Jeff Walker BIO
Jumpin' Jeff Walker's voice is likely the most recognizable voice in NEPA! As a kid, Jeff wouldn't shut up and nothing has changed. His dad told him he better get a job that required him to talk a lot. So he did. After growing up in the Boston area and developing a harsh New England accent, Jeff moved to NEPA 33 years ago and has been rocking KRZ since the day it hit the air. Besides his love for being on the radio, Jeff is obsessed with cigars, the Red Sox, politics, gold investments, and fitness. Everything Jeff touches seems to either not work or break right in his hands. He'll go to his grave swearing that it's not his fault. Despite his abrasive, outspoken on air personality, he's one of the sweetest most generous guys you'll ever meet. He's always on the go, rarely home, and pretty much NEPA's most eligible bachelor.He has a weakness for lean, fit blondes. He insists he’ll settle down one day but seriously, no one believes him. Jeff has developed a loyal following of listeners who have kept his show the #1 most listened to radio show in N.E.P.A for over three decades! He swears he’ll never retire!

LIFE MOTTO/THEORY: There’s no traffic jam on the extra mile
Amanda is the sweet side of The Jeff Walker Show. Most of the time. She's been putting up with Jeff for the past 5 years and is the voice of strong, independent women. Amanda grew up in Rhode Island and loves the RED SOX. She spent her wild college years on Long Island and started her radio career there. Amanda is a self proclaimed expert facebook cyber stalker and sleeps with her iPhone. Jeff referred to her as "The Maneater" for years because of the speed and number of guys she went through, but after dating all of the wrong guys, she found a good one we affectionately refer to as “Boyfriend.” Amanda lives in the Poconos with Boyfriend and their cat, Asti. Amanda and Jeff agree on virtually NOTHING, but love working together and it's a battle of wits on the airwaves.

RECURRING NIGHTMARE: This man with a long black coat and red eyes walks slowly behind me as I run from him down the street where I grew up. I run, he continues to walk. Once I stop to catch my breath, I can’t start running again, I have to work up from a jog to a run very slowly. Minnie Mouse confronts me on the street corner and man with red eyes in getting closer. I always wake up right as I’m opening the door to my childhood home and he’s about to grab me. I still have it at least twice a year to this day.
