JAY CAPRON

I was born and raised in Lockport, Illinois and attended Providence Catholic High School in New Lenox. I then moved to the Windy City and enrolled at the University of Illinois at Chicago and attained a B.A. in Communications in 2003. I interned at WGN-TV with Dan Roan and Rich King before taking a position as Program Director of KNIA/KRLS in Knoxville, Iowa. I spent two years in Iowa and married my college sweetheart Devon (Campbell) in August of 2006.

I joined the WCSJ/WJDK news team as News Director in August of 2007.

I am an avid Chicago White Sox and Oakland Raiders fan. I originally wanted to become a zoologist but ran into a roadblock in college called Advanced Chemistry. It was then that I turned my efforts to radio.

My uncle Joe Starkey was the play-by-play voice of the San Francisco 49ers until 2009 and you may know him from his famous call during a Cal/Stanford football game, when the band ran out on the field at the end of the game: "THE BAND IS ON THE FIELD!" He is still the play by play voice of the Cal Bears football team.

I have another uncle with college football ties --- Dan Capron is a Big Ten football referee.

My favorite pastimes are walking with my wife and son (Jack), and my dog, a Weimaraner named Slater.

I enjoy, fishing, camping, and softball. My favorite food is Chicago-style deep-dish pizza.
