KHPE Names New PD

Extra Mile Media announces the appointment of Tami Rumfelt as the new KHPE/Albany, OR (Hope 107.9 FM) Program Director. She has been serving in the radio industry for over twenty years including time spent as a freelance fundraising host and on-air talent. Tami has been heard on multiple radio outlets and formats including Country, Adult Contemporary, and Christian Adult Contemporary. In May this year it was announced that longtime morning show with married couple Paul & Debbie Hernandez would wrap up their show this summer, and Paul will move to a fulltime Sales position with the station.

“I couldn’t be more excited about joining the team at Hope 107.9 FM. With both a 50+ year legacy of serving the community, and a team of people passionate about creating new ways to deliver the HOPE of Jesus to the Willamette Valley, it’s an incredible moment to be a part of this ministry. I’m honored to have been entrusted with this role,” Rumfelt said.

As the Program Director for Hope 107.9 FM, Tami will guide on-air and promotion team members in creating quality content and engagement designed to further reach the communities of Eugene, Salem and Corvallis with the hope found in Jesus.

“I’m excited to have someone of Tami’s quality and experience join our team here in Oregon. She has the level of passion and love for growth we require at Extra Mile Media. I believe she will be a key part of what God has planned for Hope 107.9 in the coming days,” said General Manager, Scott Michaels.

Tami Rumfelt will relocate to the Willamette Valley of Oregon as soon as possible and has already started her work with Extra Mile Media.

Extra Mile Media owns and operates two Christian-formatted radio brands; Hope 107.9 FM (KHPE) and AM 790 KWIL. Both stations operate as commercial stations and receive direct support from listeners, as well as advertisers. Extra Mile Media has been serving the over two million residents of the Eugene-Corvallis-Salem area since 1958.
