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 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

New Apple Ad Is Very Emotional

Let me say this upfront, the only "apple" anything that I've ever owned is an actual red apple that you eat. So I'm not pitching Apple in any way, shape or form (I'm very happy with my Android). That said, when I was watching television last weekend, I saw this commercial for Apple and it was really good

Mistletoe Backpack Really Works

When I was a young single man, I wish I would have thought of the "Mistletoe Backpack". A young man with a plan came up with the idea of attaching a mistletoe to his backpack and then walking out into a crowd to see what happens.

Watch This: Holiday Smartphone Magic!

Sometimes I can barely figure out how to set an alarm or find a picture on my smartphone. I know I could never choreograph anything like this using multiple phones.

Why Hawaiians Say ‘Kalikimaka’ Instead Of ‘Christmas’

The other day I played a Christmas song on Y105 called "Mele Kalikimaka" by Bing Crosby. It's a catch song that means "Merry Christmas" in Hawaiian. But it got me to thinking, why don't they just say Merry Christmas? I found out that it's not that Hawaii has a completely different word for Christmas, it's just that Kalikimaka is the closest Hawaiian word for it

Did you know that today is "Ugly Christmas Sweater Day"? I don't personally own any ugly Christmas sweaters (or any Christmas sweaters at all actually). I feel like I should have one, but where do you get one?
