A lifelong sports fanatic whose grandfather sang with Dennis Morgan and the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra on a weekly show in the early years of 620WTMJ, Jay was well-groomed for a career with the Journal Broadcast Group.
While a student at Marquette, Jay joined WTMJ as a producer for the Green Bay Packers Radio Network and soon began his tenure as a news and sports anchor. In addition, Jay honed his radio skills doing play-by-play and hosting a coach's talk show with the Rockford Lightning of the Continental Basketball Association, where his broadcasts were heard nationally.
He is also an award-winning sports anchor and reporter for 620WTMJ and a studio anchor/reporter for the Green Bay Packers Radio Network.
Jay has won awards for:
• Associated Press Wisconsin Best Radio Sports Story: "Monfre for Three, while Mom's There for Me" (2008)
• Wisconsin Broadcasters Association Award for Best Special Interest Programming: "Ice Bowl Revisited" (2005)
• A.I.R. Award for Best Sports Interview: Jerry Kramer for "Ice Bowl Revisited" (2005)
Jay, who is married with a son, enjoys time with his family, playing keyboards in jam sessions with friends, cooking Italian food and trying to get rid of the calories, and being involved in various community service projects around Milwaukee and Wisconsin. For those wondering, Jay is not related to former Wisconsin Badgers quarterback Jim Sorgi, although he loved hearing Matt Lepay's play-by-play calls of him!
