Jay Playburn not only has the dream job of being on TV, but he truly lives a life of adventure. Find out where the new guy has been and where he's headed.

Maybe Jay Plyburn should insert an "a" into his last name because Jay loves to play and lives a life of adventure. An avid biker, hiker, kayaker, rock climber, and camper, he's spent the last six months traveling in a van with his new wife. The SunnyMooners series on Plyburn's Faceook page documents their travels across the country with the road ending in Grand Rapids, Michigan where he will join Meredith TerHaar and Laura Hartman for the daily morning show at WZZM-13 On Your Side.

Jay is a perfect fit for our viewers in the morning. He’s got the talent to find the right stories that have an impact on West Michigan and the enthusiasm to keep people transfixed.

Julie Flynn, WZZM-13 On Your Side News Director

Plyburn's resume includes on-air jobs in West Texas, Fayetteville, Arkansas, and, most recently, Atlanta Georgia. He's more than a talking head, and has an IMDB page with 13 acting credits, and work as a producer, casting director and editor. Fans of The Resident on Fox might recognize him from his recurring role on the show, and Plyburn can also be seen on Insatiable on Netflix. Now, he can be seen on your screen hosting WMMZ-13 On Your Side's morning show with Meredith TerHaar and Laura Hartman.

Welcome to Kalamazoo, Jay, adventure awaits!
