Duncan Lively

Director of Programming & Operations

Duncan Lively joined the KCLU staff in 2015. He manages the station's on-air hosts, attends to relationships with programming partners, oversees broadcast and non-news digital content, and is responsible for operation of KCLU’s five broadcast stations.

Lively started his public radio career in 1993 as a reporter and Morning Edition host at KEDT, Corpus Christi, TX. In the years that followed he was a reporter and manager at Capital Public Radio in Sacramento, Program Director at WMFE in Orlando, General Manager at KAZU, Monterey Bay and Station Manager for Radio at KVCR-TV & FM, San Bernardino.

Prior to his public radio career, Lively worked in television news production including three years as resident photojournalist for NBC News in its Moscow bureau. 

Lively was born in Oxnard at the Lying In Hospital and Sanatorium on 5th Street.  His roots in the region run deep--a lane in Dennison Park above Ojai is named after his grandfather. He and his wife, a former Caltrans Environmental Planner, live with their three cats near downtown Ventura in a 95-year-old bungalow which he describes as "an ongoing capital campaign."
