A Bay Area native, Jeff is thrilled to be at KCBS, a station he remembers his grandfather listening to during so many of their earliest visits. (Grandpa, now 95, still tunes in every day!) Jeff traces his passion for news back to his high school journalism teacher, who instilled in him both a fascination with, and a great respect for, the field. (The two remain friends to this day.) Thinking that journalism would be a hobby and not a career, Jeff went off to U.C. Irvine to study civil engineering, and then to Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, to get his M.B.A. Along the way, he began working in radio and set off on a circuitous path that first led him to KCBS in 1993. After two years as a part-time anchor/reporter for the station, Jeff left for fulltime work at KFBK in Sacramento, where he spent the next eight years anchoring drive-time news programs. He returned to KCBS in 2004.
During his career, Jeff has also worked as a television news writer (for KTVU’s Mornings on Two program), a traffic reporter, and a Capitol correspondent in Sacramento.
When not behind a microphone, Jeff spends much of his time working on his own various writing projects. A longtime sailboarder and recreational sailor, Jeff’s next big goal is to attempt to kiteboard. He’s still working up the nerve to sign up for lessons!
Jeff and his wife have two daughters, who along with their golden retriever, keep them extremely busy… and very happy!
