The press release below made the announcement. Congratulations Eric!

ROCKLIN, Calif., - William Jessup University announced today that Eric Hogue, a longtime Sacramento area talk show host and radio commentator, will join the university as its Vice President of Advancement. Hogue will begin his new role effective June 1.
 
Hogue has been a supporter of the university, the Greater Sacramento region’s only private residential university, since it relocated from San Jose in 2004.
 
“We look forward to Eric joining our executive administration team,” said Dr. John Jackson, William Jessup University’s president. “He will be instrumental as he continues to build our marketing and communications programs as well as foster existing and new relationships in the community that are vital to the continued growth of our institution.”
 
Hogue, who has worked for Salem Communications radio stations in the Sacramento region since 2000, was KTKZ-AM’s first Program Director and morning talk host.
 
Hogue has hosted successful talk shows on Salem’s News/Talk 1380 KTKZ and Christian/Talk 710 KFIA.
 
He has been a frequent guest host for Salem Radio Network’s national commentators, including Bill Bennett, Michael Medved, Dennis Prager, Mike Gallagher and Hugh Hewitt. He is also a guest opinion columnist in the Sacramento Bee.
 
“Those that have listened to me over the past 11 years know that, as a marketplace Christian, I am committed to excellence in life, civic leadership and quality, higher education – for that end, there is none better than William Jessup University,” Hogue explained. “I am honored and excited as I begin this new and enriching chapter in my life.”
 
Hogue will oversee the University’s Advancement program; administering and managing all development and fundraising, alumni affairs, and donor, media, church and community relations.
 
While he will be leaving his morning show on KTKZ, Hogue will continue to host his popular one-hour daily program, “The Capitol Hour,” which airs weekdays at noon.
 
“I am motivated by achievement….and relevant, creative growth; I also love building for the future. To stay on the air with 1380 KTKZ while joining WJU is a once in a life time opportunity,” said Hogue.
