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
