Jason Salas - Interactive Media Manager/Primetime Anchor

Posted: Updated:
Jason Salas is a broadcaster, journalist and software developer at KUAM. Jason's prolific body of work spans mass media, being simultaneously involved with print, radio, television and the Internet. His duties include co-anchoring KUAM's Primetime flagship newscast with Sabrina Salas Matanane and writing and reporting for KUAM News.

He also developed the format for several sports-oriented programs on KUAM, hosting a weekly sportstalk radio program and producing, writing and co-hosting "JockTalk" a 30-minute TV show focusing on national and local sports. He additionally continues to single-handedly develop and maintain KUAM.com, Guam's most successful online brand. Jason frequently posts to his weblog, JasonSalas.com, and produces the podcast "Jason Salas' Digital Pontification".

Jason was born on April 24, 1974 and grew up in Dededo, Guam and Waterbury, Connecticut. He graduated from the University of Guam in 1996 with a degree in marketing and earned an MBA in Technology Management from the University of Phoenix in 2001. He was the first person on Guam to be awarded Microsoft's coveted Most Valuable Professional (MVP) designation, receiving it in 2003 and 2004. He has previously won the Society of Professional Journalists award for Best Online Story, and is also a four-time recipient of the prestigious Edward R. Murrow Award for "Best News Web Site" for KUAM.com from the Radio and Television News Directors Association, including the National Murrow Award in 2006. This marked the first time any Guam broadcaster won the national honors.

In 2008, Jason co-hosted the KUAM production "Survivors: In Their Own Words", which was named that year's outstanding regional documentary, winning the Edward R. Murrow Award.

In stark contrast to how he conducts himself on-air and online, he lives quietly and alone.
