Jason Reed is the Director of Technology & Broadcasting at Blue Ridge Public Radio. He joined the station in October of 2014.
Jason grew up in the small community of Wears Valley, TN just outside of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg TN. After graduating from Warren Wilson College he started his career at Clear Channel Asheville, now iHeartRadio. In ten years’ time Jason worked his way from being a sales assistant to IT Manager for both the Asheville, NC and Greenville, SC markets. From there Jason moved to San Francisco in 2008 and worked as an IT consultant for many prominent venture capital and startup companies. Jason returned to Asheville, or “his home” as he says, in 2013.
Jason spends his spare time with his wife and two young children hiking in the mountains, gardening at home, and enjoying the amazing food, beer and musical offerings of the area.
