Jeff Ferrell

News Director/Producer

Originally from the Pacific Northwest, and a graduate of the University of Washington, Jeff began his on-air broadcasting career 33 years ago in the Black Hills of South Dakota as a general assignment reporter.

Jeff has worked in several regions of the country, from the Great Plains to the Midwest… and from the northeast to the southwest, before coming to Shreveport back in 2000 with his wife and four kids, where they have lived ever since.

Throughout his more than three decades of news reporting, Jeff has covered everything from the crack cocaine epidemic of the early ‘90s outside Chicago, to prolonged droughts in Oklahoma and paralyzing blizzards in Pennsylvania… and from devastating gulf coast hurricanes to  severe flooding.            Jeff graduated with a master’s degree in history from Louisiana Tech University in Ruston in March, and had just entered into a doctoral program until Red River Radio came calling, with a great opportunity to serve as news director at the public radio network.
