-------------------------------------------
GLOBE WELCOMES BACK JASON ELLIS, THE PRO SKATER AND MOTOCROSSER, MIXED MARTIAL ARTIST, ACTOR AND RADIO HOST



EL SEGUNDO, CA - SEPTEMBER 2009 - JASON ELLIS, WHO APPEARED IN GLOBES FIRST SKATE AD BACK IN THE '90S AND HAS SINCE SET THE WORLD ON FIRE, INCLUDING A GUINNESS BOOK OF WORK RECORDS IN 2001 FOR THE BIGGEST DROP ONTO A 70 FOOT SKATEBOARD RAMP, IS BACK WITH THE GLOBE FAMILY.

ELLIS, WHO NOW HOSTS A CURRENT EVENT AND ACTION SPORTS-ORIENTED COMEDY PROGRAM, THE JASON ELLIS SHOW, ON SIRIUS RADIO STATION XM 52, HAS MILLIONS OF DEVOTED LISTENERS EACH DAY, CAPTIVATING THEM WITH HIS MANY CHARACTERS, VOICEOVERS AND SEGMENTS. HE IS ALSO THE LEAD SINGER OF THE SHOWS BAND TAINTSTICK.

ORIGINALLY FROM AUSTRALIA, ELLIS MOVED TO THE US WHEN HE WAS 17 TO BECOME A PROFESSIONAL SKATEBOARDER. SKATEBOARDING IS STILL AT THE CENTER OF ALL HE DOES, BUT ELLIS HOW HAS MYRIAD OTHER PURSUITS THAT KEEP HIM CRAZY BUSY: TRAINING AS A PROFESSIONAL MIXED MARTIAL ARTIST, MC'ING HUGE ACTION SPORTS EVENTS LIKE TONY HAWK'S BOOM BOOM HUCK JAM, RIDING MOTOCROSS, APPEARING IN BLOCKBUSTER FILMS LIKE THE RECENTLY RELEASED, MALL COP, OR PERFORMING WITH HIS BAND. PLUS, HE IS CO-FOUNDER OF A FOUNDATION WITH GOOD FRIEND, TONY HAWK, CALLED STAND UP FOR SKATEPARKS AND IS A STAUNCH SUPPORTER OF THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUE OF AMERICA. ELLIS IS ALSO ACTIVE IN THE TONY HAWK FOUNDATION, CREATE A SKATE, GRIND FOR LIFE, AND VICKI'S CURE.

ELLIS WON HIS PROFESSIONAL MIXED MARTIAL ARTS DEBUT AGAINST BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU SPECIALIST TONY GIANOPULOS, IN FEBRUARY 2009 AND WILL CONTINUE FIGHTING IN THE TEAM QUEST CAMP WITH MANY VICTORIES ON THE HORIZON.

"AS HE WAS BACK IN THE DAY, AND PERHAPS EVEN MORE SO NOW, JASON IS TRULY A GLOBE BRAND PERSONALITY, WITH HIS IRREVERENCE, INTERNATIONAL APPEAL, DEEP ROOTS IN SKATEBOARDING AND A TOTAL COMMITMENT TO ANY CHALLENGE PUT IN FRONT OF HIM" SAID MICHAEL MARCKX, GLOBE'S VICE PRESIDENT GLOBAL MARKETING, ADDING, "AS THE NEXT HOWARD STERN, JASON'S GENIUS AND VERSATILITY, ARE MOST EVIDENT IN THE FACT THAT THE GUY SPENDS AS MUCH TIME IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA AS HE DOES BEHIND THE MIC. HE'S GOT THE TALK AND THE WALK."



THE JASON ELLIS SHOW
WEEKDAYS 3PM-7PM ET
THE QUESTION IS THIS: WILL JASON ELLIS BE ABLE TO SIT STILL LONG ENOUGH TO HOST HIS DAILY SIRIUS RADIO SHOW? THE GO-GO DAREDEVIL OF PROFESSIONAL SKATEBOARDING, MOTOCROSS AND THE TRULY SCARY BUSINESS OF TELEVISION SPORTS COMMENTARY IS ALSO PART OF TEAM FACTION. JASON WILL TALK WITH CELEBRITY GUESTS FROM HIS MANY WORLDS OF EXPERTISE AND CRANK UP THE MUSIC THAT INSPIRES HIM TO RIDE THE MEGA RAMP. LISTEN AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Guinness book of work records? Do they include most cups of instant coffee consumed in a day, longest ciggy break, hours consumed by the intergoogles?

How cool is Ellis' interview! "We'll just punch each other in the face'.

But why is the fight sponsored by Ryan Sheckler?
