Andy Kahn has returned home.  Andy has worked in radio for more than 40 years, with stops in Lebanon, Portland, Eugene, Centralia and Pullman, Washington, and Mason City, Iowa. Andy says, "I almost died from COVID  in September of 2021, and once I got through that, I grew much closer to God. This move is a reflection of that." "I want to thank the nurse who prayed with me in the middle of the night, when I was so sick. Our God is a God of new beginings." Andy's move to Bend is actually a return home. He grew up in the area and got his first radio job at KGRL (which no longer exists) in 1981.

Jeremy Cowan is an old pro - in fact he pretty much grew up on KNLR (he's the owner's son).  Jeremy graduated from Mt. View High School in 1992 and then from Northwest Nazarene College in 1996 with a degree in chemistry.  Since then Jeremy has traveled to Ecuador (where he was heard around the world on HCJB Shortwave Radio) and Mexico twice for missionary trips.  His "day-job" is working as a commercial appraiser for Bratton Appraisal Group.  One of Jeremy's favorite things to do is fly-fishing in the back-country of Idaho.  He is also a runner and successfully completed the Boise Great Potato Marathon.
