Broadcast Pioneers Luncheon
Bala Golf Club, Philadelphia, Pa.
Wednesday, October 15, 2008
Broadcast Pioneers member Jay Lloyd is a voice long familiar to KYW Newsradio listeners. Currently, he provides recreation and leisure reports to Delaware Valley residents every Thursday on KYW.
Until his "retirement" in 2005, Jay was KYW's Suburban Bureau chief since the bureau's inception in 1972. When he was the suburban chief, he broadcast from his office and studio located inside the Montgomery County courthouse. Jay is known for uncovering stories that no one else could get.
Lloyd has been involved in most of the major news coverage at KYW Newsradio over the years, including the Three Mile Island nuclear accident, the Susan Reinert murder case and the trial of convicted murderer Craig Rabinowitz. Jay loves to be first with the news, and works hard at beating the competition to the story.
Jay is an avid skier and sailor. The latter probably no surprise since much of his very early career in broadcasting took place in the Caribbean and the years before that in the US Coast Guard.
Now, KYW is delighted to be able to bring you Jay Lloyd's "Getaway" reports, in which he reveals some of the special destinations he was discovered during his extensive travels. Jay lives with his wife and daughter in Montgomery County. On Friday evening, November 16, 2012, Jay Lloyd was inducted into the Broadcast Pioneers Hall of Fame.
