About Uncle Jay


Uncle Jay thinks it’s really important for today’s news to be understood by today’s innocent, ignorant and immature minds.

Also children.

Uncle Jay is Jay Gilbert, a long-time Cincinnati radio personality, and winner of the 2000 “Personality of the Year” Marconi Award.  That’s kind of like the radio industry’s Oscars, but without the stupid dance segments.

He created “Uncle Jay Explains the News” in the mid-90′s for an early-morning TV news show, and even won an Emmy.  Today, he carries on Uncle Jay’s mission via the internet.  Somebody like Jon Stewart or Katie Couric will certainly call eventually; Uncle Jay can’t wait to become a famous obnoxious diva.

Tell your friends about Uncle Jay so you can all figure out what’s going on, because grownups … maybe you noticed … haven’t.
