Jason grew up in Northern New Jersey about 25 minutes from New York City, but has family ties to the area.

Jason comes from Albany, N.Y., where he was a part of launching a daily 30-minute local sports show, Upstate Sports Edge. Jason filled many roles in his two years in New York, including hosting the Edge, anchoring on the weekends and was the face of the station’s New York Yankees pregame show.

Some of his most memorable moments in Upstate New York came at Saratoga Race Course, where he covered some of the top race horses in the world and Triple Crown winner American Pharoah’s first career loss in the 2015 Travers Stakes.

Prior to his time in Albany, Jason won a small market Emmy while working as a sports director in Abilene, Texas, and spent three years as a sports utility player in New York City at News 12 The Bronx/Brooklyn and News 12 New Jersey. With News 12, he was lucky enough to cover Super Bowl XLVIII, two Yankees postseason runs and the Nets' move to Brooklyn.

Jason graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications at Arizona State University. While there, he was an award winning sports reporter for Cronkite Newswatch. His internships included 3TV and 12 News in Phoenix, CBS News New York, and Arizona State media relations. Jason also joined Alpha Epsilon Pi, where he held numerous positions on the fraternity’s executive board.

When he’s not out covering our local teams, you can find Jason in the gym, coaching lacrosse or cheering on some of his favorite sports teams. Along with his Sun Devils, Jason is a huge fan of the New York Yankees, Baltimore Ravens and New York Rangers.
