Jeffrey Callison

Jeffrey Callison, whose Scottish brogue has been a distinctive feature of Capital Public Radio’s "Insight" radio program for years, has been tapped for the press secretary of media relations position for the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Callison has hosted the daily public affairs program on the Sacramento NPR affiliate since 2004. He started at the station as a reporter in 1996 and became its news director in 2000. His one-hour radio show has spotlighted local politicians, pundits, musicians, artists and other newsmakers. The corrections job does not require Senate confirmation. Callison is not registered to vote, according to this Brown administration press release, which also announced 12 other gubernatorial appointments.
