Deb and Bob Sasser
Jesy is a 2014 graduate of Republic County High School and a 2016 graduate of Cloud County
Community College where he graduated with an associates in Agronomy (that worked out).
He first started working for KR92 in the fall of 2015 as a color analyst on the sports broadcasts when KREP FM ran a help wanted ad of their own, and 2 days before the first game of the season, no one else had wanted to replace the legendary duo of Eric Allgood and Barry Porter. For some dumb reason, Jesy wanted to help out his former teammates and friends, a decision that would ultimately influence his entire life. He continued to assist KR92 while he was an online student through Fort Hays State, stumbling through Republic County's first State Volleyball appearance in 40 years, helping begin the first ever broadcasts of Republic County Wrestling with Cole Callaway and Brady Lowell, and covering Republic County Softball, Golf, and Track and Pike Valley Track full time in the spring of 2017.
He returned to school at FHSU in the fall of 2017 where he became the primary (most often times only) play-by-play student-broadcaster for the Tiger Media Network, where he gained invaluable experience, while the Tiger football team recorded their first ever undefeated regular season and the women’s basketball team went on a deep postseason run under legendary Tiger coach (and Belleville alum) Tony Hobson. Rather than stay in college for another 3 years after being on his 3rd major, he decided to take the Sports Director position at KR92 and began full time, where he has sine taken over the Sales and Music Director positions.
During his time with KR92 he’s seen the best volleyball team in Belleville/Republic County history in 2016, the best Republic County football team since 1995 during the 2016 season, a State Basketball team in '17, the Buffaloes first winning season since '99 in 2020, and one "Greatest Wrestler in School History" after another, along with the first team placing by the Buffalo Wrestling Team in 2020, right before CoVid changed the world. He's had the honor to follow one of the most talented senior classes to go through Pike Valley with the class of 2018. And most recently, taking on athletic coverage of the Clifton Clyde Eagles in the fall of 2018, which has since yielded 1 league title in Football, along with numerous postseason runs and thrillers, 2 State Volleyball Appearances and a 4th place finish, 1 league title in basketball, and 3 State Appearances since, between the Girl's and Guy's squads.
He’s always waiting to get to call the next groups of "bests."
When he’s not following the Buffaloes, Panthers, or Eagles across the State of Kansas, he can most likely be found at one of his many friend's weddings, at a Kansas State or Fort Hays tailgate, playing with his ever growing list of nieces and nephews, or at one of his favorite Red Dirt artist’s concerts in Hays, Manhattan or some random venue in the Midwest.
Don't let anyone fool you, this was all just an elaborate plot to be able to have a good excuse to party with the likes of DJ Bridwell, The Box Turtles, Koe Wetzel, Tanner Usrey, Shane Smith and the Saints, Kolby Cooper and Pecos Hurley, William Clark Green, Gio and the Hired Guns, and many others.
He also interviews quite a few of these artists here on KR92, and other talent that appears locally, as he's always been a big advocate of supporting live and local music, so you should be sure to do the same!

Wrestling Play by Play
Brady began wrestling at the age of 12 with the Con Kids Wrestling Club. During Middle School, Brady integrated that into the Republic County Wrestling Program, where he was a 3x tate placer, the program's first ever 4x state qualifier, and set the then program record for career wins at 126 victories.
Brady was a walk-on at Cloud County Community College in 2018, and competed for the T-Birds at 125 lbs.
Brady was integral to starting up coverage of the Republic County Buffaloes in 2017, and has been the voice of the Buffaloes Wrestling Squad ever since, which has expanded to include the Cloud County T-Birds, and Concordia Panthers.
Wrestling Play by Play
I first got my start in 2018 when the owner of the Belleville Telescope (Fred Arnold) approached me about publishing photos for the paper. Fred wanted to make a bigger push at local sports and knew I was a dad of a freshman wrestler at the time. It started with me just giving him the photos that I took every weekend at meets, then it blossomed into taking photos at other events when he couldn’t. The following year Fred asked if I would be willing to write a few sports previews for the fall sports (football, volleyball, and cross country). I was hesitant at first but thought I would give it a try. I ended up writing a preview for every sport that year for the paper.
In 2020 I was asked to take over the writing for the sports page and add any ideas to the page that I could think of. To this date I have written over 360 articles for the papers sports page.
In radio I got my start in the 2020-2021 sports season. Covid had hit and fans were limited from attending games or events that season. Jesy Strnad of KR92 knew my passion for wrestling as my son Kaleb was a senior that season. He approached me with an opportunity to not miss a match of Kaleb’s that year and I could't pass it up. He asked me to pair up with local legend Brady Lowell to call every single tournament and dual that season to allow fans the chance to hear the matches that they weren't allowed to attend. I took his offer that season as a one year gig but I enjoyed it, and my partners, so much that I have been doing it for the last four wrestling seasons.
