before long I became the typical tortured radio intern... where I was given the name Biscuit. I thought it would just be temporary but was hired a short-time later by that country station and was told to just keep the name because people already knew me as that. (I wasted years coming up with cool DJ names too!) After a while it just became a part of me and it still is today. I've now worked in country radio for over 13 years and I still love it. Down-to-Earth artists, songs that come from the heart and stories we can relate to. I've also never had to move away from Denver to work in radio so I've been very fortunate. So yeah, my butt may be in city for work, but my heart is still all country and I know I'll end up back there some day. For now, I just prefer less mosquitoes and bears around trying to eat me when I'm drinking a beer while grilling a steak out back.
Kiki Garcia (12a-5a, eastern)
I was born and raised just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. I knew at an early age I wanted to be on the radio. Now you can say, I am ‘living in the dream’. I love anything that has to do with Pop Culture, Music and Football. When I am not watching E! Entertainment Television, I am yelling at the TV, willing the New England Patriots to victory. I cannot imagine a world without music, and I get caught singing in the hallways at work, all the time. Some other favorite activities are Shopping, watching Scandal, and believe it or not, Laundry. I have a wonderful husband who loves it when you call him Honeybear, 3 incredible kids, 2 dogs, and a cat named Tedi Bruschi.
