Lee Leaving KFI For Redding OM Role

KFI “Wake Up Call With Jennifer Jones Lee” host/Bill Handel morning drive news anchor Jennifer Jones Lee will exit the iHeartMedia Los Angeles news/talk outlet later this month (6/26) to become operations manager of Results Radio’s five-station Redding, California cluster. Results Radio senior vice president Dave Shakesim states, “We’re fortunate to bring in Jennifer, who is strongly driven, proactive, and possesses tremendous leadership skills. She will lead our talented local team in evolving forward and keep our brands top-of-mind and necessary in the lives of our audiences.” Lee remarks, “I can’t thank Results Radio enough for this opportunity. After 30 years learning and working with amazing radio journalists and top newsrooms, the opportunity to shift into music with a challenging new position is more than I could’ve imagined. [I] can’t wait to begin this new chapter in my career.” Prior to joining KFI in 2016, Lee was San Francisco news/talk KGO’s morning drive news anchor and she worked in Sacramento for news/talk KFBK. This marks a return home for Lee, who began her career as a music personality on Redding’s KEWB. Among the five Results Radio-owned Redding stations she will oversee is sports talk KKXS “XS Sports 96.1.”
