Jack Morgan has spent 35 years in electronic media, doing both television and radio.

In his mid-20s, Jack was known as Robbin Banks at two San Angelo FM stations, but the bulk of his career has been spent at PBS stations in Austin (KLRU), Orlando (WMFE), Vermont Public Television, and San Antonio's KLRN.

At KLRN he spent five years as director of production, where he was responsible for three hour-long programs with the San Antonio Symphony. Jack was also responsible for KLRN's ARTS program during its startup, and co-produced Texas Week With Rick Casey.
