Cindy Daigneault
General Manager

A Midwestern born and corn fed gal, Cindy (affectionately known as Atilla the Hunny by her staff) moved to California seeking not fame, but warmer weather. As a broadcast graduate of Brown Institute she started her radio career in the Midwest before escaping the sub zero temps and fleeing to California. She moved across country alone pulling a uhaul and only her Siamese cat for company, landing on the Coast in Ventura.

Lucky in love, she met her husband Gary working at a radio station in “the Valley”. Shortly after that they moved to the Hi Desert (Cindy said those corn stalks look funny upon seeing her first cactus).

After 10 years at another station Cindy and Gary built KCDZ which they’ve been running since 1989. Active in many non profits locally, Cindy has recently started performing in Community Theatre. So now she doesn’t just sing and dance for her advertising clients! She’s also turned her avocations of travel and photography into vocations. In her “Spare” time she’s a travel agent and has had four feature gallery shows of her Fine Art Photography.

Sara Snyder
Traffic Manager/Webmaster/Graphics/IT
(what the heck doesn’t she do here?!)

Yep, that’s a lot of titles. We like to think of Sara as the “glue” that holds us all together. We’re a real close knit family run business and Sara is the big sister to everyone! When ever anyone has a problem you’ll hear “Sara…” emanating from that persons office (especially the not so tech worthy). This is the second website rebuild that Sara has worked on for Z107.7FM in the past 5 years (isn’t it purty?!).

Having been with the station a total of 8 years, with a few stints off to raise three beautiful children (her biggest blessing) Sara is often the person you may first talk to or see at Z107.7FM.

What you may not know about her is that she plays keyboard, loves to sketch and write… and she admits to being a “Big Bang Theory” quality geek.

Linda Thayer
Advertising Consultant

Born to Gypsies of the theatre, Linda credits most of her early knowledge to her cousin Mark Bresler, a beloved international corporate leader and scouting enthusiast. She couldn’t escape Ohio fast enough! In the early years, Linda managed over 70 shows all across the country with stars like Joan Fontaine, Myrna Loy, and a lot of other old stars no one has heard of anymore… and eventually landed in Hollywood (and Joshua Tree 25 years ago) working with the Roseanne show, Bad Santa, Six Feet Under, True Blood and a lot of other unnecessary shows and projects. In between the film and television shenanigans, Linda is most proud of her work for both Opening and Closing Ceremonies for the Olympics in Atlanta and Salt Lake City, making giant whimsical structures and herding volunteers, admittedly all of it oddly rewarding. Once she caught on to radio through Gary’s ROP class, she knew her next mission… no longer willing to leave the beauty of the Hi Desert, Linda now sells image and air space for Z107.7.
