Jay Michaels was most recently with the True Oldies Channel. Prior to that, he was Morning Host for Cumulus’ WFAS/Westchester, NY for two decades, from 1993 through 2013. While at WFAS, Michaels was honored for his work with the Best of Westchester Award. He was also On Air/Production Director of WYNY/New York City for six years.

Lyons said, "We are thrilled to welcome Jay Michaels to the WEBE family and I know our listeners will enjoy his warmth and wit every morning as he wakes up WEBE-land!"
