Jubal is a marquee talent, with a proven track record of driving ratings and revenue both locally and nationally.

He will be joined by his wife, Alex Fresh, and additional hosts to be named at a later date.

In addition, Jubal has received an array of awards and accolades celebrating his on-air career, including the National Radio Hall of Fame “One to Watch” Award and the prestigious Marconi Award for “Large Market Personality of the Year.”
“I’m going back to KISS because when I left 10-years ago, I didn’t get the chance to clean out my desk, and I just want my favorite pen back,” said Jubal. “Oh, and also the amazing opportunity to work for, and with, the best in the business at iHeartMedia. I’m constantly trying to evolve and grow and find new innovative ways to entertain my audiences and iHeart is always on the cutting edge. This new chapter is going to be bananas.
