Kim Jeffries Ketola

Inducted 2013

A 1977 graduate of Brown Institute, Kim Jeffries ruled the airwaves for nearly two decades as KS95’s first full-time female disc jockey.  In 1997 she moved over to WCCO-TV as a feature reporter before becoming a host of mornings and middays on WCCO Radio from 1998 to 2003.  But it was her work at KTIS and the Faith Radio Network that changed her life.  In 2004 she became the host and Executive Producer of the KTIS-FM and online feature Life Redeemed™, presenting first-person narratives of spiritual healing.  She went on to host a daily show on KTIS-AM from 2005 to 2008.  A pioneer in the field, Kim was the chairperson of Governor Tim Pawlenty’s Council on Faith and Community Service Initiatives from 2006 to 2008.

From 2007 to 2010 she also traveled across America and Canada as a speaker for Ruth Graham’s conference ministry.

In 2012 Kim began using her married name, Ketola, published her first book, and became the Executive Producer and host of the national broadcast Cradle My Heart Radio, a live, interactive outreach ministry, which airs locally on Faith 900 KTIS-AM.
