Idaho Media Ministries Announces New General Manager

July 01, 2010 | Don Klinger

In a decision publicly announced on May 24, the Idaho Conference executive committee named Brian Yeager the new general manager of radio stations KTSY and KTFY. Fondly known as Chaplain Brian for the past seven years, Yeager assumed his new duties immediately.

"Brian has a heart for ministry," says Don Klinger, Media Ministries board chairman. "The board has an aggressive agenda for expanding the ministry and we believe Yeager can make it happen." One of his first challenges has been to prepare a new Treasure Valley station called The Oasis to go on the air at 88.7 FM.

Yeager is an ordained minister who comes to the radio ministry with varied experience. For five years, he was the director of the eXtreme Team, a national touring youth ministry presenting the gospel throughout the United States and Canada. For the past seven years, he has been the pastor/coach for The Experience, a church plant he founded in Meridian, Idaho, encouraging unchurched KTSY listeners to become part of a body of believers.

KTSY, with its contemporary Christian format, will celebrate 20 years of broadcasting in the Treasure Valley on Oct. 14. The station is fully community funded and raises more than $700,000 annually from its listening audience. Mike Agee, founding general manager, left in April to teach communication and rebuild the radio station at Southwestern Adventist University in Keene, Texas.

Yeager is married to Michelle and they are the proud parents of four daughters: Gabrielle, Victoria, Jocelyn and Addison.
