McKibbin, a longtime staple on the Jackson airwaves on K105.3 and its sister stations, along with his wife Katina, were new radio group owners in 2020 having acquired WIBM-AM, WKHM-AM/FM in Jackson and WCSR-AM/FM in Hillsdale. They understood the importance of small-market, community-based radio and how valuable the airwaves were to listeners and clients in those respective markets. Katina McKibbin continues to serve as owner and president of McKibbin Media Group today carrying on Jamie’s legacy.


In 2021, the MAB Foundation honored Jamie McKibbin with the Community Broadcasting Champion Award.  Watch the tribute here:
