Johnston joined the Chargers in March, 1979 while attending San Diego State University. He earned a degree in journalism in 1981 and was named public relations assistant that year. He served as assistant director of public relations (1984-87) and director of community relations (1988-89). He also oversaw the team’s community relations and public affairs from 1990-00.
