Live… from the legendary KMOX-AM, comes your new overnight lead-in to morning drive! Overnight America with Jon Grayson is the fresh, upbeat, talk-driven program that electrifies the pre-dawn airwaves with smart conversation.
No little green men and no best-of’s or repeats, just fresh talk about the things your listeners care about from pop culture to politics. Topical, Approachable, and Informative, it’s a great alternative to everything alternative. Begin the day with what’s next, not what’s yesterday.
Host Jon Grayson is a young gun with major-league radio chops. Every weeknight, Jon adeptly covers all the issues of the day, connects one-on-one with callers, and engages effortlessly with celebrities and guests alike.
Jon Grayson began his career in talk radio while still in college. In just three years he had already hosted sports, politics, and general interest talk shows and served as the executive producer and on-air co-host of a top-rated weekly comedy broadcast on WFLA-AM in Tampa, FL. Jon honed his style through his early 20’s and landed the evening talk show host position at WWTN-FM in Nashville, TN at age 27. The show went quickly to #1 and Jon enjoyed three years at the top of Nashville radio.
In 2000 Jon moved to heritage KMOX-AM in St. Louis, MO where he hosted the overnight program for five years. During that time Jon also served as Science Editor, hosted the “KMOX Evening Special” and, following the terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, hosted a new program documenting the lead-up to the war in Iraq.
In 2006 Jon was invited by the U.S. Department of Defense to tour the war zone in Iraq. For ten days Jon interviewed soldiers, civilians, Iraqi police, and politicians. He heard gun and mortar fire and saw the aftermath of roadside bombs, and even dipped his feet in what used to be Saddam Hussein’s pool. Jon remains grateful for the opportunity and is forever indebted to the military and civilian security teams who kept him safe and allowed him to bring the story home.
