89.5 KVNE says “So long” to our friend Jeff Johnson

It’s with mixed emotions that we announce our Mid Day Host/ Web Guy / IT Expert Jeff Johnson will be leaving 89.5 KVNE to pursue a new career.

Here’s what Encouragement FM President/CEO Troy Kriechbaum had to say:


“Midday host Jeff Johnson has felt God’s call to work as the Senior Communications Specialist at UT Health Northeast.  While we are excited for Jeff, we are sad to see him go.  During his tenure he helped elevate our level of excellence both on-the-air and on the web. His stories, humor and personality have been a blessing and encouragement to thousands each day and he will be greatly missed.  His last day on-the-air is December 13th.  Please pray for Jeff as he begins this new adventure.  Congratulations Jeff!”


Jeff has made such an impact on this ministry. His passion for the Lord, his family, and seeing souls won to Jesus has been contagious, and he brought a high level of excellence in all he did in service to the Lord at KVNE and KGLY.

I will miss his generous spirit, his touching stories about his daughter Caroline, his clever wit,  (gift of sarcasm!) and his goofy laugh around the office! I’m glad to know that he and his family will remain Tyler residents!

Go with God, Jeff! Love you, brother!
