News Director J.P. Skelly joined KORN News Radio in January 1986 as the morning personality/farm news director and became News Director in January 1998.
Broadcasting has been J.P.’s passion since he was a young child toting a vacuum cleaner hose around the house as his “microphone”. He grew up in Copiague, New York on Long Island’s south shore living in the shadow of the greatest radio market in the world: New York City. “I had the privilege of listening to all the great stations, WABC, WNBC, WNEW, WCBS 880, WINS, and WCBS-FM,” said Skelly. “It was my dream to work in radio.”
J.P. jokes that he IS the KORN News Department covering all levels of government, to severe weather, crime and courts, to education, and 4-H to anything else newsworthy. “I’ve covered several Presidential visits and interviewed 4-H’ers while they were washing their calves. I walked through the rubble of Spencer after a deadly tornado roared through, and happily watched as high school seniors proudly walked across the stage at the Corn Palace clutching their diplomas”.
J.P. has earned dozens of awards and recognitions from the South Dakota Associated Press Broadcasters, Northwest Broadcast News Association, Associated Press Managing Editors, South Dakota Education Association, two prestigious regional Edward R. Murrow Awards from the Radio Television Digital News Association plus the Tom Brokaw Award from the University of South Dakota and South Dakota Broadcasters Association.
Professionally, J.P. is president-elect of the Midwest Broadcast Journalist’s Association, a member of the Society of Professional Journalists, Radio Television Digital News Association, Iowa Broadcast News Association, and past member of the South Dakota Broadcaster’s Association board of directors.
