The Staff of KRUX


 

General Manager: Austin Martin-Likes

Austin is the General Manager of KRUX. He takes credit for the hard work of others, and helps to facilitate productive relationships between the station and NMSU. You can hear Austin’s show “Punk + Junk” on Tuesdays at 11pm. If you need to contact him about boring manager stuff, he’d be happy to take your call at 575-646-2453 or correspond with you through kruxgm@nmsu.edu.

Austin is a Senior studying English Literature, and History. He coaches the Mayfield high school Debate team, loves radio, and looks cute in ball caps.


 

Programming: Josiah Armstrong

Josiah is the programming director of KRUX. We put his Business major skills, and his meddling experience to good use here where Josiah is the station’s Grand Scheduler: If it’s on air, it has crossed J’s desk. In the war against boring radio, Josiah is our station’s general: you can find him on the frontlines playing the best of brass on his show Max Brass every Friday at 11 am. If you have a message for the community or think your voice should be on 91.5 FM send him a message at kruxprog@nmsu.edu

 

 

 

Programming Assistant: Myra Rommes

Myra is J’s assistant, your host on Tail Lights, and a correspondent for The Blah Blah Blah. She bothered us until we gave her a job. And another job. And another job. Now she’s running the place. Seriously don’t ask Austin anything—if you have a question send it to myraaida@nmsu.edu. Myra is a Freshman and an applicant for NMSU’s CMI program.

Underwriting: Arriyanna Edwards

Arriyanna “Ajaye” Edwards is the KRUX Marketing Director. It’s her job to explain how awesome college radio is and to help people purchase underwriting announcements on KRUX. In addition to spreading the good word and making KRUX converts, Ajaye is an ICT major and a professional DJ. Her interests include being awesome and giving community members great deals on radio announcements. If you need to get the word out about your next event, contact her on kruxads@nmsu.edu


 

 

Production Manager: Zane Chaffee

Lots of hair and lots of talent. Zane Chaffee is the Production Director for KRUX. This daring journalism major has done it all—he writes, he marches, and he spins classic rock every Sunday. Somehow he also finds time to make us sound better than we are by creating and editing all of our announcements, and on-air promotions. If you’re an underwriter, Zane will craft your message with great care and skill. If you’re a DJ that hasn’t recorded a show promo, he will craft your punishment with subtle and devastating cruelty. Nice guy. Send him a message on kruxprod@nmsu.edu


 

 

Music Director: Megan Moran

Megan is the reason you can’t stop listening to KRUX. She’s our Music Director and has been in charge of adding addictive picks to the KRUX rotation since 2018. This busy grad student sifts through piles of mail from promoters looking for the gems that get you hooked on college radio. We were first introduced to Megan’s product on The Woogie, but once a week just wasn’t enough. If you too are suffering from #WoogieWithdrawl consider sweating it out in one of the yoga classes that Megan teaches, or try taking the edge off at the Bosque Brewery where she is a bartender. You can also suggest new music, or submit your own work for her consideration by emailing her on kruxfmmusic@gmail.com.


 

Network Engineer: Grace Igwe

Grace goes toe-to-toe with the forces of tech every day for KRUX.  As the station’s Chief Engineer, she fixes the stuff we break, and keeps us on the air. She doesn’t have a show yet because she first has to invent a microphone that can withstand the force of that much knowledge. Grace is studying Environmental Science and Mechanical Engineering which probably means she’s going to save the planet—you can send your thank-you notes to kruxtech@nmsu.edu
