HisAir is very sad to report Jim Epperlein has passed away. Jim was 67.
Most recently Jim served as Spotify’s ReZurrection Radio President & CEO. Previously he was Prazor’s VP of Music Programming,
Jim had more than four decades of experience in all facets of radio broadcasting including on-air, programming and management. He was the original PD/MD of XM 32 The Message at XM Satellite Radio, Jim took the channel from inception in 2001 to becoming the most listened to Contemporary Christian music station in America in 2008. Jim’s gift of music programming instincts helped him skillfully resonate with the music tastes of the Christian music audience.
ReZurrection Radio Program Director Ron Diaz told HisAir, “Though we are deeply saddened at the passing of our founder and President Jim Epperlein, we rejoice that he is free of pain. He fought courageously and he knew he was in God’s hands in life or death. We will continue with the work he started here at ReZurrection Radio and let the music he loved so much be a lasting monument to a man who loved Jesus and people with his whole heart.”
