You’re not going to believe this, but Jay Gilbert goes so far back in Cincinnati radio that when he first started, Jim Scott was still on the air!
The “glory days” of Cincinnati ROCK radio owe a lot to Jay Gilbert, who not only commanded afternoon drive for over 20 years (including simultaneous #1 ratings), but who also created many of that station’s most legendary song parodies, fake commercials and on-air pranks. His Large Market Personality Marconi Award trophy from 2001 still comes in handy for opening stubborn pistachios.
Even when radio’s commercials are on, Jay Gilbert has made an impact. He apologizes if your head still sometimes plays back his jingles for Montgomery Cyclery, Tim Timberman, Grippo’s Potato Chips, Reach Magazine, Quikstop Oil Lube, and countless other jingles. His awards in advertising are numerous.
On the internet, his “Uncle Jay Explains The News” comedy videos have been “helping small minds understand big news” since 2007. Uncle Jay was originally created in the 1990s on WCPO-TV newscasts, and won an Emmy.
Most recently, Jay has joined Cincinnati Magazine as the latest incarnation of “Doctor Know,” a monthly column that answers oddball questions about the city.
