KGBI/Omaha has hired WCIC/Peoria Operations Director/mornings Jeremy Tracey as their new Program Director and Morning Show host. Jeremy is the first official KGBI PD since Northwestern Media took over the station last year following the purchase from Salem.

Happs was previously WCIC Assistant Operations Director/Afternoon Co-host and joined KGBI shortly after The University of Northwestern/St. Paul acquired KGBI in August of 2018. Happs, states, “Jeremy’s experience is second only to his heart for both Jesus and the people that he reaches through his show and programming.”
Jeremy says, “So thankful for my time at WCIC and the team there. Looking forward to this new chapter of pouring into and serving the community of Omaha! I’m excited about what the staff of KGBI have already built and are working towards in the future!”
