KCVO Names New Station Manager

Northwestern Media has named Jenn Pooler the next station manager for its newest station, KCVO/Camdenton (Spirit FM). Jenn will move from Northwestern’s KNWS/Waterloo (Life 101.9) where she most recently served as program director.  

Pooler’s Christian radio experience includes KJIL/KJRL (105.7 KJIL) in Abilene, KS doing production and afternoons. In 2015 she joined Northwestern Media at KNWS as Morning host and Listener Engagement Director. Then in 2021 became Assistant Program Director then upped to PD later the same year. 

“Jenn is an outstanding leader and will guide our efforts in Camdenton,” said Jason Sharp, Northwestern’s senior vice president for media. “She’ll work to be bold with our mission, build a culture where her team can thrive and help grow our ministry efforts in our newest market.” 

“God has done some wonderful things with Spirit FM for the last 38 years,” said Jenn Pooler. “I’m excited to help lead this station and see more people led to Jesus through Spirit FM and Northwestern Media.” 

Jenn will replace Jim McDermott, who will be retiring as station manager and president of Lake Area Educational Broadcasting Foundation. Northwestern Media filed an asset purchase agreement to acquire the Spirit FM stations from Lake Area Educational Broadcasting Foundation, with an expected closing by July 3, 2023. 

Spirit FM will be a part of the Northwestern Media network of University of Northwestern – St. Paul.
