Jerry Olenyn hosts new Christian radio program

Those who’ve missed Jerry Olenyn, the outgoing former Chico television reporter for Action News, can now hear him on the radio.

Olenyn (pictured) is now host of a half-hour Christian program called Live Local Talk With Jerry Olenyn that can be heard at 8:30 a.m. weekdays on KKXX 104.5 FM and 930 AM. Olenyn is husband of news anchor Kelli Saam, who is now with KRCR News Channel 7, in Redding. He’s also a freelance TV reporter.

According to a press release from KKXX, the show is designed to reach out to a broad audience, not just people of faith. “Christians are not one-dimensional,” Olenyn said. “We have a lot of interests and enjoy a spirited discussion.”
