Martin Jeff Krimski, known by the stage names Jefferson Kaye and Jeff Kaye (December 12, 1936 – November 16, 2012) was an American radio, television and film announcer. Among his credits were announcing gigs at WHIM and WRIB in Providence, Rhode Island; WBZ in Boston, Massachusetts; WKBW and WBEN in Buffalo, New York; WPVI in Philadelphia; and NFL Films.
Kaye began his radio career in Providence in the late 1950s, where Krimski became “Jeff Krimm,” then “JK the DJ” on WHIM (1110) and WRIB (1220-AM). By 1961, he had caught the attention of WBZ (AM-1030) station executives, who brought him on as part of the Westinghouse Broadcasting-owned station's transition from the middle-of-the-road "Live Five" to a more aggressive top-40 music programming format. 
As program director of WKBW, he produced the station's adaptation of The War of the Worlds. For his work on NFL Films, Kaye won several Sports Emmy Awards. He also narrated the Chicago Bulls' first championship documentary, "Learning To Fly", as well as a history of DePauw University football, "A Tradition of Excellence."
