Meet the KC101 Team

Kevin Thomas – Station Owner

I created KC101 in 1995 when I acquired a license to broadcast and built studios in the dining room of my home. From there my passion took over, it was nearly a year before I took my first day off work. In the beginning years, 100 hour work weeks were typical but the hard work and passion paid off! KC101 has been number one in the ratings year after year and I’m still doing what I love.

You can hear me on the Sunday morning show or forecasting the local weather.

Jess Sandstrom – General Manager

My career with KC101 started in 2010, when I interviewed for an Office Administration position. I got the job, of course! I very quickly fell in love with the station and everything KC101 stands for. Since then, I’ve grown with the station, becoming the General Manager, a Marketing Consultant and On-Air Personality. KC101 also allows for me to work with MANY nonprofit organizations in our area including HAVEN of Tioga County, Clays for Kids, and more.

You can hear me afternoons from 3 to 7 and on Sundays for the Pump N Pantry Hometown Countdown!

Jason Bump – Production Manager

In 2018, I started as an On-Air Personality at KC101, which quickly turned into a career in 2019 when I became the Production Manager! I enjoy everything about KC101 and our presence in the community!

Join Kayla and I on the Morning Show.

Kayla

Working at KC101 is perfect for me, I love country music and talking! I grew up right here in Tioga County, in Liberty! After college I came back to the area because I missed the small-town feel! After being an on-air personality for a little over a year, I joined the KC101 team full time as a Station Manager in 2023.

Join Jason and I for the Morning Show Monday thru Friday, PLUS hear me throughout the week from 7 to midnight.

Mary R. Reed – Marketing Consultant

I am a 33+ year veteran of media — between radio and television — and I jumped back into the business of radio in September of 2022!  Let my experience help you to reach a new audience of listeners, potential customers, who may have NEVER heard of you!  Tell me any business that isn’t interested in finding some new customers??

Ronda

I love being a Real Estate Agent, however a second passion of mine is music! I’m known to occasionally sing throughout the County at different venues and you can catch me on KC101 Monday through Saturday, from 10 until 3!

Renee Kelly

Music has always been my passion. That passion took me to PCT where I majored in Mass Media Communications and spent most of my time at the college radio station. Although I still have passion for music, I have found another passion in the fishing industry. When I am not on the radio you can find me fishing or helping others to fish as a Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission Fishing Skills Instructor. One more important fact, I was born and raised in Tioga County!
