Grant C. Parks - General 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 10 years and a Programmer at KZFR for 11 years.

Leah McKean - Volunteer Coordinator

I am a Chico State Alumni who didn't move away after graduation. 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

Shirley McCoy - Office Assistant

I graduated from Chico State in May 2021 with my degree in business, but my passion has always been in the music industry. I love all 60s and 70s classic rock and blues and having grown up in the Bay Area, I was attending concerts multiple times a week at times and volunteering to promote a local blues festival which is where my passion and love for live music grew. I love our local community radio and how unique it is and the whole variety of programs we have.
