Doug Raflik – KFIZ News Director

About Doug: News Director Doug Raflik’s start in news gathering happened when he was about 12 years old, though he didn’t know it at the time. He was by a friend’s house that had a police scanner and a fire page went out for the local fire department. Intrigued by this device, Doug asked for a police scanner for Christmas and got his wish. Scanning became an instant full-time hobby.

A second passion of Doug’s was severe weather. He would take several trips out to the great plains to watch majestic supercell thunderstorms churn over the open prairies and he eventually bought a camera to capture the breathtaking views. When there were no storms to chase, Doug combined his new passion for photography and scanning and went to scenes he heard on the scanner to take photos.

Local newspapers showed interest in Doug’s photos and he would eventually get hired on as chief photojournalist at a local paper. Breaking news became not only a desire to capture in photos and video, but also a source of income. With the newspaper falling farther and farther away from local news, including breaking news,

Doug reached out to KFIZ for a job as their first photographer in their 100-year existence. Doug’s passion for capturing news visually was instantly evident and he was hired on. After just a few short months at the station, the position of News Director opened up and Doug decided it was the right time to expand his news gathering passion into the writing of the stories he covered and producing broadcasts on the radio. Doug can be seen at any variety of breaking news at all hours of the day and night as well as the events that make a small town, a small town. If you see Doug at an event, feel free to go up and say hi. Unless it’s at an active shooting situation. Then you may want to wait for another time.

About Pam: Getting up at 2 in the morning might shock some of her listeners, but for Pam Jahnke, it’s part of the business. Born in Northeastern Wisconsin, Pam Jahnke grew up in agriculture.

After college, Pam moved into her chosen field, doing farm broadcasting, radio, and television, from Green Bay to Eau Claire, WI – and she’s never looked back. Pam often says she feels like farm broadcasting and communicating on behalf of food producers is exactly what she was made for.

She’s received many honors, including the “Honorary Recognition” award from UW-Madison’s College of Agriculture, her honorary “American FFA Degree”, and citations from the Wisconsin State Senate.
