Jeff Leighton


I have a BA from the University of St. Thomas with a concentration in Marketing and Finance. I’m proud to be a second-generation broadcaster following in my Dad’s footsteps. It’s an honor that our radio stations are part of so many great communities. I always felt that if I even loved radio half as much as my Dad did, I’d be okay.

Why you love your work:

No two days at Leighton Media are ever the same.

Personal Motto:

From my dad “If you love what you do you will never work a day in your life!”

Favorite Song of All-time and Why:

I’m more of a talk radio person.
