Sarah Bignall

Director of Operations

If you need to know the words to a particular song ask Sarah Bignall, the Director of Operations for Northern Community Radio.  She claims to know the words to all songs played on KAXE/KBXE.  Sarah is deeply involved with the day to day operation of the station assuring that things run efficiently and effectively.  She brings a particularly impressive expertise in marketing and graphic design to the job.  Sarah grew up in Grand Rapids and continues to live there with her husband and their two children…well…three if you include her favorite, the one with four legs.  Sarah is the go to person when you need a straight direct answer or opinion.  She continues to work to perfect  her “indoor voice”.

Today on the Morning Show we welcomed a walker into our studio.  Ben Clagett is walking across America, coast to coast.  You can see his progress, and find out if you might want to connect with him and help him out along his travels at this website Walk for 60

The campaign to rebuild KAXE’s broadcast plant and tower got a big boost from the Minnesota Legislature on May 21. At the very end of the 2018 session, the House and Senate passed a bonding bill that included $514,000 for our project. Governor Dayton signed the bill on May 30th.

We want to hear from you!  We are looking at mixing up our weekend programming and are looking for your input.  Are there programs you LOVE each weekend?  Programs that make you turn the radio off?  Now is your chance to be heard.
