BOYER NAMED STATION MANAGER AT KNEB

Nebraska Rural Radio Association General Manager Craig Larson announced on January 17 that Bill Boyer has been named Station Manager at KNEB.

For the past seven years, Boyer has been Operations Director at KNEB. In 2014, he became the morning show host, along with Nik Chizek, on 94.1 The Brand.  He also does a daily weather forecast on KNEB.tv.  Boyer succeeds veteran broadcaster Chuck Schwartz who has semi-retired and has moved into an advisory role with KNEB.

 “I’ve worked closely with Bill for several years,” Larson said.  “He’s energetic and creative and will do a great job for KNEB.  I also want to thank Chuck for his service. Chuck has been in radio for almost 50 years and has earned the opportunity to take a step back and slow down a bit.”

Boyer was born in Mullen, with his family later moving to Bridgeport before starting his radio career as a teenager at KCOW in Alliance.

As graduate of the University of Nebraska- Kearney with a degree in Journalism, Boyer spent several years in central Nebraska. He started working at KGFW and KRNY in Kearney in 1997, and in 2005, he was promoted to Operations Manager for NRG Media, overseeing the Kearney and Holdrege Markets.

In 2008, he moved back to the Panhandle to become City Administrator in Bridgeport. Boyer returned to broadcasting in 2011, becoming the Operations Manager at KNEB.  In addition to helping launch KNEB.tv in 2015, he was instrumental in putting KNEB’s newest station, 101.7 The Trail, on the air last July.

“I'm very excited to help lead the great group of professionals at KNEB,” Boyer said. “Being part of KNEB and the Nebraska Rural Radio Association is truly a blessing. I’m looking forward to working with the great management team we have in place across the company.”

Boyer and his wife Reagan have a son, Seth.
