Jay Glazer is considered to be the top NFL Insider in the National Football League. He 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, and other various reports 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 has 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 the 2014-15 NFL campaign even started, Jay reported that 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh would not return for the following season, no matter how well the Niners would perform. Harbaugh subsequently left San Francisco for the University of Michigan at the end of the season. Later that year, right 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 with the Indianapolis Colts. A couple of years ago, Jay scored the first sit-down interview with Richie Incognito after the Miami Dolphin’s locker room bullying scandal. He was also the first to report the end of the NFL Lockout, at 3:52 A.M. Jay was on stop of every Brett Favre retirement, un-retirement, and signing. 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. The hardest working man in the industry, Jay was named Sports Illustrated’s Media Person of the Year in 2007.
In addition to Jay’s football work for FOX, he also serves as a UFC host and analyst for the network. As a former fighter himself, combined with his hosting and reporting background, Jay brings a unique personality and perspective to the UFC broadcasts.
In the past, Jay has hosted other various shows for FOX including “FOX Football Daily” and “Fantasy Football Uncensored”, among others. Jay has also worked as a host/reporter/analyst for NFL Network.
On the entertainment side, Jay has starred in multiple TV shows including HBO’s Ballers and The League on FX. In 2015, 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.
When the cameras are off, Jay can be found at his gym in West Hollywood, Unbreakable Performance Center. 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. Clientele include Demi Lovato, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Odell Beckham Jr., Chuck Liddell, Michael Strahan, and P.Diddy, just to name a few. In the spring, Jay runs NFL training camps for players that want to be in top physical and psychological shape before their team camps open up. 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.
In addition to Unbreakable Performance Center, Jay started a new foundation in 2015 called 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. Every Thursday, Unbreakable Performance Center hosts workouts for the members of MVP. It has become a great tradition and a special day that everyone involved looks forward to, including, and sometimes most especially, Unbreakable Performance Center clientele that are not members of MVP.
