KBPK gave Jared the tools to take on the radio world. "I didn't know a thing about radio going into the program but quickly wanted to learn everything there was about it. I was in the last class to learn reel-to-reel cutting. I use the digital audio editing skills I learned on a weekly basis. KBPK holds a special place in my memories and I still tune in when in the orange county area." After transferring to CSUF, Jared also started working for Clear Channel Radio at KFI and morning show co-producer for their standards music station, KLAC. While indoors with a microphone and a big window looking out, he realized the outdoors was more his calling.
That thought lead to his next job interest, Outdoor Channel TV. Starting in 2006 Jared has traveled to 45 states and 4 countries as a videographer, field producer, producer, director, show host and manager. Jared currently manages the creation, acquisition and curation of OutdoorChannel.com video content to their global audience and directing/producing two online original programs. He still hosts interviews with show talent and is also the narrator for a TV show, the Voice of God for Outdoor Channel's Golden Moose Awards show and commercial voice overs. When he's not "on the clock" you'll find Jared climbing mountains, racing Triathlons and exploring the outdoors in every way possible.
