Diane Hering

Membership Director

Diane Hering is currently the Membership Director for KZYX.

Diane is in so many ways the prototype KZYX person. Diane has been the host of the very popular Lunch on the Back Porch for too many years to mention but she has also been the stations General Manager and interim General Manger on two separate occasions and is the head coordinator for the pledge drives at KZYX.

Her knowledge of bluegrass can't be rivaled and cheerful presentation leave all feeling good on a Saturday afternoon.

One of the original founders of KZYX, Michael Shapiro passed away on March 21, 2017 at the age 74. Born in Buffalo, New York, he moved to Boonville with his wife, Sharon, in 1968. Michael, an active member of the Anderson Valley community he loved, he worked with Sean Donovan and a group of local residents to create the station, and remained a supporting member throughout its history. He was a real estate broker in Mendocino County, and loved splitting firewood, fishing in his pond, gardening, watching wildlife, attending his boys’ sporting events, and creatively solving problems.
