Jay Wells

Jay Wells is playing your favorites if you’re headed home late, going into work early—or, just can’t sleep. As a history buff and an avid follower of current events (and fill-in for Pam Dixon on news), he loves to look back at fun facts from the past and to let you know what’s going on, today, in the lives of your favorite KIOA artists and groups.

Jay is a central Iowa native (he won’t shut up about his hometown of Stuart…we’re pretty sure his stories are adapted plots from The Andy Griffith Show) and a graduate of the University of Iowa. On the weekends, he can usually be found watching his son and daughter play in youth sports leagues—or cheering on his beloved Hawkeyes.
