Brady Safranek

General Manager / Bison Sports/ Mornings on KIX 96.5

Buffalo, Wyoming

Brady Safranek

Brady is the General Manager, host of the KIX 96.5 Morning Show, and Sports Director for the Big Horn Mountain Radio Network. Working in radio has allowed Brady to live in numerous states including South Dakota, Minnesota, and Iowa, before settling out west in beautiful Wyoming. Brady is originally from Illinois and decided he wanted to get into the radio business because he didn’t want a real job.  Spinning records (ok we don’t spin records anymore) and entertaining listeners sure sounded better than digging ditches or stamping license plates, so after finishing high school Brady went to broadcasting school at Brown College in Minnesota. Brady’s favorite part of his job is calling high school sports for the Buffalo Bison and Lady Bison. In his spare time, Brady likes to go hiking with his dog, camping, and especially fishing! He listens to all types of music but really loves to jam out to almost anything from the 1990s.

Spencer Porden

Mornings on 92.7 The X/Operations Manager— Originally from Oregon, but I have lived in Wyoming for most of my life. I started working in radio when I was 15 as a high school internship and stayed in for several years after that. I studied music in college, majoring in Jazz Trombone and Guitar. I took a brief hiatus from broadcasting and worked as a firefighter for the Forest Service for 3 years. I enjoy volunteering on two fire departments as a firefighter/EMT in Sheridan, skiing, working on classic cars, and playing music with several bands around Sheridan. When I’m not on-air, I also run my own ski repair business!
