Jay Lloyd — a voice long familiar to Newsradio listeners — provides recreation and leisure reports to Delaware Valley residents every Thursday on KYW.
Until his “retirement” in 2005, Jay was KYW’s Suburban Bureau chief since the bureau’s inception in 1972.
In 2012, Jay was inducted into the Broadcast Pioneers Hall of Fame (see related story).
Jay is an avid skier and sailor — the latter probably no surprise since much of his very early career in broadcasting took place in the Caribbean and the years before that in the US Coast Guard.
Now, KYW is delighted to be able to bring you Jay Lloyd’s “Getaway” reports, in which he reveals some of the special destinations he was discovered during his extensive travels.
Jay lives with his wife and daughter in Montgomery County.
