Personalities

Moe Howard

Moe has been on the air in Northern California for several decades, beginning with a small radio station in Marysville that played what was called “Middle of the Road” music. He has hosted country music, classic hits, a news format, and is very happy to be working with Allison Kirk, talking about the many going’s on in the artistic community of Nevada County, and playing today’s hits and yesterday’s favorites.
Moe is extremely lucky in love, married to a beautiful fitness instructor who helps him take care of the many wonderful creatures on their place in Sutter, such as his friends, who just happen to be kittys, Socrates and Plato.
He enjoys baseball (watching, not doing) and a cold craft brew.

John August

My name is John August … I Host Evenings 7 pm to Midnight on Nevada Counties own Star 94 FM … I have spent the last few years working here at KNCO as Fill-in Host for “Swap-Shop” on KNCO – “News/Talk 830”. I am a Radio Veteran with 25 years Experience “On-Air” and “Imaging Production” in the San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Sacramento Markets! My ties to Nevada County stem from Childhood. Every Major Holiday (Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, and 4th of July) My Mom & Dad would pack My two Sisters and me along with our Basset Hound into the Station Wagon and we’d travel up from the Bay Area to see Family in North San Juan. I loved to stop by the KNCO Gazebo every year during The Nevada County Fair! So you can understand how excited I am to be On-Air at both KNCO-FM/Star 94 FM & KNCO-AM “News/Talk 830”!

Carl Southcraft

Karl Southcott here! I’m a giant movie fan and love everything from the classic film store all the new exciting flicks. When I’m not in a movie theater I like to hang with my family, especially around water, I think I’m part fish. I have two small boys that keep me busy, let me tell you! One of my very favorite things is sharing music on the radio with our listeners. I love everything from Frank Sinatra to Bruno Mars. It’s such a kick!

Liz & Chris

Hi, I’m Liz Bell, a single mom to 2 gorgeous girls! I love throwing theme parties, read that as ‘Pinterest addict.’ I believe there is no better feeling than a sloppy ponytail and yoga pants. I enjoy traveling, things that sparkle and my partner, Chris Tyler. ***Chris Tyler here! I also have two kids, plus an awesome wife! I run marathons, but in real life, I love to spend time at our neighborhood pool.  And I’m a huge sports fan.  It’s hard for me to choose a favorite type of music! I like many different types! Except maybe Gangsta Rap. I have to draw the line somewhere.

Richard Stevens

overload. He grew up in North Dakota, where life moves at a slower pace, and radio signals seem to
go on forever and finds satisfaction in entertaining listeners with insights, ideas… and a certain wacky perspective on life. Richard is married to his soulmate Amy and, to get her, they have three children.  They enjoy long walks, yoga, movies, quirky television shows and enjoying time together at home.
