Radio host, author, television host, and lawyer, Jennifer Koppelman Hutt’s self-deprecating humor, honesty and willingness to talk about everything has won her legions of loyal fans since she started hosting on SiriusXM in 2005.
Currently, Jenny is the host of Just Jenny, a daily call-in show airing Monday through Friday from 6pm-8pmET/3pmPT-5pmPT on SiriusXM Stars channel 109. On the show, Jennifer tackles daily current events plus subjects you would only think to discuss with your best friends. Jenny invites listeners to engage in honest, humorous conversations on a variety of topics and issues – from the news to grieving the loss of a parent, to transforming the body and spirit through healthy eating and exercise. She also interviews celebrities and influencers in all aspects of life!
She also co-hosted SiriusXM’s “Jon Hein’s TV show,” with Jon Hein, radio personality and creator of the popular “Jump The Shark” website.
Jenny appeared frequently on television as a special correspondent for CBS/YAHOO’s The INSIDER, CBS’ Entertainment Tonight, and recently spent a year co-hosting on HLN’s Dr. Drew on Call. She was also seen many nights on HLN’s ShowBiz Tonight. Jenny has been featured on BetterTV, CNN newsroom with Brooke Baldwin. She has also appeared on the TODAY Show, CBS’ The Talk, The Wendy Williams show, Joy Behar – Say Anything!, Jane Valez-Mitchell, Good Day New York, WPIX and more.
Jenny had a web series called “Treadmill Talk with Jenny Hutt” Co-produced with PowerwomenTV. In this series Jenny interviews celebrities, tastemakers and fascinating people on a treadmill in various hot spots around NYC and beyond! Segments from “Treadmill Talk with Jenny Hutt” appear on PowerwomenTV.
Before Just Jenny, Jenny hosted “Whatever with Jennifer” on Sirius/XM and was a frequent contributor to CNN’s stream team.
Her first book, WHATEVERLAND: Learning to Live Here: An Exuberant and Hilariously Irreverent Guide to Life, was co-authored with Alexis Stewart and was published by John Wiley & Sons in October, 2011. Their critically acclaimed TV show “Whatever, Martha” ran for three seasons.
Like most working mothers, Jennifer’s career took a circuitous route. After finishing at Tufts University outside Boston in 1992, she graduated from Hofstra University Law School (yes she’s licensed and in good standing) and then studied voice and acting. Soon, Jennifer met her future husband, Keith Hutt. They married within a year and a half, settled in her hometown on Long Island – right next door to her parents and her sister, Stacy – and had two children. Once they reached school-age, Jennifer was finally able to focus on her career and the unexpected on-air opportunities that presented themselves.
Despite the surprising twists and turns that brought Jennifer into America’s cars and living rooms, she is no stranger to the entertainment business: her father, Charles Koppelman, was a legendary music producer (The Lovin’ Spoonful, Dolly Parton, Paul Anka, Cher, Eddie Murphy, The Four Tops, Barbra Streisand, to name only a few artists and groups he worked with), and her brother, Brian Koppelman, is a screenwriter, director, and producer (Rounders, Ocean’s Thirteen). That might explain her love of popular culture and her ease in front of a microphone or camera, but her approachable ‘everywoman’ style explains her appeal: Jennifer connects with her audience, especially women, in a way few media personalities can.
