Ken Dixon   Biography

WTRR    WLOQ    WBJW    WOMX    WOTS


Ken Dixon was a very late starter.  A lifelong fan of radio, he decided to give it a try in 1981 - when he was almost forty.  Part time and then full time work at WTRR-AM 1400 led to an opportunity to join the on-air staff at WLOQ-FM 103.1, where he did weekend shifts and filled in when someone took time off.  Soon, he was tapped for the overnight slot, which he filled for three and a half years before changing hats and becoming the station's full time copywriter. After quickly winning an Orlando ADDY award for one of his commercials, Ken was hired as Production Director at WBJW-FM 105.1.  In his four years there (and then at WOMX-FM 105.1), he won seven more ADDYs, including a trophy for best individual entry submitted in any advertising medium.  He also submitted the winning advertising campaign for Nationwide Insurance in a national competition among all Nationwide Communications-owned radio and television stations.  While at WBJW, he produced original comedy both for the "Breakfast Bunch" morning show and for national syndication by the Dorsey and Donnelly organization.  And he tutored broadcasting students in commercial voice technique. After leaving WOMX in 1990, Ken returned to WLOQ as Production Director and occasional on-air personality.  His promo series, ''See you on the radio'', for the Orlando Radio Broadcasters Association was selected as best among the entries created for that organization by stations in the market. Leaving radio production in 1994 to pursue other interests, he did the evening air shift at WOTS-AM 1220 for a while before a friend asked for his help managing a growing business.  A year later, he was one of the owners, and he remained involved until selling his share in 2009. Ken and his wife (Tracy Young) live in Deltona, where he is a freelance writer, editor and publisher. See more about Ken here.
