Ryan Fox loves being on the radio. Not a day goes by that he does not consider himself blessed to have grown up in and around the radio business. His family once owned stations, and he has worked in radio since age 11. In his spare time, he enjoys hanging out with his lovely wife Amber and his is new baby boy Luke. You'll also find him taking in new movies, and watching college football. Ryan enjoys attending church, spending time with family and friends, and wrestling with his fun-loving beagle-terrier, Max. He's a big fan of everything 'pop culture', and it goes without saying Ryan LOVES 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.

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.
DAKOTA loves America, golden retrievers, and Little Debbie Snack Cakes. Not to mention Country Music! Having grown up in a tiny Oregon lakeside town, she knows what it’s like to go nuts, living out in The Sticks. She also appreciates that, out of all musicians, country artists make an effort to look attractive. Yep, she’s that shallow.
Dakota has no cake-eating dwarves at home (kids), nor a spousal unit; but she does have a young orchid named Cleo, currently in full bloom. When she’s not on the air, Dakota moonlights as a Countdown Specialist: handling numbers 16 through 10. She plays Texas Hold ‘Em in her spare time, but is so bad at it that she gets taco sauce all over the cards; and loses so much, she has to pay people in turquoise jewelry.
BRIAN DOUGLAS can be found doing just about everything he can outdoors. He also enjoys coaching his son’s tee-ball team and teaching him how to fish. He likes to get his heart going by running a mile or two every day—it’s his morning coffee! Brian has traveled extensively as well but after visiting over thirty countries his favorite place to go is still Vegas. He believes that machine will hit soon!
He lives with his wife and six year-old son, Jack.
JENNY D, a Colorado native, with a degree in journalism from Colorado State University, believes that every moment in life has a soundtrack that you get to pick out for yourself. Live through music, live through a dream, or live through life, let each day be monumental. Some of her fondest memories are rocking out to the radio in the back of her mom’s vintage, metallic green Ford mustang, which is where her love for music began. She has a knack for making people laugh, a true gift for sarcasm, and keep up with her, because she likes to keep it real on the radio. So, relax, because when you spend some time with her, hopefully you get that laid back, warm and fuzzy feeling, like the end of a good John Hughes movie. Let’s face it, at the end of the day, we should all believe in happy endings.
