Jaz McKay is a conservative American talk radio host born in 1958 in Oklahoma City, OK. McKay has worked in broadcasting for over 40 years.

Jaz has worked literally all over the world including stints in cities like New Orleans, Miami, Detroit and Cleveland and the island of Guam.[1]

McKay has always courted controversy and in 2008 in the lead up to the presidential election on November 4th, McKay told his listeners that due to an expected high turn out Republicans were being urged to vote on the Tuesday the 4th and Democrats on Wednesday the 5th. McKay claimed it was a joke, however local elections official's were not amused and demanded McKay correct himself and apologize. McKay refused to apologize and is quoted as saying, "If you're so dumb as to think I was serious you are too stupid to be voting in the first place." [1]

Also in 2008 McKay gained national attention when MSNBC reported on some fake Obama bumper stickers on his website that said things like "Obama '08 - Hope, Change, Dead Honkys" and "Somewhere In Kenya A Village Is Missing An Idiot". He said it was a joke about the birth certificate controversy and the racial component of the campaign and he "didn't mean to offend anyone". [1]

Several social media posts have also landed the host in hot water including one bragging to own a 30 round magazine for an AR-15 rifle (illegal in California) which brought out protesters who demanded he be investigated by the police who said they found nothing.

Then in 2018 after being replaced with syndicated talk radio host Sean Hannity on KNZR,[2] McKay made disparaging comments on Facebook about the number of Spanish language radio stations in Bakersfield suggesting that job availability for English speaking announcers are few and far between. [3]

In late 2018 Jaz McKay was hired to host middays from 10am till noon time slot at 96.1 FM and 1180 AM KERN in Bakersfield, CA.[4]

In early 2016 Jaz McKay's wife Laura was diagnosed with sever liver disease and continues to fight for her life with her husband by her side.[5]

Jaz McKay has worked as a voice actor and appeared in over 40 animated films and TV productions as well as countless radio and television commercials. [6] He’s also performed standup comedy and has fronted four rock and blues bands all over the country.[1]
