Jason Galvin is a 28-year-old multimedia journalist from Southern California. His start in journalism came just three months after graduating high school, when he was hired by KHTS 1220-AM in Santa Clarita, California to work on high school football broadcasts. Two years later, Galvin was promoted to Sport Director, a position he held until mid-2011. In between, Galvin also started announcing NASCAR races at the now-defunct Irwindale Speedway. During his time at Irwindale, Galvin was named the director of the announce team, supervising the team of announcers and audio technicians who helped put on each nights show.
Through his association with Irwindale, Galvin got his first two big breaks in journalism: a job as a features writer for automobile aftermarket manufacturer K&N Filters, and a spot on the SIRIUS NASCAR Radio broadcast crew for the 2011 Toyota All-Star Showdown. During this time, Galvin was also producing and anchoring weekly news and sportscasts for his community college, College of the Canyons, and their Cougar News program.
In August of 2011, Galvin moved to Phoenix to pursue his bachelors degree at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. After the move, Galvin was hired by Speed51 as a commentator on NASCAR K&N Pro Series races for NASCAR Home Tracks Radio. Galvin also began working at Phoenix International Raceway as an announcer in 2012. Currently, Galvin is the weekend sports anchor and a news reporter at KGET TV17 in Bakersfield, California. A member of the Dean’s list, Galvin graduated with honors in December of 2013.
