Jim Rondeau

General Manager

Jim Rondeau became KLCC General Manager on June 10, 2019. 

Rondeau moves to Eugene from Southern California where he co-managed radio and television stations in southern California, including the partnership of non-commercial KSBR of Saddleback College and KCSN of Cal State Northridge. His broadcasting career includes stops in Seattle, San Diego and Los Angeles. His successful run at NPR affiliate KCLU earned him the Los Angeles Press Club award for Best Radio Anchor two years in a row. Commercial broadcasting highlights include Gavin Station of the Year honors at KRUZ Santa Barbara, afternoon host at KCBS-FM Los Angeles, and anchor/reporter at legendary CBS news outlet KNX.

"KLCC is one of the jewels of the public radio system,” says Jim.  “The passion and dedication of its staff and volunteers, combined with support from Lane Community College, exemplify community service at its best. As a child my family lived in Eugene before moving to Everett, Washington, so it feels like coming home. I'm anxious to be back in the beautiful Pacific Northwest."

He expressed his enthusiasm in a recent interview with Los Angeles media like this: “KLCC is #2 in the market, with a tremendous team that won three regional Murrow awards just last month… and you can’t go wrong with a station that runs its own Brewfest!” 

KLCC Staff is confident Jim will fit right in!
