Jason Sauls is the midday announcer at Oregon Public Broadcasting.
Jason came to OPB in 1997, where he's served as an evening announcer and also the local host of Weekend Edition before moving into his current position.
Prior to OPB, Jason worked as a news producer and music host at NPR affiliate Jefferson Public Radio in Ashland and commercial radio station KTMT in Medford.
Originally from California, he graduated from Southern Oregon University in 1995 with a degree in communications and broadcasting.
Jason is also a producer and editor for a variety of programs including the City Club of Portland and Back Fence PDX. Outside of radio, his interests include minor to major obsessions with music, hockey, youth soccer, swimming, creative writing, discovering great eateries and coffee shops, and spending time with his two sons.
Portland Mayor Charlie Hales has said protests aren't a productive way to create change, and he stood by those remarks Monday on OPB's Morning Edition.
