Jay Marvin

Jay Marvin is a liberal, populist radio talk show host with a heavy handed political style learned from talk show hosts like the late Joe Pyne and Bob Grant. Marvin was employed in the professional wrestling business and brought that style of entertainment to politics where a "grain of salt" approach should be applied to his commentary. He is heard locally on KKZN in Denver-Denver, Colorado from 6am-10am MST. He is often anecdotal of his cocaine and LSD use and disdain for education as a youth but is apologetic to young people who might be listening. He is a published poet and writer, and an artist and he has been married to his wife, Mary, for over 28 years.

He began his radio career in 1973 as a country music DJ at KWMC in Del Rio, Texas. After that he worked all over the country on stations like WWOD Lynchburg, Virginia, K102 FM El Paso, Texas, WJEZ and WJJD Chicago, Illinois, and KKAT Salt Lake City, Utah, and Top 40 station KIXZ in Amarillo, Texas. He switched to talk radio in the late 80's starting at WTKN St. Petersburg, Florida and then moved to WFLA in Tampa. From there, he moved to WTMJ Milwaukee, Wisconsin, WLS Chicago (twice), KHOW in Denver, Colorado and is currently heard on KKZN in Denver. He has also guest hosted nationally for Ed Schultz, Jerry Springer, and Alan Colmes.

Marvin has interviewed many famous guests on his show, including Howard Dean, John Kerry, Jimmy Carter, and Mike Gravel, as well as other guests and local Colorado politicians including Mark Udall, Bill Ritter, Ed Perlmutter, and Diana DeGette.

As a strong supporter of progressive politicians, candidates and causes, he often attends events, such as town hall meetings between representatives and their constituents and fund raisers for local politicians.

Marvin has bipolar disorder and has openly spoken about his condition. He has devoted much air time to the discussion of mental health issues.

Political views

Jay Marvin is known for his liberal and libertarian views. He has supported organized labor, has been in favor of health care reform, opposed to censorship and opposed to all forms of racism and sexism. Marvin is a Jewish-American and a strong proponent of the separation of church and state.

Though self described as a liberal, Marvin has been a strong supporter of second amendment rights, a supporter of limited use of the death penalty and has been vocal in his support of law enforcement. Sometimes, after expressing conservative views, Marvin would say, tongue-in-cheek, that he was "still a card-carrying communist." Statements such as these harken back to his Professional Wrestling style. After the attack on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, he was supportive of military action to go after Bin Laden in Afghanistan. When talk first began about going after Saddam, Jay believed the Bush administration when they claimed that Saddam was a threat to the United States. Before the actual invasion, he began to believe that the administration was lying to the country. He was under heavy pressure by the management of WLS not to voice his thoughts. He has regretted his decision to “go along to get along” ever since. He has been critical of Congress for continuing to fund the occupation of Iraq.
