It's the end of an era -- as TOWNSQUARE MEDIA/ROCHESTER, MN OM BRENT ACKERMAN hangs up the headphones after 32 years.
ACKERMAN tells ALL ACCESS, "I am leaving the radio business. My last day is this FRIDAY (2/12). I have accepted the job of Exec. Dir. of ROCHESTERFEST, our city's annual 10-day SUMMER celebration. I am excited and ready for my new challenge. I have enjoyed my radio career immensely, and I look back with fond memories and no regrets. I started here as a part-timer in 1980 and had a full-time job waiting for me here after graduating from college in 1984. It's been an incredible ride working my way up from night jock to MD to PD to OM of six stations. I've loved every minute of it."
