Jason Jackson (born May 12, 1972) is an American sportscaster and writer. He worked for ESPN from 1995 until 2002, best known as the host of NBA 2Night. Jackson was fired from ESPN in May 2002 for violating company policy. After his firing, Jackson admitted that he had made "comments that had sexual overtones on occasion in select company," but denied that he had sexually harassed colleagues. ESPN did not disclose the reason for Jackson's firing.
In 2003, he hosted his own sports talk radio show in Hartford, CT, called The Jax Show, and in September 2007, he returned to hosting The Jax Show weekday afternoons on WQAM in Miami. He currently works as a broadcaster for the Miami Heat. From January through October 2012, The Jax Show reappeared in the afternoons from 1-3 PM on the Miami Heat's flagship station WAXY.
Kelly Dwyer of SI.com wrote in his 2006 "NBA Announcers Report Card" that Jason Jackson might be the best side-line reporter in the business.
