Sarah Bignall

Director of Operations

If you need to know the words to a particular song ask Sarah Bignall, the Director of Operations for Northern Community Radio.  She claims to know the words to all songs played on KAXE/KBXE.  Sarah is deeply involved with the day to day operation of the station assuring that things run efficiently and effectively.  She brings a particularly impressive expertise in marketing and graphic design to the job.  Sarah grew up in Grand Rapids and continues to live there with her husband and their two children…well…three if you include her favorite, the one with four legs.  Sarah is the go to person when you need a straight direct answer or opinion.  She continues to work to perfect  her “indoor voice”.
