Lori Neufeld

FM Music Director, Volunteer Coordinator, and host and producer of Alaska Live

Lori’s love for public broadcasting runs deep. She was raised on Car Talk, Morning Edition, A Prairie Home Companion, and later while studying wildlife biology at Bethel College in North Newton, Kansas,  she realized that if she helped answer phones during the fund drive at KMUW, she could meet and chat with the hosts of locally produced shows.

After moving to Alaska in 1999, she became more directly involved with community radio as a volunteer host at KTNA in Talkeetna. Hitting the airwaves solo for her first show was nerve-wracking and exhilarating, and she says she relives those feelings through the energetic and nervous first-time volunteers she trains for KUAC’s volunteer shifts and local programs.

As producer and host for Alaska Live on KUAC FM, she now researches music and musicians from such a variety of backgrounds and genres, and wrangles these musicians into the studio while making them feel at ease so they can perform at their best.  Now in her eighth year at KUAC, Lori still marvels at the support public broadcasting gets from listeners and the community, and feels lucky to be a part of it.
