Born and raised in Pittsburgh; Jonas, an obnoxious Steeler and Penguin fan, got his start in radio at Penn State in 1985. It's at that point things began to rapidly go downhill.

After programming WQWK and WQKK in State College/ Johnstown, PA, Jonas decided to embark on a journey westward. 1996 marked the "arrival" of Jonas Hunter in Tucson. KLPX was the first and thus far only stop on the Tucson radio tour.

Jonas started doing Mid-days in 1998 and became Program Director in August of 2000. KLPX saw great growth in rating and revenue during his term and saw the creation of a Tucson benchmark concert event known as KLPX-Fest.

Jonas started on the KLPX Morning Show with Andy Taylor in February 2005...not is it only a brand new challenge, but Jonas really has to work hard for a change AND get up at the crack of ass! With the addition of Chrissy in August of 2005, he now stands outnumbered, but still the loudest voice in the room!

Chrissy departed in June to help her husband's business and be a stay-at-home mom. The KLPX Morning Show with Jonas and Andy had their final broadcast on 96.1 KLPX on Thursday, November 29, 2007. Ironically, most of the features and promotions that Jonas developed remain in place at KLPX, except for KLPX-Fest which management decided was too much of an undertaking. It will be missed.

During the 2008 Spring Training season, Jonas spend his time as the PA Announcer for the Arizona Diamondbacks and Chicago White Sox and Music Console Operator for the Colorado Rockies. Baseball everyday? March was a great month!

Finally, in April of 2008, after carefully making the decision to get out of radio, Jonas was hired as the Special Events Director for the Greater Oro Valley Arts Council. It's just like radio, but without a broadcast and he has to dress nicer.

You can still hear Jonas at Spring Training games for the Diamondbacks (as long as they're in town) and now behind the microphone at
