Jason Brown

Operations Director

Jason is a bit of a public radio junkie, and eavesdrops on stations all over North America. His favorite program is RadioLab, and he sometimes ignores his family, severe weather, and basic traffic laws while listening to it. He thinks he reads more than most people, but concedes that’s not saying much. He enjoys working in public radio because he likes discovering new music and having access to what’s happening now. He lives with two dogs, who are relentless hug-beasts.
