Jon A. Anderson Journalism Scholarship
Jon Alan Anderson dedicated decades of his life to bettering the lives of the people of Guam through the development and improvement of the media landscape on our island.
Jon came to Guam in the 1970s and would become the Vice President and General Manager of Pacific Telestations Inc, also known as KUAM TV and Radio. Jon would then move on to become a founding partner of Guam’s first talk radio station: K-57 Radio Inc., which would become the Sorensen Media Group. As the beloved host of the Breakfast Show on K57 for nearly two decades, Jon brought a balanced view and voice to the voiceless—entertaining and informing everyone from CEOs, Politicians, Business Owners and Teachers, to every Guamanian.
Jon was known for his kindness, honesty, and generosity. He was a wonderful employer, colleague and was compassionate to the struggles of the everyday man. Jon is survived by his wife Mahie, their children and grandchildren. His contributions, dedication and legacy will live on through those he helped, informed, mentored and loved.
His family has decided to remember Jon by creating a scholarship in his name to support future journalists. Family, friends, and colleagues who would like to contribute to this scholarship in his memory may do so here.
The UOG Endowment Foundation offers our sincere condolences, and thanks the Anderson family for their generosity.
