Duane Murley

duanemurley2016Duane Murley was born and raised in Sac City Iowa, where his parents and two brothers and their families still live. Duane’s interest in radio started with spending time on his grandparents farm and listening to 540 KWMT on the tractor radio while out bailing hay, cultivating, plowing late at night, what ever he was doing on the tractor, the radio was on…and long days in the combine also found the radio tuned to 540…..In Jr. High, Duane took an interest and became involved with the High School radio station KSAC…nestled away in a little studio that sat above the High School Auditorium. There are still a hand full of Sac High Graduates that are still in radio today……While in the Radio Program, Duane was asked to fill in quite regularly for a local lady, Vivian Buckingham, that did a 10 minute newscast on KAYL Radio in Storm Lake Monday thru Saturday…..This started in 8th grade and continued until he began working at 94.5 KKEZ…now known as MIX 94.5….Today Duane calls Rockwell City home, where he lives with his wife Darcy and daughter Brandi, who is perusing her Masters Degree at Oklahoma State in Stillwater, Oklahoma…As part of her Masters Program, she has been accepted in to The Peace Corp, and will be in Uganda for 27 Months beginning June 1, 2016…Duane is active on the Rockwell City Fire Department as well as many other organizations. ……You can hear Duane 10 til 2 on True Country 540 KWMT and 2 til 7 …as well as a shift here and there on weekends…..Duane has been with KWMT since 1985…working both full and part-time while having other jobs along the way.
