Tom Garrett – The Y105 Morning Show
Hi! I’m Tom Garrett, and for the past 15 years I’ve called Rochester my home. Originally from St. Paul’s east side, my radio career has brought me to the east coast and back. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been getting up at 3:45am for the past 25 years.
My wife, Julie, and I are the proud parents of Michael. He’s 12 years cancer-free and studying to be a teacher at Winona State. When we moved to town in ’97 he was only 5 years old. Time flies, indeed.
I’m here to wake you up each weekday morning with great music, the hot stories of the day, and on occasion some really great prizes. Thanks for making Y105 part of your morning routine!
Afternoon Drive with Brent Ackerman
I am the Operations Manager for all six Townsquare Media-Rochester stations. I’ve been in Rochester radio since 1984. In that time I’ve been an on-air talent, Production Director, Music Director, Program Director and now Operations Manager.
Radio is my passion. I enjoy working with on-air talent, designing and executing successful promotions with our sales staff and clients and making sure our stations are active in the community both on-the-air and on the streets.
As a Rochester native, it’s been great not only to grow up in one of America’s best cities but to also raise my family here as well. I’m a proud dad of three terrific kids…Andy, Kelsey and Logan. My wife Laurie and I are also very involved in our community. In my spare time, I enjoy golfing, bowling, grilling and following my favorite Minnesota sports teams (still waiting on that first Vikings’ Super Bowl trophy).

Jerry Miller Sundays 8am to Noon
Jerry Miller, aka “JM in the AM” is a native of Zumbrota. After high school, joined the Navy and spent 4 years having a ball. Started radio career working at the College of William and Mary extension in Norfolk, Virginia. An opening happened at WNOR in Norfolk, was hired part time, and worked weekends. Four years later, finished the Navy requirements and returned home and enrolled in Brown Institute of Broadcasting and Electronics in Minneapolis under the G.I. bill. Graduated there and ended up the morning man at KWEB Rochester. Later, went to KNXR Rochester and worked weekends and fill-in announcing there. Then, when Y 105 went on the air in February of 1993, started working Sunday mornings from 8 to noon and am still there doing 8 to noon, and am enjoying it very much. So, after countless TV spots and voice-overs for radio spots, I’m still here working weekends. One of these days I’ll qualify to work regular shifts.
Join me some Sunday morning between 8 and noon on Y 105…..and thanks.
