Jay Sorensen has been assaulting the airwaves for four decades, in some really extraordinary places, as Disc Jockey, Talk Show Host, News Anchor, Beat Reporter, Commercial Production Director ... and occasionally even as Program Director and Operations Manager.
Currently, Jay can be heard on the much-heralded and world-famous WCBS-FM 101.1 in New York City. Previous stops have included Sirius Satellite Radio, the legendary 66 WNBC-AM in NYC, New Jersey 101.5 FM, KLIF-AM in Dallas, and various radio places in Philly (that’s Fuhluffia to the locals there--just over the river from Candem, New Jersey).
Recently, Jay has been a guest announcer for his long-time friend on the new Times Square, New York City-based TV show ALL NIGHT with JOEY REYNOLDS on WNBC-DTV 4.2. -- A literal WNBC reunion for “Jay the Jock” and Joey!
A three-time Clio Award nominee, Jay has also been recognized by the New Jersey Broadcasters Association for his expertise in commercial production.
Jay is known for his volunteer work. He served on the Board of Directors for his local March of Dimes chapter, and has spearheaded several fundraisers over the years for organizations like the Multiple Sclerosis Society, the Juvenile Diabetes Association, and the Salvation Army.
A Lakewood, New Jersey native and a self-proclaimed "Piney and Proud of It!," Jay and his wife Andrea now live in Toms River, New Jersey. They have two children, Bryan and Tracy -- and especially enjoy the company of their four grandchildren, Christopher, Marie, Nicholas, and Emily.
In addition to the aforementioned grandchildren, his favorite things are The Beatles, Mickey Mantle, King Kong (1933), and ShopRite Bakery brownies (in no particular order, except the grandchildren come first).
