Patrick "Pat" Joseph Gray is an American talk radio host. Pat Gray is co-host of the nationally syndicated radio show, The Glenn Beck Program, and is co-host of The Pat & Stu Show on TheBlaze Radio Network. Gray was formerly the host of the morning show on the Houston radio station KSEV.
Pat Gray was born in Helena, Montana. He got started in radio during his junior year in high school at his hometown Top-40 station. After graduating from high school he moved to new jobs in Great Falls, and Billings. At the age of 20, he worked at KISN-FM in Salt Lake City, Utah. He also met and married his wife Jacque.
Move to East Coast
From B104, he went to WJFK-FM in Washington, DC. In early 1992, Gray and Beck moved to the Hartford-New Haven area to WKCI-FM, which was also known as KC101, a Top-40 radio station. In 1995, WKCI-FM apologized after Beck and Gray mocked a Chinese-American caller on air who felt offended by a comedy segment by playing a gong sound effect and having executive producer Alf Gagineau mock a Chinese accent. That incident led to protests by activist groups.
Move to Houston
In 1995 Gray left Connecticut and returned to Salt Lake City to pursue a radio hosting position. In 2001, Gray was contacted by executive of the talk division of Clear Channel Communications and moved to Houston, Texas for a position at KPRC. While at KPRC in Houston, Texas, Gray hosted the morning drive time (5-9AM) slot, where he was joined weekly by Houston Chronicle columnist Ken Hoffman.
On July 1, 2009, Gray announced that he would be leaving KSEV to join the staff of Glenn Beck's Mercury Radio Arts. Gray left KSEV on July 13, 2009 to work with his friend Glenn Beck on The Glenn Beck Program.
In 2013, Gray opened a small K-12 private school with about forty kids where the parents were actively involved in the education of their children.
