Jay Severin, Conservative Talker, Dies


Known as a right-wing shock jock, Jay Severin has died. He worked at The Blaze Radio Network and at WTKK-FM, WXKS-AM in Boston. He was 69.

The Boston Globe reports, Glenn Beck of The Blaze, described Severin as “one of the rare talents that could not only see beyond the headline, but had the empathy to understand how it affected the listener. He was a good man, and I’m a better one for having known him.”

Funeral arrangements are pending.


  1. Too Bad about Jay’s passing…
    I remember Jay doing afternoon drive on the once great 710 WOR in NYC back in 1995 and 96…When Bob Grant was fired from WABC in 1996 he was then soon hired by WOR replacing Jay in about April 1996…
    I remember Jay being very positive and cavalier about being fired from is show saying at the end of his last day that he still had his gig as a campaign manager and “you have to go with the heavy hitters” referring to Bob Grant…
    Back then Jay was nothing like a “right-wing shock jock”…He was a nice intelligent host who was nice to callers….Bye Jay….
