Jon Norton

Audio Director

Northern Minnesota native and University of North Dakota grad Jon Norton has adapted well to what he considers the warm climate of Central Illinois.

He's also tuned into the vibrant Bloomington-Normal music scene. Sound Ideas is where you can hear his interviews with local and nationally touring musicians. They can also be read on the Music Features page of this very website. If you press him hard enough, he'll tell you Highway 309 is something he's pretty proud of, and possibly the coolest music format in the country.

Norton is also keenly interested in stories revolving around race, including racial disparities and the intersection of race and law enforcement.

Norton pays attention to ISU and Chicago Bulls basketball and Minnesota Twins and Chicago Cubs baseball. He treasures his time at home with his wife.
