Jason Ross


Interests: Playing guitar in my band, Closer Still, bicycling/unicycling on the bike path between Lake George and Glens Falls, cooking up a mean Italian cuisine, boating and waterskiing on Lake George, skiing at Gore and West Mountains, and listening to Hits 95.9 in the rain.

Favorite Concert: I’d say it’s a toss up between Third Eye Blind, Green Day, Eric Hutchinson, and The Punch Brothers.

Movies: The Shawshank Redemption, Pulp Fiction, Fight Club & I Love You, Man.

Television: American Idol, The Voice, Storage Wars, My Strange Obsession, Pawn Stars & American Pickers.

Favorite App: Alien Blue, a Reddit-reading client, The Korg iKaossilator (lets me make techno music), or Mustache-Mach, because mustaches.

Websites: Reddit, Facebook, Twitter.

Teams: Giants (woo!) and Mets (regrettably)!

Favorite Food: Any form of the “black & bleu” bacon cheeseburger. Don’t judge me!

Pets: My cat Nala. She makes sure I’m awake every morning a half hour before my alarm clock.

Nicknames: Jay, Jase, & Travis (don’t ask)

As much as I dislike waking up at 4 ‘o clock in the morning, I love coming to work and bringing the news, gossip, weather, and tunes to my listeners on The Hits Hot Breakfast. My favorite part of the show is when I get to hear from listeners about how their day is going, things that have happened to them, and when their husband refuses to lower the toilet seat. Everyday is just as unpredictable as the last and I wouldn’t want it any other way! Join me weekday mornings from 6-10am and we’ll get through those mornings together!
