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).

Schedule

M-F 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Easy Trick To Test Your Batteries

I read somewhere that you can test a good and bad battery with one simple test. Simply take the battery and hold it about a half-inch from a hard surface and drop it lightly. If it stands up, the battery is still good. If it topples over, then the battery is bad. I decided to test the theory myself.

‘Texting Hat’ Solves Problem

Let me get this out of the way first. I'm not really much of a texter. I do it when I have to, but I prefer just talking to someone either on the phone or in-person. But I may be fighting a losing cause. People have become so addicted to looking down at their phones that it seems like the art of eye-contact is being lost.

Message To Dad…In Space

Yesterday was my birthday. I got nice cards from my wife, my kids and even my dog. Over the years my favorite cards have always been the hand-made cards from my kids when they were young. As a father I can't imagine anything better in the world. Unless it was a message that was 'out of this world'.
