Serving as General Manager of KISU FM radio from 1999 to June, 2019, Jerry is now enjoying retirement and plans to continue announcing ISU athletics events. We extend our best wishes and gratitude to Jerry for his nearly 20 years working to build a faithful public radio audience and ensuring a long-term home for KISU throughout Eastern Idaho.
A native of southeast Idaho, he started in public radio as an intern to Bruce Christensen at BYU. Christensen later went on to become the President and CEO of the PBS (Public Broadcasting System).
Jerry is the Director of Student Media at Idaho State University which includes KISU FM 91 and "The Bengal", ISU's student-produced newspaper and website. He is currently "The Voice of the Bengals" for ISU Football and ISU Men's Basketball games.
His career includes over 23 years in commercial radio, four of those at superstation KSL in Salt Lake City, and nine of those as news director for KLCE (Classy 97 in east Idaho). He has an amazing ability to comfortably call sports games on radio with notable experience broadcasting games for and alongside the legendary Hot Rod Hundley for the Utah Jazz of the NBA and numerous high schools and universities. Jerry was named the Idaho Sportscaster of the Year in 1985. He is in his 21st year as the voice of ISU men's basketball and football, and he also was the voice of ISU women's basketball for eight seasons. He has also won numerous awards for his work as a news and sports reporter.
Jerry says the best thing about being at KISU FM 91 is the opportunity to work with great students. Under Miller's direction, KISU FM 91 has increased its broadcast power from 410 watts to 4500 watts, and in 2008 expanded its coverage into the Idaho Falls market broadcasting at 91.3 with the purchase of a radio translator there. Rexburg soon followed with a second translator broadcasting KISU's signal at 88.1 giving full coverage to all of East Idaho and the Upper Snake River Valley. In 2016, Jerry oversaw an online expansion of KISU.org that included a new revamped website with multi media, news, and two new internet audio streams. There was also a significant increase of ISU Women's sports coverage on KISU in 2016. He says he will continue to work to make KISU FM 91 one of the most effective tools Idaho State University has in its role of serving not only eastern Idaho, but the entire state.
