Hi. I'm an on-air host, writer, and podcast producer in NYC.
...and am currently the Director of Podcasts at Pride Media (The Advocate & Out Magazine).
"If you want to understand what it sounds like when a host is prepared, look no further than Jeffrey Masters. His interest in his guests’ stories, as well as his encouraging manner, allows him to get beyond the surface whether he’s interviewing activists or members of the entertainment industry."- The New York Times
"The overused term “overnight success” is supremely apt in the case of Jeffrey Masters." - The Advocate
"Masters is a superb interviewer." - Mashable
"Masters welcomes high-profile people...with his unique brand of probing curiosity." - Oprah Daily
"...thoughtful, humble, and inquisitive journalist" - Women's Health
As a host and podcast producer, I specialize in long-form interviews and am currently interviewing influential LGBTQ+ people like Roxane Gay, Laverne Cox, and Pete Buttigieg on my podcast, LGBTQ&A. (You can watch my sit-down with Pete Buttigieg here.)
LGBTQ&A has been featured in The New York Times, The Advocate (this profile's particularly flattering), USA Today, NBC, GLAAD, NewNowNext, People Magazine, Page Six, and was ranked #2 on a list of the top podcasts to listen to by Buzzfeed.
I've appeared multiple times on NPR's Pop Culture Happy Hour and have written for The Advocate (including the June 2021 cover story with Niecy Nash, Out, HuffPost, PopSugar, Into (RIP), Pride, HIV Plus magazine, and Hello Mr.
In 2021, I received a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Print Article for my reporting, and was also included in Logo TV's inaugural Logo30 list of influential LGBTQ+ people. Here's what Logo had to say (as well as the video feature you can watch here):
"Whether he’s chatting with seminal AIDS advocate Cleve Jones or rising powerhouses like Our Lady J and Keiynan Lonsdale, Masters digs deep, surpassing expected coming out stories in favor of examining specific life moments that have defined the queer luminaries we love."
