Behind the Scenes with Olympics Announcer Brad Jay

Ever wonder what it’s like behind the scenes in Pyeongchang? My radio buddy, Brad Jay, shares great stories from this year’s games as well as Olympics past. A veteran announcer, this is his 5th Olympics, first starting as a music director for the Salt Lake City Winter games working his way up to his current gig as the English Announcer for Snowboarding and Skiing in Korea. Brad will return to Korea after these games to work the 2018 Paralympics. His enthusiasm is contagious, especially when you listen to him announce Shaun White’s Gold Medal run.

An avid surfer and snowboarder himself, you can also hear Brad on ESPN’s X-Games. He still holds down his airshift at KTYD Rock Radio in Santa Barbara where we met many, many moons ago…listen in on our chat.
