My family moved to Oregon in the summer of 1971 after my father had finished his Air Force duty. I was born at Luke Air Force Base in Glendale, Arizona. Then he left his father’s paving business in Southern California to start his own business in what he always called “The Promised Land” of Oregon.
We loved this place from the moment we got here! We started in Albany in the Mid Willamette Valley then moved to Redmond and finally to Salem. I went to high school in Redmond and finished in Salem then went on to college in Newberg at what was then, George Fox College majoring in History. I finished with my Bachelor of Science in History at what was then called Southern Oregon State College in Ashland.
My broadcast career started with a college station in 1979. Then continued at stations in Medford, Ashland, Dallas, Coos Bay, Roseburg, Hilo Hawaii, Lahaina Hawaii, Bend, Prineville and most recently in Salem-Keizer. Being a deejay was my life’s dream, I love music and I love talking so I did that for 30 years but found a real calling in Conservative Talk Radio.
The Bill Post Radio Show debuted in April of 2009 on a local radio station after the first Tea Party rally at the Oregon State Capitol I felt there was a need for an Oregon focused talk show as most stations only carried national talkers. Our show focused completely on Oregon stories, the Legislature, candidates, officials and news. I have interviewed just about every member of the Republican caucus in both the House and Senate over the years, governor candidates, US Senate and Congressional, and talked to a lot of wonderful people who work in policy and think tanks for Conservative politics. It was through all of this that I finally concluded that based on that experience I felt that there is so much more that should be done by our legislature to get our state back on track. I’m now a State Representative because I love Oregon and want to work to make a positive difference in your life.
My family is precious to me! My wife Colleen is a long time Special Education teacher with incredible patience and a huge heart. She loves her “kids” and works very hard and very long hours to help them succeed. She is my treasure and the great love of my life and my rock!
My son is Kai and he is a young man who is out in the workforce as well as attending school desiring to be successful and I love him dearly.
My father is Ron Post who I am so proud of as founder and President Emeritus of Northwest Medical Teams International. He has helped countless thousands all over the world, feeding, clothing and meeting their needs. He is a great man.
My mother is Jean Post and she is an inspiration to me at all times. She loves me unconditionally and has always been there whenever I needed her.
I have two younger sisters, Sheri and Dawn whom both have wonderful children. I am truly blessed.
My church family is very important to me. I have attended Salem Evangelical Church in Salem for almost 20 years. I sing in the choir as a tenor, teach adult Sunday School and am on the Board of Trustees. My church family is an extended family that supports and prays for me daily. They are incredible.
I hope this helps you know me just a little bit better. Thank you so much for visiting my site!
