Drew Jostad

Audio Engineer


As a Marketplace technical director in Los Angeles, Drew spends most of his workday in headphones, making everything sound clean and smooth. He also helps with sound design, technical training and workflow management. You can hear Drew every so often as voiceover needs arise on “Make Me Smart,” “Million Bazillion” and other Marketplace shows.

Drew had his first radio production experience at WRUW-FM in Cleveland, and he went on to study audio at the University of Colorado at Denver. A native Coloradoan, he still prefers fresh mountain air to a sea breeze.
