Zack Taylor (born August 30, 1987) is a former radio disc jockey working for Y100 FM in Miami [1] and then he hosted the Midday show on Mix 100 FM in Yellowknife [2]. He later turned into a celebrity blogger after creating Canadian celebrity gossip site ZACKTAYLOR.CA [3] back in August 2007. He now does gossip reports for KISS 92.5 and Z103.5 FM in Toronto.

Blogging[edit]

The website gained attention in mid-November 2007, when photos of Toronto Maple Leaf, Jiří Tlustý, one of which was of him nude, appeared on Isthishappening.com, causing a media frenzy. This scandal was published as the full-front page photo of the November 14, 2007 Toronto Sun.[1][2]

After all the attention, the website was bought in January 2008 by Hot or Not Inc. and turned into HotorNotGossip.com [4] making Zack Taylor their main blogger.

In December 2008, Zack re-branded the website under the title, ZackTaylor.ca - giving himself more freedom according to reports.[3][4]
