“I’m so excited about this new opportunity with KSBJ!” said O’Donnell.  “Great program directors have led KSBJ, who I have great respect for.  They have done amazing work with making KSBJ the award-winning station that it is and I look forward to continuing their work.”

“KSBJ is pleased to announce Susan’s promotion as she has been a valuable member of the KSBJ team for close to two decades,” said Tim McDermott, president and general manager of KSBJ.  “Susan is a great leader and role model for our on-air team.  She has such a heart for our listeners. While she has been able to positively impact thousands through the morning show, now she will be able to have even a greater ministry impact as she leads the whole KSBJ programming team.”
