KTWA Personalities


5:00 am – 9:00am:  Richard Stevens

Richard Stevens lives for quiet simplicity away from the constant barrage of noise and information-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 together, they have three children. They enjoy long walks, yoga, movies, quirky television shows and enjoying time together at home.

9:00am – 2:00pm:  Chris Michaels

Chris Michaels here, I like to think of just one listener spending their day with me enjoying the music and hopefully appreciating what I have to say. I hope you are that person. When not on the Radio, I love trying to find the perfect river to fish. When not fishing, I’m reading, studying, thinking and dreaming of….fishing! My wife and I are ‘empty-nesters’ with three grown children, three grandchildren and three cats who are ‘raising’ us! I guess we love things that come in threes!


2:00pm – 7:00pm:  Karen

Hi! I’m Karen. (And I don’t want to speak to your manager!) I’ve been doing this radio thing for almost 25 years now, and I love it!! When I’m not on the air, I enjoy traveling with my boyfriend. We took a helicopter ride down into the Grand Canyon & recently went to Spain! I love taking pictures of our travels, as well as the food we eat along the way because we both love cooking & trying new cuisines! When I’m not traveling you will find me out on our motorcycle, or just hanging out with our two cats. If you want to catch up with me, you can find me on Instagram @karenontheair!

7:00pm – 12 midnight:  Paul Horton

You know about the Whisper Challenge – a simple story is whispered to one person and then that person whispers it to the next and so on. After five or six people you almost never get the same story. This shows the importance of clear communication and I love communicating! Sharing information, ideas, hopes, and dreams is my passion. That’s why I love being on the radio. So let’s listen to some great music and share some ideas, hopes, and dreams. I promise not to whisper. Twitter/FB/Instagram – @ThatPaulHorton


12 midnight-5:00am:  Josh Gears

Hi, it’s Josh Gears! I’d like to tell you that I was raised by poodles out in the forest, but my parents and station management told me not to. Actually, I rose through the ranks of board-op for sports and syndicated countdown shows until I finally got a shot at overnights. Thanks again for listening and I promise we’ll have fun on any day that ends with “y”!



3:00pm – 6:00pm (Sundays):  El Bueno, La Mala, y El Feo – Spanish Programming

We brought together the three best Regional Mexican personalities to create “El Bueno, La Mala y El Feo” (The Good, The Bad and The Ugly), a music-intensive radio show with a blend of humor, social sarcasm and exclusive interviews.

Each cast member possesses a completely different style that represents important demographic groups among Hispanics: the young millennial, the Spanish dominant, and the assimilated, family oriented Latino. Their different backgrounds, format knowledge and experience bring a blend of talent and content to form a winning team.
