Live Oak story

As our weather warms over the summer, we're approaching peak rattlesnake season in California. Emily Taylor, Professor of Biology at Cal Poly, is the author of the book "California Snakes and How to Find Them".


Carol started as a newsroom volunteer at KCBX in the summer of 2017, inspired by her daughter's internship with KCBX News. She joined the KCBX staff in January, 2018. Carol started her radio career at Cal Poly’s KCPR, then moved on to become the director of programming and a morning host at KKUS (US98). Her voice was heard on advertisements and on KSBY TV for many years as well.
