Administration Staff

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.

LaVickie Patterson
Director of First Impressions/Office Goddess

LaVickie Patterson is a Marine Veteran originally from Tallahassee, FL. LaVickie exited the Marines in 2013 and went on to pursue her education in Communications Studies, earning an Associates degree at Copper Mountain College in 2018. LaVickie’s prior internship at Z107.7 and recent graduation from California State University San Bernardino with her bachelor’s degree in Public Relations has given her a great interest in broadcasting and radio. As a new staff member here at Z107.7, she expresses gratitude to the station for welcoming her on board and is honored to be a part of the team.

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 third 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 14 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.
