KAMB Staff Directory

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord..." Colossians 3:23

Tim Land

General Manager

Tim started working at KAMB as a volunteer in 1981 and over the years has served here as Announcer, Operations Director, Program Director and became the General Manager in 1994. He came to know Christ personally at age 20, after being invited to church by a friend.

He’s married to Debbie and they celebrated their 40th anniversary last August. Debbie is an R.N. and serves at the Alpha Pregnancy Help Center in Merced. They have two grown sons: Zack is a Special Ops pilot in the Air Force Reserve and lives in Florida with his wife Kelly and their incredibly cute daughter Elli and active toddler son Nathan; Son Jeremy is a Westmont Grad and works for the Merced County Elections Department, likes spicy food and stays in shape with daily long walks and riding his bike.

Tim’s interests, hobbies and tastes include: long walks with Deb, Bible study, serving on the finance commission in his church, swimming, spreadsheets, Big Band music, Hermeneutics, prime rib, baked potatoes, almost any dessert (especially key lime pie). His great, great, great grandfather Anthony J. Showalter wrote the music to “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms”.

Contact Tim for strategic planning, ministry opportunities, or any other issues that should come to the attention of management.

Wendy Barros

Administrative Assistant

I'm the Administrative Assistant and entered the KAMB Family in June of 2017.

I have lived in the Central Valley for 37 years and currently reside in our beloved small town with my husband, Mike of 16 years and two children, James and Kyla.

After being on staff for about 4 years now at Celebration Radio I can honestly say I love it more each day. The opportunity to work within a ministry that shares the Good News of Jesus Christ and His salvation is awesome!

When I'm not at KAMB, you can find me enjoying family life on a baseball diamond, soccer field or basketball court. Fishing is my absolute favorite pass time, only rivaled by camping and hiking.

I continue to look forward to the plans the Lord has orchestrated for me at KAMB.

Contact me with any questions regarding donations to Celebration Radio.

Deb Millin

Mid-Day Host

I've been a big fan of Christian music since I was about 9 years old or so. I would record Christian Rock radio shows on cassette tapes from a distant radio station that I could only hear clearly on dark, cloudy nights.

I was raised in a Christian home and became a follower of Jesus in elementary school. Once I was in college at a Christian school I chose to rededicate my life to Him and pursue broadcasting media as a ministry and a career.

Now as a mom of two young children that are less than two years apart, my life is busy and my heart is full. My husband Brent and I also have two dogs we enjoy rough-housing around with and two cats that love to cuddle. Aside from that I enjoy DJ'ing at church events, shopping online, playing vinyl records, collecting vintage clothes and retro accessories, and spending all sorts of time with our children.

I look forward to joining you each weekday from 10am-3pm here on KAMB!

Heather Simmons

Heather loves to spend time with her parents, siblings, and friends, and loves being involved in the community. She serves as an administrative assistant at Alpha Pregnancy Help Center and has acted in local theatre productions with Playhouse Merced, Merced Shakespearefest, and Merced College.

Heather also loves to laugh, read, search for treasures at thrift stores, drink coffee, and spend time with her cat.

She is excited for the opportunity to share and rejoice in the goodness of God on KAMB!
