Also at KSBJ promotions outreach manager Reyna Rojas takes over morning news for the departed Pam Kelly. Reyna told HisAir, “I was introduced to KSBJ when a family friend gave my siblings and I a ride to church. I was about 9. My father was in prison and my mom was overcoming a drug and alcohol addiction. The radio station gave me hope. Despite becoming a teen mother I surrendered my life to Jesus and believed with all my heart He had a plan for me to one day be a part of the radio station that reminded me of God’s love and forgiveness. I’ve been on staff at KSBJ for over 5 years in the promotions dept. and am thrilled to get the opportunity to make an even bigger impact as the Morning Show Producer.”
