Jason Farr was born in December 1968 at Hamilton’s St. Joseph’s Hospital. He’s lived his whole life in and around downtown Hamilton.
His love affair with Ward 2 started as a small boy when every weekend, Grandma Ellen would take Jason and his brother Greg to Kresge’s, Robinsons, and a host of other great downtown shops. While a student at Delta High School (where he was not only a football and basketball captain, but also valedictorian) Jason was up at 5am every Saturday and Sunday, rain or shine to make his way to work at the Hamilton Thistle Club on Robinson Street.
After Delta, Jason studied broadcasting at Niagara College, then urban geography at McMaster. While at Mac, Jason started to DJ on weekends in his hometown. His connection to the Hamilton community flourished, with his first professional broadcast in Hamilton on CKOC in 1991.
With his friendly presence in the local media, Jason began to establish himself among Hamilton charity groups as an event MC who never shied away from volunteer hosting and took great pride in representing any organization that was thoughtful enough to ask.
Jason Farr has worked on radio in Hamilton at CKOC, CHAM, Y108 and as the morning man on CHML. He volunteered on many community driven TV programs at Cable 14, where he hosted For The Record. He was also the stadium announcer for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and a part-time host of Sportsline on CHCH.
Jason’s reputation as a reliable facilitator, visionary and community leader continues to grow. He has always been Dedicated to the Core.
