Don “Action” Jackson started his media career on Cape Cod, Massachusetts as in the small town of Falmouth where he grew up. His love affair with it began in his high school TV studio where he worked all 4 years of his schooling.
He segued into radio at the local community college in the early 80s, and began his professional radio career picking the music and being on the air at WCOD playing soft hits for 5 years. He later worked at a top 40 station on the Cape, while moonlighting weekends in Boston (the 5th largest radio market in the world then) at Z-94.
Don moved to Las Vegas in 1988 playing the hits on Power 97, moving around from Late Nights, to Nights, to Afternoon Drive and to a brief stint at Mornings before he left.
Then Action found his way to Cleveland in 1991, where he spent 10 years playing party hits at Jammin’ 92, then 17 years driving people home playing oldies and eventually classic 70s and 80s hits on heritage station Majic 105.7. A whopping 28 years in the same market.
During that time, Jackson was also heard syndicated around the country playing Classic Hits of the 70’s & 80s in over 50 cities. You may have heard Action in Lexington on Rewind 105.5 on weekends over the last 12 years.
And now Don “Action” Jackson will be helping you wake up and get going from 6-10am in the morning daily with Lexington’s Greatest Hits exclusively on Kiss 96.9.
