Jason Reeves (born May 1976 in Hastings, New Zealand) is a radio broadcaster who hosts the drivetime show on Classic Hits FM. He has also worked on The Edge and ZM and hosted "Headliners" on TVNZ. His former partner is Tanya Pouwhare who was the winner of TV Series "Treasure Island" in 2001. After 5 years together they split in 2007.

Reeves began his radio career in 1994 at the age of 18 after leaving Karamu High School and working on Hot 93FM in Hawkes Bay. He remained there until 1996 when he moved to another Hawkes Bay Station Xtreme 100. In 1997 he moved to Hamilton to work on then local station The Edge, originally on the drive time show, but moved to the breakfast show with Jay Jay Feeney in 1998. He worked at The Edge as it progressed from a local Hamilton station to a nationwide network station based in Auckland.

At the end of 2004, Reeves left The Edge, reportedly as a result of a prank carried out by his breakfast co-hosts Jay Jay Feeney and Dominic Harvey. Jay Jay and Dom started sending Jason text messages from a prepay cellphone pretending to be a fan who had somehow managed to obtain Jason's number. Over 100 texts were sent and management of The Edge were aware such a prank was going on. Jason left, filing a personal grievance against The Edge operators MediaWorks NZ. [http://www.nzherald.co.nz/search/story.cfm?storyid=3DF01842-39E4-11DA-8E1B-A5B353C55561] In February 2005, only three months after leaving The Edge, Reeves was given a job with opposition station ZM, originally co-hosting Stables Rump 30 countdown with Stables (another former Edge presenter) on Saturday afternoons and, later, his own Saturday morning breakfast show with co-host Andrew Mulligan. He also filled in for other ZM announcers, including Stables while he took leave to judge NZ Idol and the ZM Morning Crew, Polly and Grant.

Reeve's experience on radio led to a short television career in 2004 and 2005, co-hosting his own show on TV1 called Headliners as well as voice over work for other TV shows. At the end of 2005, his contract with TVNZ was terminated after Headliners was axed as part of a revamp of the TV1 News Service.

In February 2007 Reeves moved to Classic Hits and now hosts the drive time show. In 2007 Reeves made a return to television starring in a commercial for the [http://www.wewantyou.co.nz/ We Want You Motor Group] and in 2008 Jason has teamed up once again with Andrew Mulligan (who Jason worked with on ZM) as a co-host on New Zealand's Got Talent screening on Prime TV.
