Rick Anderson - General Manager

I always wanted to be a DJ. As a kid I would sleep with a radio next to my bed and rock all night long. It never occurred to me to do anything else. The journey started 45 years ago and continues at KZFR Chico. The Latest Craze is a show that features newly released music of all genres and occasional artist interviews.


Grant C. Parks - Production Coordinator & Office Manager

I found KZFR my senior year at CSU, Chico and fell in love with the diversity of musical programming. Being an advocate of Reggae music I was immediately attracted to the sound of 'Devastation Sounds' and did my first live broadcast the weekend I graduated college. I am proud to say that I have worked at KZFR for 9 years and a Programmer at KZFR for 10 years. 


Leah McKean - Volunteer Coordinator

I am a Chico State Alumni who didn't move away after graduation because I fell in love with this little town after finally finding like-minded, progressive folks through listening to KZFR. During the 30+ years I've lived here, I've worked & volunteered with a number of local nonprofits always with the goal of improving our community. I strive to leave things better than I find them and to cause as little harm as possible to the planet and all living things (though I’ll admit I’m not always successful). "Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair, but manifestations of strength and resolution." - Kahlil Gibran


Ray Laager - Underwriting Director

I have been involved in radio since my college days, and for over 20 years at KZFR. It is an honor to be on the air and able to share my love for music. And to help grow KZFR by bringing in Underwriters, raise our visibility and continue to reach out to our community.
