Meet Programming Director Race Hobbs

Race is the Programming Director for KUNXdb. Race was born in Ft. Smith, Arkansas and raised there most of his life. The Fort Smith River Valley is a friendly, cozy place nestled in the Arkansas River Valley, with plains to the west and prairies to the east and national forests to the north and south with some of the best hunting and fishing in the world right here in what Arkansan’s call “The Natural State! This is the hometown Race was raised in. Keen on hunting and fishing, Race has a deeply rooted love for his environment – a love for the wildlife and the land of his home, respect for his ancestors and the trials they had to overcome to make this a place they could call home. Family, history, and the natural world have shaped everything about Race throughout his entire life.

He graduated from Ft. Smith Northside SR. High in 1987 with a major in History. Race enjoyed his Civil Service work for the US Navy at NAS- Dallas as a GS-4 in Fitness/Recreational Services. Race also worked as an FM Broadcaster for 13 years at 3 Radio Stations in 3 different markets. He has lived and worked in Los Angeles, CA., Dallas, TX., ABQ, NM., and Little Rock, AR. Race is the founder of KGRAdb Radio, the Global Radio Alliance and served as Executive Director and Head of Programming for KGRAdb for over 10 years. Currently, Race is working for his long-time friend, Margie Kay on a new project, starting a brand-new radio/video streaming platform called, KUNXdb ‘The X’! Explaining the UneXplained…

Race brings with him years of terrestrial radio experience to the digital broadcasting revolution. Race is one of the first personalities to start live remotes from UFO/Paranormal events around the country, making appearances to meet listeners and broadcast live radio. With more than a decade programming talk radio, hosting his own shows, and thousands of hours in the producer’s seat, there’s probably not anyone more knowledgeable about the research community and where it might all be heading.

Race has researched and investigated the UFO Phenomenon for over 30 years. In 1990, he was a witness to something very unusual sighting over south Ft Smith, he was not sure what it was, but it was something that he had never seen before and it spawned his curiosity into the UFO subject! He started The Ft Smith Arial Phenomenon Research Group in 1992 and began officially investigating sightings in the River Valley Area. Race is one of thousands, perhaps millions of people that have a true interest in the search for the truth regarding the UFO Phenomenon things unexplained. Race says, “I continue to look forward to the day we all know the truth about what has clearly been invading the air space, over our cities and towns, our military installations and country sides with absolute impunity. One thing is for certain, UFO’s have been here, UFOs are here, and everyday citizens from every walk of life are seeing them.”

Today, his passions include family, researching the UFO phenomenon, being in nature, sky watching and working his faith in God through fellowship in the Catholic Church. Race resides in the Beautiful Fort Smith River Valley with his Lovely wife Robin Bird, 3 children and 6 grandchildren!
