Z-96.3 The Lake plays familiar music from the 80’s all the way up to today’s soft hits. The music is light enough for background, but bright enough to turn up and enjoy. It’s music that helps people feel good! Z-96.3 The Lake is the perfect workplace radio station, but our listeners enjoy it at home and on weekends too. We are the broadcast home for Kansas City Chiefs Football, Kansas Jayhawk Football & Men’s Basketball as well as area high school football and basketball.
WHAT WE PLAY
Liz & Chris Morning ShowMornings 5a-9a
Hi, I’m Liz Bell, a single mom to 2 gorgeous girls! I love throwing theme parties, read that as 'Pinterest addict.' I believe there is no better feeling than a sloppy ponytail and yoga pants. I enjoy traveling, things that sparkle and my partner, Chris Tyler.
Chris Tyler here! I also have two kids, plus an awesome wife! I run marathons, but in real life I love to spend time at our neighborhood pool. And I’m a huge sports fan. It's hard for me to choose a favorite type of music! I like many different types! Except maybe Gangsta Rap. I have to draw the line somewhere. ☺
Andrea JaxsonMiddays 9a-2p
I’m Andrea Jaxson and when I’m not on the radio, there is a good chance you will find me making plans to travel to a new, fun and exciting city or country. My husband Mike, A.K.A “Marvelous Mike”, is completely supportive of my need to capture the perfect “shot” while I roam the streets looking for unique architecture and landscape. We share a love for music, art and travel which makes for a fun life together! I absolutely love sharing time with my nieces and nephews and as soon as football season rolls around, it’s all about food, family and dark chocolate!
Karl SouthcottAfternoons 2p-7p
Karl Southcott here! I’m a giant movie fan, and love everything from the classic films to all the new exciting flicks. I enjoy the outdoors too, and am crazy about being around the water. I love swimming, kayaking, surfing and diving. I’ve always figured that I’m at least part fish. I also like to hang with my family. My two small boys keep me very busy! Musically, I’m crazy about everything from Sinatra to Bruno Mars. Sharing this music on the radio is such a kick!
Jay MichaelsEvenings 7p-Midnight
My name is Jay, and I'm so excited to get to hang out with you every weeknight! I love reality TV and tweet way too much, ohh yeah, I sometimes buy stuff I shouldn’t buy off TV (I have way too many “as seen on TV” appliances in the kitchen!) I tell people I'm a foodie but, I'm really just a picky eater. Ohh yeah, I’m terrified of squirrels and ceiling fans. Feel free to connect with me on social media anytime and say hi! @JayMichaels
John LaurentiOvernights Midnight-5a
Hi, I’m John Laurenti! Thanks for taking a little bit of your time to find out about me. I’ve been fortunate to have been doing this radio thing for a while and it’s the best job I’ve ever had! Every day is different and fun! Plus, I get to play music for you. In my spare time I try to go to as many concerts as I can, 2,500 and counting, playing golf (badly), and I’ve done a little bit of acting as well. I’ll see you on the radio!
