E-mail Ken

Ken has the distinction of having hosted every shift since the birth of Mix 96.5. Maybe he’s not good at holding down a job, but he’ll probably tell you it’s because he’s a team player and is quick to point out, “There is no ‘I’ in ‘Ken’”.

These days, he’s the Mix 96.5 party coordinator, helping plan great events from “Race to the Taps” to “Christmas Is For Kids”. A devoted disciple of Martha Stewart, Ken also firmly believes it’s the people who make the party.

Ken’s on Mix 96.5 playing today’s best variety each Saturday and Sunday and also fills in during the week when he’s not busy auditioning fire-eaters and unicyclists. If you happen to be a fire-eater or a unicyclist, please send him an email. He’d love to hear from you. (Non fire-eaters and those who travel on two wheels are more than welcome to reply, too.)

He lives in Fairview where his hobbies include marriage, parenting, and rescuing boxers (the dogs, not the prize fighters).
