Name: Jeff Leighton

Title: General Manager

Location: Detroit Lakes

Background: I have a BA from the University of St. Thomas with a concentration in Marketing and Finance. I’m proud to be a second-generation broadcaster following in my Dad’s footsteps. It’s an honor that our radio stations are part of so many great communities.

No two days at Leighton Broadcasting are ever the same. I always felt that if I even loved radio half as much as my Dad did, I’d be okay. After 20 years in this industry, I can honestly say I love what I do. If you love what you do, you’ll never spend a day of your life working.

Random facts about yourself:

  • Spending time with my family at the cabin on Lake Melissa is my favorite pastime 
  • I’m a pretty serious Bridge (card game) player!
