Hello everyone! My name is Jarred Becker and it’s amazing to be part of the Townsquare Media team! I am originally from Chino, CA, but have been living in the Midwest for the last 7 years so I have grown accustomed to all the fun cold weather we get. When I’m not on-air or in the studio, I enjoy watching and playing hockey, spending time with my two crazy cats and going on adventures with my Fiancée. I look forward to being a part of your day and keeping you informed on all things happening in SE Minnesota!
