Jon Hall

Chief Engineer

Jon Hall, a native of Bloomington, got a start at 5-6 years of age when he used a Mr. Microphone as a “transmitter.” With the passing of the years, Jon started reading Ham Radio magazine, built radio receiver and transmitter kits, and assembled his own tower and antenna. By the time he was in high school, Jon had built his own radio station – using his income from a paper route as well as gift money. His station could barely be heard beyond the walls of his home, but it was a start.

Hall has worked in broadcasting for about 20 years.
