Prior to coming to New York, Jayde was the host of Hot Mornings with Jayde on Cox Media’s WPOI Hot 101.5 in Tampa, where she also hosted segments for WTVT Fox 13/Tampa Bay and WOFL/Fox 35. She was also co-host of Johnny & Jayde in the Morning in Orlando on WXXL/XL 106.7. While in Orlando, she wrote for Orlando Style magazine and was featured on the cover of Orlando Style, Orlando Magazine, and Think Healthy magazine. She was also voted a “Woman to Watch” by Orlando Women’s Newspaper. Jayde previously worked as a correspondent with Billy Bush on Access Hollywood, a fill-in co-host on LIVE With Regis & Kelly, and a co-host on the Bravo show Love Calling with Donny Duetsch.
“Jayde is a dynamic, fierce, and authentic storyteller – and as a parent, she’s relatable to women everywhere trying to manage and balance life’s demands,” said Suzanne Grimes, EVP Corporate Marketing, Cumulus Media and President, Westwood One. “Our goal with this new show is to empower and embolden women to feel good and be confident in who they are. Jayde is the perfect personality to deliver this important message.”
Donovan said, “I grew up feeling inspired by strong women; I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for them. I continue to admire women who step up, create, and force change. I feel very strongly about bringing to light the misconceptions of what it means to ‘have it all together.’ Women put too much pressure on themselves, and that’s what I am here for — to keep it real. My goal with this platform is to reach people from all walks of life, encourage them to be their best self, and remind them to have fun on this journey no matter what life throws at you. I can’t wait to get started.”
