“The Ace” Jason Murray

By: Jarod McKee

Jason Murray’s favorite sports analyst and the person who he shares the same beliefs as is Stephan A. Smith, a sports analyst for “ESPN First Take.”

“Stephan A. Smith, in my opinion, is the best commentator and analyst there is. He speaks nothing but facts,” said Murray.

Keyon Hodges, a football player at Waldorf University that listens to “The Ace” said “I really do enjoy listening to ‘The Ace’ because DJ Jay gives out live score updates of Thursday Night Football and he always [promotes] upcoming sporting events.”

Jason Murray came to Waldorf University on a football scholarship and is majoring in Communications. Jason is a Junior from Miami, Florida. When asked why he chose to major in communications, he said, “I am an aspiring sports analysis and I believe being a communications major can give me the fundamentals of being on the air.”

Every Tuesday night at 9 p.m. and Thursday night at 10 p.m., Jason aka “DJ Jay” (his radio DJ name) has a radio show called “The Ace.” The show mostly consists of sports talk and occasionally has some entertainment games. “The Ace” plays three types of music during the show: R&B, hip-hop, and pop.

“There are not a lot of people that listen to my show, which is alright, mostly my family and some friends are the ones that listen,” said Murray.

 “The Ace” comes in conjunction with seven other radio shows apart of Professor Mark Newcom’s Radio Production course.

Jason Murray graduates in the spring of 2020.
