Jakle has been involved with radio since he was 14 and came to WRMN-AM 1410 in Elgin as a 24-year-old broadcaster in 1966. He served as president of Fox Valley Broadcasting, a multi-state conglomerate of three radio stations including Elgin's WRMN, until he recently reached agreement to sell the stations to Pollack Broadcasting. He is perhaps best-known in radio circles for creating and licensing the concept of the Radio Shopping Show, which first aired in 1982.
