As a native Oregonian, Jared has always wanted to be a part of radio here in Portland and after almost 20 years in radio he finally got that chance!

He started radio in Gresham at Mt. Hood C.C. and had a great chance to run a college station and work in college radio. Then the chase for radio work took him off to Eugene, Dallas Texas, and San Francisco. After a great run at LIVE105 in San Francisco for eleven years, it was time to come home to Oregon.

He is a proud father of two boys and loves being a dad. When he’s not on the links at Heron Lakes or East Moreland, he also enjoys hiking the Gorge and getting over to Central Oregon.

He loves live music. As of now his favorite venue is Doug Fir Lounge. He’s been to hundreds of shows and his favorite show to date is Roger Waters – The Wall. Any Arcade Fire show is a close second.
