Jerry Oster

News Director - oster@wnax.com

A native of Aberdeen, Jerry is a graduate of Lake Area Tech in Watertown and USD at Springfield. He joined the WNAX team in September of 1976 as the news editor. He continued on, taking on more jobs and challenges joining Norm Hilson in coverage of SDSU Jackrabbit football in 1979. From there Jerry became the News Director in 1990, when the legendary Bob Hill retired, where he remains to this day.

You can hear Jerry continuing his coverage of SDSU football as well as news on both WNAX and 1041 The Wolf. His talents don’t stop at the microphone, as he is the in-house technical support for all systems at WNAX. He keeps the station running and on-air in the worst of blizzards. Jerry really is a master of all trades.

Jerry lives in Yankton with his wife Cheryl and four boys: Ryan, Evan, Colin and Logan.
