In January 2006 station founder, owner and internationally known talk show phenomenon Art Bell chose Karen Jackson to manage and operate his station; KNYE. The search for a successor to fill this very special position included applicants from across the country. Karen was selected above the rest because Art’s intuition told him her unique background and commitment to the community made her an ideal candidate for such a diverse and demanding job.
Originally from San Diego, Karen’s varied background includes more than 20 years commercial banking, including a Senior Vice President position with South West Bank and 10 years in marketing and advertising. However, managing KNYE has been the ultimate challenge for this accomplished woman.
