Information & News from the KZYX General Manager

I will be posting news and information here about any changes occurring at the station. As you are probably aware, staff member Mary Aigner is retiring after 22 years with KZYX. She will still be producing the show DEAD AIR on Thursday nights. She has provided incredible service to the station for many years, in many different positions, including her current job as Program Director, and her previous jobs as Interim Station Manager, Membership Coordinator and Underwriting Sales Director.

Angela DeWitt has been named our new Interim Program Manager. The staff is working together to create a new job description for the Program Director, and when that is done (and budget permits) we will post the job widely and have an open hiring process.

Stay tuned more news and information soon!

My Apologies for the station running yesterday's news this am.

Here's what was on the actual newscast.


The weather has slowed down construction at Mendocino College's new campus in Willits, but the project is still on schedule for moving in this summer and for classes to start this fall.

"The weather knocked us down a little bit," Mike Adams, director of facilities planning said, "but now that the foundation is in and all the base rock is on the driveway, it's going fine."

The main part of Phase 1 is the new building with the big metal frame going up now, which will have three classrooms, several offices for staff and counselors, and a "learning center." 

Mendocino College's spring semester starts today, Tuesday, January 22. There are lots of classes still open in Willits, said Peggy Randrup of the Willits Center. Students can still register for classes next week, as long as the class is still open.  A handout of Willits Center-only classes is available at the Willits Center offices, 11 Marin Street. 

Students can also register at that office, which is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Info: 459-6224.



Ukiah is applying for a $75,000 grant from the Federal Aviation Administration to update its airport layout plan, which will pave the way for larger projects in the future.

According to the staff report, FAA representatives suggested that the city apply for the grant, since updating the plan will allow the city to apply for a Runway Rehabilitation Design grant.

The city hopes to have the plan approved by December, then in 2014 apply for a $162,000 grant to design the Runway Rehabilitation, and in 2015 apply for a $1.8 million grant for the construction.



The Lake Board of Supervisors Tuesday will discuss an agreement to help pay for a school resource officer position at Kelseyville Unified, lease negotiations at Lampson Field for a new air ambulance service and an update on a Clearlake Oaks sheriff's substation location.

The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. in the board chambers on the first floor of the Lake County Courthouse, Lakeport.

The proposed memorandum would involve the school district and county sharing the costs to cover the resource police position.

At 9:30 a.m., the board will hear recommendations from the County Space Committee;The committee is proposing that lease negotiations begin on both a property on Shady Lane that the sheriff wants to purchase and a location at the Big Oak Shopping Center.


A Rohnert Park man was sentenced to two years’ probationfined $5,000 and was banned for life from fishing for the unlawful commercial take of 20 abalone.


On June 23, 2012, California Fish and Wildlife officers investigated reports of a large unattended bag filled with abalone. 

Wildlife officers waited for McMillen, who returned to the area and retrieved the bag of abalone the following day. The investigation revealed McMillen had unlawfully taken 20 abalone with the intent of selling them. 


Reports from concerned members of the public along with prosecution efforts from the Mendocino DA's Office  have been fundamental in protecting this precious resource.
