Jay Towers

Post by iloveblackpeople » Mon Jan 28, 2019 8:14 am

How does he anchor Fox 2 News and do his radio show simultaneously? Does he just track the radio show ahead of time or does he put on a headset during commercial breaks and pre-taped pieces and yack for a couple of minutes with the radio crew until his next live shot? I'm not in radio so I am curious.

They take a cut-out of Jay’s Image and place on The Fox 2 Set and there’s a speaker that’s next to the microphone, Meanwhile Jay’s in The WNIC restroom on his cellphone reading the News stories of the day for Fox 2, it’s just like being at Fox 2, It’s just amazing what we can do today in the broadcast biz with all this great technology. I just love it.

They record the morning show on WNIC the afternoon before.
It is not at all live, not even partially.

I haven't listened to NIC's morning show in a long time but if they actually do record it the afternoon prior and most radio morning shows do nothing but talk about the previous night's reality shows on TV or the morning weather it would seem that show would not be very topical.

OK, It’s time for me to chime in on Jay Towers, Is the man Talented? The answer Ladies and Gentlemen is Yes, Does he do a good job as a Radio Personality?, The answer is Yes, Is he a good Television Personality?The answer is Yes, But Here’s where the problem comes in, Now this is just my opinion, When I listen to The WNIC to me it seems like it’s condensed, canned or just seems like it’s lacking something, This by the way is not Jay’s fault, it could be a technical thing, I just don’t know what it is, One thing for sure to me it’s a turn off factor, So I just put on a CD in the car and enjoy my Oldies, Now on the TV thing Jay is no doubt good on Fox 2, I think he’s perfect on Channel 2, To me he’s the best that Channel 2 has in the morning, Personally I think Jay needs to get rid of the radio gig and stay with Television, That’s my take on Mr. Towers and I mean that with Respect, What do you all think?

His voice irritates me.
I used to be okay with him when he was on DRQ, but now.. he gets on my nerves.

And Oldies 84, if the show was actually live it might actually sound good. That's my opinion on it

That is part of the problem, And it doesn’t do Jay any justice, I meet him some time ago, And He’s a Class act and just an all around guy, kind and charitable.

Completely agree with you on all that about him.
He's awesome.

I just get annoyed by his voice, lol.

Let me clarify his "radio voice"
He needs to use his normal voice during the show.
He sounds just fine normally, but the voice he puts on during the show is just... weird

I think that’s Just goes with us radio guys, I do that around the house and drive Kim crazy talking like a Top 40 DJ, Like the other day we’re eating dinner and I asked her to pass the potatoes in a Top 40 deep voice, Then she said knock the f’ing shit off this is the dinner table not CKLW asshole.

After she passed the bowl, you should have replied "And the potatoes just Keep on Coming!" :razz

He’s not talented.

He must know very bad things management has done. Otherwise he wouldn’t be employed.

I don’t think he’s bad. Not necessarily talented, either, just very middle of the road and for employers he’s non offensive and very vanilla, which I believe keeps him employed.
Sometimes his voice sounds like Kermit the frog. To me, he’s the embodiment of what makes for boring radio.
