Jake joined VPR in 2016 as a producer and announcer. He spends much of the day working with the programming team, producing shows and podcasts, and helping to organize membership drives. He also guides you through VPR's afternoon programs during the week and can be heard on Saturday mornings during Weekend Edition.
Most recently, Jake was a host and digital content manager at The Point (WNCS) in Montpelier. Before landing in Vermont in 2006, he hosted morning shows and programmed radio stations in Hartford, CT, Worcester, MA, Wilmington, DE and Scranton, PA.
Jake is also a voice-over artist, string bass player and dog lover with aspirations of becoming a man of leisure. He lives with his wife, two children and dog along the western slopes of The Greens (as the Eye On The Sky guys would say).
