Jay Towers Career
Jay began his broadcasting journey at the age of 14 years old at WJRZ in Toms Rivers, New Jersey. When he turned 18, he landed his first full-time radio show in Atlantic City at WAYV and then at Boss 97. He left the Jersey Shore shortly after his 20th birthday and became one of the youngest Program Directors in America at WMAX in Grand Rapids. One year later he helped launch 93.1 WDRQ here in Detroit. In the summer of 1997, he was called back to the east coast to serve as Music Director and afternoon host at Q102 in Philadelphia but felt a such great attachment to the city of Detroit, that he returned to 93.1 DRQ in 1999 to host “Jay Towers and the Morning Revolution” until 2005.
Jay spent the next four years at 97-1 The Ticket hosting the “Jay & Bill” show with Bill McAllister before making 100.3 WNIC his final radio stop in 2010. He continues to host “Jay Towers in the Morning” on 100.3 WNIC every morning with Allyson and Chelsea. Oh, how could he forget? A funny thing happened back in early 2004. He was in the lobby of the Fisher Building on a Saturday Morning to promote WDRQ’s ‘Lion King Musical’ Contest. It was the first day tickets went on sale and he was waiting to be interviewed by a Fox 2 reporter about our contest, but she never showed up. The photographer gave him an earpiece.
Jay Towers FOX 2
He talked back to Deena Centofanti in the studio about all of the excitement in the lobby while interviewing the people in line. The producer asked him to do it a few more times that morning. The following Monday he received a call from the News Director asking him if he would be willing to fill in for the next 2 weeks until they hired a new feature reporter and he has been at Fox 2 ever since. From Feature Reporter to Weekend Anchor to Morning Anchor, he has been having the time of his life. The question he is asked most often is how he does both Morning TV and Radio Together every day. Thanks to such a good partnership between iHeart Radio and Fox 2.
He is lucky enough to have his WNIC radio studio with Allyson and Chelsea just a few steps away from the Fox 2 News Studio. When you don’t see him on Fox 2 News Morning for a few minutes, chances are he is in the studio next door talking on the radio. If you didn’t know, the 1978 Film ‘Superman The Movie’ was his earliest childhood memory and his favorite. Additionally, he is a complete Superman nerd and is not afraid to admit it. His super-obsession even got the attention of Director Zack Snyder and he put him in ‘Batman v Superman’ back in 2016 playing a Metropolis TV Reporter. In 2018, he hosted and produced a TV special on the 40th Anniversary of ‘Superman the Movie’ which received an Emmy Nomination. Furthermore, Jay started ‘The Caped Wonder Superman Podcast’ with Superman Historian Jim Bowers.
Jay Towers Radio Host
Radio and TV have blessed him with the opportunity to have a very big platform every day in Detroit. He is honored to be a part of countless charity events throughout the year. But wanted to really use his voice to do something personally for him. In 2014, he created the “Jay’s Juniors” program on WNIC. The goal was to create a magical escape for children in Metro Detroit who suffer from chronic or terminal illnesses. By taking the entire family on an all-expenses paid trip to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Since they started Jay’s Juniors, he has been fortunate enough to take over 100 families on trips at Christmas time. Although some of their Juniors have sadly passed away. Our families hold on to some of the most special memories ever from our time together.
In 2017, after surgery to fix an aortic aneurysm, his father went into Septic Shock due to an undiagnosed bladder infection. He came as close to death as you can get and is without a doubt a living miracle. Jay’s dad is back to killing bugs with their family business. He is always his first phone call of the day at 3 a.m. when he leaves for work. Sepsis kills 270,000 Americans each year, at any age, at any time.
