Carly Evans

Hi, I’m Carly, a transplant from Kansas. I’ve always been a huge talker and love music; sooo radio was pretty well a natural progression for me. I started radio in Hays right out of High School, worked my way up the ladder through college and fell in love with Country Music, especially Red Dirt and Texas Country. From Hays, I moved to a Country station in Manhattan, Kansas (the Little Apple, not the big one). A couple of years later, I was fortunate to find an amazing opportunity with KORA, made the move to the Brazos Valley  and here I am! Live music is my biggest passion and thankfully, this area has plenty of that coming through. When I’m not focusing on music (which is rare) I love reading and being outdoors, especially in the summer. I’m a total lake and camping girl and try to squeeze that in as much as possible. I’m also somewhat sarcastic and have a huge love of coffee, wine, and chocolate.

Brandie Pic

Brandie Alexander

Howdy!  I’m Brandie Alexander – Fightin’ Texas Aggie Class of ’93. WHOOP!  I was born and bred in Brenham, Texas where I was raised on good old fashioned country music.  From early on my parents took me to the dance halls with them (that was allowed back in the day).  The experience gave me a great appreciation for steel guitar, fiddle and the classics.  It’s hard to beat a good two-step by Ray Price or Merle Haggard.  It’s because of my deep rooted love for country music that I do what I do.  There’s something to be said for waking up each morning and truly enjoying my job.  In fact, when you look at it like that it’s not really a job at all.  It’s a passion.

My other passion is my family.  I’m blessed to have a wonderful husband, Brian, and three great kiddos – Aiden, Emrie and Evan.  When I’m not at the radio station, I’m hanging out with them.  Our most recent love is spending time at my parents’ farm in Deanville riding four-wheelers, shooting guns and fishing. All skills that will come in handy when the zombies attack.

My sixth grade class might be surprised to learn you actually CAN make a living at being a dork. I’ve been doing radio for a while now, most of that in Texas. I love seeing a live show. My favorites have to be at bars versus a theater though. Something about running around having a good time and hearing great music at a place like Hurricane Harry’s, or at the tap just feels better to me than sitting in a seat and watching. I love to read, watch movies and go to brunch on Sunday’s. This is starting to sound like an eharmony profile page. Just know this, if there’s a show, I’m going to have tickets to it, to give to you. I also do fun giveaways on my twitter page. Check out the links below and keep listening to win!

Ashlen Ray

My name is Ashlen Ray, Fightin’ Texas Aggie Class of 2015. I’m from the small town of Needville, Texas where I grew up smiling, talking non-stop, and baton twirling at Friday night football games. Since then, the combo of music and being in front of crowds stole my heart and led me to become a college feature twirler. After my transfer to Texas A&M University, I majored in agricultural communications and journalism and chased my next dream in radio broadcast. Outside of KORA, my happy place is anywhere with salty air, a porch for sitting, my family or my tail-less cat named after Josh Abbott.

Texas Nation with Dr. Ron

Dr. Ron has worked in every aspect of Texas country music including playing in bands, running sound,  booking and concert promotion and production.  Most might recognize him as DJ, manager, and booking agent from the legendary night club, Texas Hall of Fame for over a decade.  The transition to radio seemed obvious.  In addition to hosting Texas Nation, he also serves as co-host for  Rusty Baker’s Texas & Beyond Radio Show.
