Eric Teel

Director of FM Network Programming

After a failed attempt at structured music instruction at Washington State University, Eric found himself standing in front of the renowned Edward R. Murrow College of Communication with two full years of radio experience already under his belt. The path was clear, and the broadcast journalism degree was obtained.

Over the next 20-plus years, Eric has drawn upon his extensive music knowledge to host programs in nearly every genre for commercial and public radio. He joined the JPR staff in 1996, hosting Siskiyou Music Hall from JPR’s Redding studios. In 2002, he moved to Ashland and took over as one of the hosts of Open Air. In addition to music, he’s put his journalism background to use reporting for NPR, managing JPR's award-winning newsroom, and producing feature-length public radio specials carried nationwide.

As FM Network Program Director, Eric oversees all aspects of JPR's broadcast day. He still hosts the occasional Open Air shift, and now handles JPR’s growing series of live in-studio music performances.

When not at work (which is nearly never) he can be seen in the crowd or on stage at music events around the region, or finishing solidly mid-pack in bicycle races in an effort to make his fitter friends feel better.
