Aaron Abeytia anchors afternoon newscasts on News/Talk 580 & 105.9 KMJ, and hosts KMJ’s Conversation Continues at 3:00 every Saturday afternoon. His primary mission when informing the audience of news and events, is to maintain an objective point of view, and to deliver concise reports, which regard a broad variety of information. Amongst the activities in which a vast portion of his passion reside: speech, writing, literature, music, and technology.
Aside from his marriage to broadcasting, Aaron greatly enjoys his meanderings with musical instruments. Although he firmly believes that audio equipment powered by vacuum tubes is essential for quality tonal reproduction, he dedicates endless measurements of energy to utilizing twenty-first century, digital musical instrument sampling technology. The organ is his instrument of choice; pipe organs and Hammond organs alike, he is well consumed in grasping their intricate qualities. Guitars and amplifiers also hold a unique place in his electronic toy house.
In addition to broadcasting, Aaron is a voice over artist, specializing in commercials, trailers, promos, narration, and imaging. His fascination with microphones and pro-audio gear has taken him on a journey, which will likely never end.
