As someone who loved watching FOX 2 for so long, it's been awesome to join this great family as the weekend anchor & feature reporter for Fox 2 News Weekend. I love my time with my TV family of Deena, Roop, Taryn and Jessica. I joined Fox 2 in 2002.
Television was a little new to me at first. I've been a radio DJ since I was 14 years old. I worked in radio in Atlantic City, Grand Rapids and Philadelphia before making Detroit my home back in 1999. I hosted Jay & Rachael in the Morning on 93-1 DRQ for 6 years and hosted the Jay & Bill show on 97.1 after that. When I'm not working weekends at FOX 2, I am a the host of Jay Towers in the Morning on FRESH 100.3 http://jaytowersinthemorning.com/main.html. I love waking up my radio family everyday from 5:30 to 10:00 a.m. My day doesn't end at 10 a.m. though, I also work in the programming department at Fresh 100.3 and I host afternoons in Philadelphia everyday on Mix 106.1 from 1 p.m. - 6 p.m.
When I'm not working I enjoy going to the movies, going out to eat and spending time with my 9-year-old daughter. I often take advantage of the nightlife in Metro Detroit but still always make it to work on time.
When I host the morning show on Fresh 100 it's always exciting to talk on the phone with listeners. When I do my TV work on FOX 2, I can get out every weekend and meet so many people in person. Interacting with people is still the best part of any job, and I'm thrilled to be doing it here on FOX 2 News Weekend.
Would love for you to join me on Facebook and Twitter!
