Bryce Dix

Interim News Director

Bryce Dix has been listening to public radio all of his life. Whether it be a podcast (This American Life, of course), a news magazine, or a local talk show, you can count on Bryce to always have his headphones on. 

He got his start in broadcasting as a general assignment news reporter and NPR Weekend Edition news host at New Mexico’s largest NPR affiliate station, KUNM-FM in Albuquerque, New Mexico. During his time, he won several awards for his reporting & podcasting work at the station.


From there, Bryce went to New Mexico PBS where he produced television segments for New Mexico In Focus and served as a producer/editor of Growing Forward, an award-winning podcast about the cannabis industry in New Mexico. 

News doesn’t occupy ALL of his time, however. Bryce likes to run and shoot film photography whenever he gets the chance.

We all have heard about the most recent coronavirus guidelines released by the Centers for Disease Control– fully-vaccinated people are finally allowed to go mask-less indoors. Well, in most cases that is. But, it’s controversial and even politicized, for many reasons. Some are confused by the CDC’s seemingly wishy-washy stance on how to properly handle the pandemic. Others are unsure who or what to believe now-a-days.
