Director of Operations & Weekend Host
Meet Spirit FM’s Director of Operations and Weekend Host, Jackie Howard!
Hi, I’m Jackie Howard! I was raised in Central Va, where I developed a love of music and started in radio when I was 15. After I found Jesus five years later, I was able to get a job with a small Christian AM station. God not only used that to help me grow spiritually, I ended up marrying a co-worker’s sister! It wasn’t very long before I and others saw the need for a large FM station playing Contemporary Christian Music 24/7. I’m so glad God allowed me to be a part of the team that birthed Spirit FM on 07/31/94. My wife Tina and I will have our 24th anniversary in 2015. We have three children – Daisy, Isaac and Joshua.
I was born October 17th in Tacoma, WA because my Dad was stationed at Fort Lewis. We came back to VA when I was still VERY young. I often say I’ve lived here “my entire conscious life.” My family is in Central VA, my wife is from Pennsylvania.
