Duncan Lively

Director of Programming & Operations

Duncan Lively joined the KCLU staff in 2015. He oversees the station's on-air staff, manages relationships with content partners, oversees non-news digital content, and is responsible for day-to-day operation of KCLU’s regional network of broadcast stations in Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties.  He also pinch hits for KCLU's regular on-air hosts.

Lively started his public radio career in 1993 as a reporter and Morning Edition host in Corpus Christi.  In the years that followed he was a reporter and manager at public radio stations in Stockton, Sacramento, Orlando, the Monterey Bay area and San Bernardino.  Prior to his public radio career, Lively worked in television news production including three years as resident photojournalist and editor in Moscow for NBC News.  

Lively was born in Oxnard at the Lying In Hospital and Sanatorium on 5th Street.  His roots in the south coast region run deep--a lane in Dennison Park above Ojai is named after his grandfather. He and his wife, a retired environmental planner, live with their two cats in a 1922-vintage Oldtown Ventura bungalow which he describes as "a never-ending capital campaign."
