Eric Teel

Director of FM Network Programming | Music Director | Host/Producer: JPR Live Sessions

Over 30-plus years in radio, Eric has drawn upon his extensive music knowledge to host programs in nearly every genre for commercial and public radio. He joined the JPR staff in 1996, hosting Siskiyou Music Hall from JPR’s Redding studios. In 2002, he moved to Ashland and took over as one of the hosts of Open Air. In addition to music, he’s put his journalism background to use reporting for NPR, managing JPR's award-winning newsroom, and producing feature-length public radio specials carried nationwide.

As FM Network Program Director and Music Director, Eric oversees many aspects of JPR's broadcast day. He still hosts the occasional Open Air or classical music shift, and is the driving force behind JPR Live Sessions - our popular series of live in-studio music performances and interviews.

After a failed attempt at structured music instruction at Washington State University, Eric earned his degree in broadcast journalism from WSU's renowned Edward R. Murrow College of Communication.

Eric is a member of the Recording Academy, which each year presents the popular Grammy awards.
