iHeartMedia Names Geoff "G-Off" Owens PD For KXJM/Portland & KUBE/Seattle-Tacoma
March 16, 2017

iHeartMedia has announced that Geoff “G-Off” Owens has been named Program Director for Rhythmic Hip Hop KXJM (JAM'N 107.5)/Portland and KUBE (KUBE 104.9)/Seattle-Tacoma, effective immediately. Owens will also serve as afternoon drive host for both stations, a position he’s held at JAM'N 107.5 since 2012. JAM’N 107.5 and KUBE 104.9 have a strong cross-platform presence and broadcast several popular personalities including Big Boy’s Neighborhood, Nina Chantele, Kristina Kage, Tra'Renee, Sir Mix-A-Lot, and Deuce.

Owens will be responsible for day to-day programming operations for JAM’N 107.5 and KUBE 104.9. He will work closely with on-air personalities and sales to oversee the on-air content, digital footprint and music programming for both stations.

“Nobody knows the JAM'N 107.5 brand, core audience and Portland community better than Geoff,” said Tim Herbster, Regional SVP/Programming for iHeartMedia’s Pacific Northwest Region. “It’s always special when you can watch a hard-working employee’s career grow from intern to Program Director. Geoff’s on-air skills and programming vision will also be extremely beneficial as we continue to grow KUBE 104.9 in Seattle/Tacoma.”

Owens is a well-known local media personality who has worked at JAM’N 107.5 since 2004, when he joined the radio station as an intern. He was promoted to night on-air host in 2010 and moved to host afternoons at the station in 2012. In 2016, Owens was named Assistant Program Director and Music Director for JAM’N 107.5.

“I’m looking forward to further serving our Portland community and listeners while working with the legendary KUBE 104.9 and extending my love affair with the Northwest into the Seattle/Tacoma market,” said Owens. “Thank you to the iHeartMedia Pacific Northwest team for their continued trust in me and the opportunities to grow my career. It’s going to be an exciting 2017.”
