Jason’s journey with WGFX-FM began back in 2012 when he interned for the Midday 180 while attending Western Kentucky University. He spent a few years as a student at North Carolina State University in Raleigh in the late 1990s, but then worked in professional wrestling as an announcer, creative director, talent, and an editorial freelance writer for the next decade before returning to school in 2010. He graduated with a degree in broadcast communications in 2013 and was officially hired by The Zone in March of that year.

As a part of our Zone team, Jason served in many capacities, including board operator, traffic reporter, fill-in producer, and has either guest hosted, or lead hosted every day part on the station. He has been the host on SportsTrend and This Week in Women’s Sports and has hosted Squared Circle Radio alongside David Reed and Brandon Haghany every Sunday morning since January of 2014.

For much of the decade, he moved from announcing duties in pro wrestling to serving as play by play announcer for both the KHSAA and TSSAA in football and basketball, including calling multiple State Championship games. He also hosted Inside Hilltopper Sports Radio in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and was a staff writer for Sporting Times Magazine and online portal.

In 2014, he began writing for SB Nation, and in the summer of that year, he also began contributing to FOX Sports and Outkick the Coverage, focusing on pop culture. Two years later, as the lead culture writer for the site, he was named executive producer for FOX Sports Radio’s nationally syndicated morning show, Outkick the Coverage with Clay Travis. He was a regular voice on that show through June 2018 and remains the primary fill-in host and a guest on the program. He also has done work hosting on FOX Sports Radio’s weekend schedule.

In July of 2018, Jason was announced as the daily host of The Zone’s new 6 PM radio show, The Big 6. In addition, he serves as lead writer on 104.5TheZone.com as the editor in chief and scribe of The Big 6 Blog, bringing the sports, wrestling, pop culture, and opinion writing many have come to know him for from Outkick.com to The Zone.

Titans vs Patriots: Preseason Week 2 Primer

The Titans will wrap up a week spent with the defending Super Bowl champs tonight at Nissan Stadium at 6pm CT. It’s unclear how many starters we’ll see from both sides tonight, and for how long, but any time your team gets to use the New England Patriots as a measuring stick for an entire week, it’s a great opportunity. A few things stood out to me during the two joint practices this week, and a few questions remain from last week that you should be looking for tonight.

B6B: Hobbs & Shaw Review

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – July 31, 2019) Going into Hobbs & Shaw, I had expectations. As nonsensical as much of the Fast and the Furious franchise has been, it’s also been relentlessly and consistently fun.

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – July 16, 2019) It turns out Mike Wheeler might have been right to worry and show extreme concern for Eleven’s safety in the sensory deprived, mind bending world behind the blindfold, because now what wasn’t seen is on full display.
