Jay Glazer is currently serving as the NFL Insider for FOX Sports’ award-winning NFL pregame show, FOX NFL Sunday, where he breaks in with exclusives, late-breaking updates and injury news right up until the start of Sunday’s games and all the way through FOX’s Sunday coverage.
Jay has established a reputation for breaking major stories in the NFL all year round. He prides himself on his hard work and accurate reporting, two traits that have helped bolster him to the next level of NFL reporting and have made Jay a “go-to” source for news and information. Most recently, he uncovered the mystery of Tom Brady’s missing Super Bowl jersey, which was picked up by sports and non-sports outlets across the country. Before Super Bowl XLIX, Jay broke the news that the NFL had obtained video of a New England Patriots’ locker room attendant taking the game-ready footballs into an alternate room to be deflated before the AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts. Jay scored the first sit-down interview with Richie Incognito after the Miami Dolphins’ locker room bullying scandal. His biggest scoop was probably the New England Patriots’ SpyGate scandal. He is currently the only person still with the SpyGate videos in his possession, and has refused to give them up despite being threatened with jail time. Jay was named Sports Illustrated’s Media Person of the Year in 2007.
Jay also currently serves as a Host for Bellator’s signature MMA fights on the Paramount Network. Prior to joining Bellator, Jay served as a UFC host and analyst. As a former fighter himself, combined with his hosting and reporting background, Jay brought a unique personality and perspective to the UFC broadcasts.
Jay is also a regular contributor to The Athletic where he interviews the top coaches and players in the NFL and answers questions from the fans. After the 2018 season, Jay boldly predicted Odell Beckham, Jr. would be traded, and he was.
On the entertainment side, Jay has starred in multiple TV shows including HBO’s Ballers and The League on FX. In 2015, he hosted the season finale of Wicked Tuna for National Geographic. Jay is a natural in front of the camera, allowing his fun, outgoing, and unique personality to really shine through on the biggest of stages.
Jay also started the first MMA-training program for professional athletes with over 1,000 athletes having utilized his training program. Jay and his team have trained All-Pros Von Miller, Aaron Rodgers, Odell Beckham, Bobby Wagner, Andrew Whitworth, Jadaveon Clowney, Lane Johnson, Cam Jordan and the entire New Orleans Saints team.
When the cameras are off, Jay can be found at his gym, Unbreakable Performance Center, in West Hollywood, California. In 2014, Jay opened the gym with former Chicago Bears’ all-pro linebacker, Brian Urlacher, and U.S. Women’s Volleyball Captain, Lindsey Berg. The gym has become the home to many elite athletes, actors, musicians, and business people. Yahoo Health named UPC the “Most Elite Gym in America” because of its top of the line trainers, equipment, clientele, and philosophies. Jay prides himself on making a difference in his clients’ lives and helping them to live happier, healthier and more successful lives.
With all of Jay’s accomplishments, Jay is most proud of the charitable organization he launched in 2015, MVP (Merging Vets & Players), which works to match up former combat veterans and former professional athletes in order to help each other through the transition into their new lives away from the playing field and away from the battlefield. MVP has locations in several cities and regularly hosts workouts and counseling sessions for the members of MVP.
Jay currently resides in Los Angeles, CA.
