Back in 1974 while still attending Florida State University, Jon took his first paying radio job at Tallahassee Christian station WCVC. When he graduated in 1978, he moved to Lakeland and took the evening shift at WCIE and later became its Program Director and Station Manager. Today the industry regards him as one of the pioneers of the contemporary Christian music format, having also worked for the K-LOVE Christian Radio Network, The Word in Music Satellite Network, and KBIQ in Colorado Springs, CO.
Since 1996 Jon has been Program Director at KSBJ in Houston and is currently Vice-President of Operations there. His talents have helped the station become a three-time GMA “Dove” winner for Major Market Station of the Year, two-time R&R Non-commercial Station of the Year, and the 2003 NRB Radio Station of the Year. He, himself, was named the R&R Christian Radio Programmer of the Year in 2003 and 2004.
Jon speaks frequently at seminars and has served on the board of directors of the Gospel Music Association and Christian Music Broadcasters Association. He also leads seminars in other countries through KSBJ’s Worldwide Mentoring efforts and has hosted Share-a-thons through ShareMedia Services for more than 10-years, consulting client stations in both programming and fundraising initiatives.
