WINA’s Jay James honored as Future African American Leader in Radio
WINA morning host Jay James has been recognized as a Future African American Leader in Radio by Radio Ink.
“Very proud of Jay. I have seen him grow into an excellent broadcaster and a center piece of Charlottesville,” said Mike Chiumento, general manager at Charlottesville Radio Group.
The Future African American Leader in Radio list includes experienced pros and young talent who all have one thing in common: they have extreme passion for the business and dogged determination to be the best.
James, a University of Virginia alum, has been with Charlottesville Radio Group for more than 20 years.
He is the host of WINA’s “Morning News with Jay James,” and is the station’s sports director and associate producer of the Virginia Sports Radio Network.
James is also the host of the UVA-themed sports talk show “Best Seat in the House.”
“Jay James should be proud of all his great work here in our community, and here at the station. He’s always willing to foster the love of radio in future generations, so this is a fitting award, indeed,” said Les Sinclair, operations manager at Charlottesville Radio Group. “I’m honored to work with him every single day.”
