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.”
