Jon worked previously in fundraising for WBUR for five years, managing the volunteer community, vehicle donation program, on-air pledge gift acquisition and fulfillment among other things; while earning his M.B.A. from Boston University’s School of Management in the evenings. He earned honors with concentrations in the fields of marketing and entrepreneurship.
He jumped ship for a brief stint at Boston’s Museum of Science. He returned as WBUR’s syndication manager and is currently working to grow carriage of WBUR’s national programs, On Point, Here & Now, and Only A Game. In his budding career as on-air voice talent, Jon has served as voice-over translator for several non-English speaking adolescents on Only A Game, played a successful April Fool’s Day prank on Robin Young, and appeared as a guest on On Point, Here & Now and WBUR’s Morning Edition as events were unfolding behind his home in Watertown in the wake of the Boston marathon tragedy. He is a proud native of Hartford, CT. and remains a die-hard Whalers fan to this day.
