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.[1] Gray was formerly the host of the morning show on the Houston radio station KSEV.

Early life[edit]

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.[citation needed]

Move to East Coast[edit]

In 1989 he moved to Baltimore, Maryland, where he would go on the air at WBSB-FM, which was also known as B104. The morning show partner for that show was Glenn Beck.[1]

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.[citation needed]

Move to Houston[edit]

950 KPRC[edit]

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.

700 KSEV[edit]

On December 12, 2006 Gray moved to across Houston and began co-hosting KSEV's morning show with Edd Hendee.[2]

TheBlaze[edit]

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.[3]

Gray now co-hosts The Pat & Stu Show with Steve Burguiere, a two-hour-long program, which airs on the Dish Network channel 212 and "TheBlaze TV" online every weekday at 12:00 Noon ET.

Private life[edit]

Gray is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.[4]

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.[5]
