‘Big Mama’ Takes a Beasley Pause For School Board Bid


FORT MYERS BEACH, FLA. — To listeners of a Beasley Media Group Top 40 station in its home market, he’s known as “Big Mama.” To the Lee County Florida School Board, he’s candidate Jason Jones.

With his candidacy, this longtime morning show zookeeper is taking time away from the program he leads to avoid any equal time requirements the FCC enforces.

Jones, who has lead “Big Mama and the Wild Bunch” for some 14 years at WXKB “B103.9,” has been absent from the wake-up program since Friday, June 10. The reason: He’s running against Lee County School Board Chairman Debbie Jordan and two other candidates for the seat.
As such, the other cast members of the morning show are in charge, for now.

Jones, a Dayton, Ohio, native, is married and has three kids. He’s touting his work in the community as a radio host as one of the reasons residents of Lee County, home to Fort Myers, should vote for him.
