Boise Radio: Ron Harris New OM For Journal Stations

Journal Broadcast Group has added Ron Harris to its Boise Operations as the new Operation Manager for its radio division.

In his role, Harris will oversee operations of 107.1 K-Hits (KTHI-FM), 94.9 The River (KRVB-FM), 100.3 The X (KQXR-FM) and Variety Rock 105.1 (KJOT-FM).

Harris has more than 25 years of broadcasting experience and most recently was the Operation Manager in Tri-Cities, Wash. Prior to that he was Director of Operations for Clear Channel at their Yakima, Wash., cluster. He also was on-air talent in Seattle at 107.7 The End and 97.3 KBSG, and National Format Manager for Broadcast Programming in Seattle for seven years. Harris graduated from Clover Park College in Tacoma, Wash., and was a part-time instructor for their Radio Broadcasting Program on campus.

“I am beyond thrilled to be moving to Boise and to have the opportunity to work for one of the finest companies in our industry, Journal Broadcast Group,” Harris said, adding that he is looking forward to joining the staff. “It would be a massive understatement to say that I am stoked!”

“We did an extensive search across the country for the right person to lead our programming division, and we are very confident that Ron is the right person for the job. He brings a wealth of experience and a proven track record to the company,” said Roy Williams, radio station manager of the four Journal Broadcast Group Boise Operations stations.
