Starting June 2, Ottawa listeners will be waking up to JUMP!

Mornings with Tony Stark & Jesse Reynolds, as the hit radio station has crowned the winner of its

Greatest Gig On Earth co-host talent search.

The search began in early March, with over 160 hopefuls looking to land the coveted spot alongside

current morning show host Tony Stark. The list was whittled down to 30, 10, five, and three,

respectively, before Reynolds was announced as the winner this morning.

After submitting an online video, surviving a series of grueling social media tasks, co-hosting three

morning shows and performing a live lip-sync battle, Reynolds, an Ottawa-based comedian and actor,

“To say that we’re excited to introduce Jesse to JUMP! listeners across the region would be the

understatement of the century,” said Stark. “If you’ve followed Jesse’s journey throughout this process,

you know that he is a fresh, uber-entertaining voice unlike any other on local radio.”

Dubbed “Ottawa’s Acid Tongue” by Capital Xtra Magazine, Reynolds is definitely not afraid to share his

two cents and, in his words, “tell it like it is.”

“I’m extremely pumped to join the team at Ottawa’s coolest new radio station,” said Reynolds. “I not

only encourage, but I challenge everyone to listen to JUMP! Mornings with Tony Stark & Jesse

Reynolds. We’ll bring more caffeine to your morning than 12 cups of coffee.”

JUMP! 106.9’s Greatest Gig On Earth has taken the city – and social media – by storm, generating

over 20 million impressions and consistently trending region-wide.

“This has been a wild ride, and we couldn’t be more excited,” said Mark Dickie, General Manager,

Corus Radio Ottawa. “On the air, on the street, and on social media, each participant has made their

mark, and we cannot wait to introduce JUMP! Mornings with Tony Stark & Jesse Reynolds.”

JUMP! Mornings with Tony Stark & Jesse Reynolds will hit the air Tuesday, June 2, and will be heard

every weekday from 5:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.

    You do a better job on reporting on Ottawa radio than any other media source. You are the only site that actually posts ratings results. Strikes me as odd that The Citizen never ever reports on radio whereas most other cities papers do? Hundreds of thousands of people listen everyday. Anyway good work. When are the spring ratings coming out it seems JUMP has taken the city by storm and Majic is worried as a lot of the listeners are young women!
