Sad to hear of the passing of Ed Bremer who was the driving force behind KSER Radio. Here’s just a bit about him from KSER General Manager Tom Clendening.

On December 22, 2020, Ed Bremer died peacefully at home in Everett with his loving wife Lucia by his side.

If you’re a long-time KSER listener, I probably don’t have to tell you much about Ed Bremer.

Ed was hired by the Jack Straw Foundation in October of 1990, several months before KSER went on the air.

He was hired to be the brand new station’s Public Affairs Director. But he became so much more than that. He was instrumental in developing and producing programming in our early years when the KSER studios were in high-point plaza, a strip mall on highway 99 in Lynnwood.

Later, after the KSER Foundation was formed to take over the station operations from the Jack Straw Foundation, Ed worked tirelessly to oversee the move to downtown Everett and our development as a community owned broadcast facility.

For years, there was only one employee at KSER: Ed Bremer. I’m not sure the station would have survived without his tireless work, enthusiasm and incredible dedication to our community.
