Congratulations to Station Manager Jared McKetiak
on May 5,2017 by michael

This week marks 15 years of service at UMFM for Station Manager Jared McKetiak. While he's held the lead role at the station for over a decade, he got his start volunteering as a board op for Winnipeg radio legend Howard Mandshein and other great programs in the early years of the station before moving to the Program Director position.

During his decade and a half at UMFM, Jared has been involved at a leadership level with the Winnipeg Ska & Reggae Festival, the National Campus/Community Radio Association and more recently the Big Fun Festival as well as a strong supporter of many other local music, culture and issues festivals and initiatives.

He built the Pledge-O-Rama funding drive from the ground up and made it the annual success it has been, and has been a champion for the local arts scene and a tireless supporter of the volunteers who make the great programming at UMFM.

Big congratulations to Jared on his 15 years of service, and an even bigger thank you from the rest of us at UMFM.
