Corby Anderson's long strange trip to becoming the first ever Executive Director at KNDK began as a teenage sportscaster and DJ for his high school radio station, KVHS in Concord, California. Fresh FCC license in hand, he sat before the console with a stack full of PSA's on "carts" and his favorite hard rock albums, looked out of the window to create the weather report, potted up the microphone fader which triggered the ON THE AIR light that has never gone off since.
After earning degrees in Radio & TV Broadcasting at Butte Community College and Appalachian State University, Corby pursued a career that over the course of 30 years has meandered the entire media spectrum - from radio, TV, film and video production to corporate audio visual technician, community media management, radio engineer, touring live event video director, event producer, marketing media management, freelance writer, business owner, and teacher.
Corby has been a DJ, news host and sportscaster at KDNK over the years, as well as having served on the KDNK Board, the Pitkin County Translator Advisory Board, the Carbondale Access Committee, and helped found and produce the Roaring Fork Veterans History Project. He was hired to help launch and administer RadioCMC, a college station for Colorado Mountain College, where he wrote the curriculum and taught the first classes of the Digital Media Production tract for the newly-hatched Issacson School For New Media.
"I am deeply honored to be helping to sail the Good Ship KDink and wholeheartedly believe in the power of community radio to inspire, inform, educate and entertain."
