shock jock(redirected from a shock-jockey)
An intentionally provocative or outrageous host of a talk show on a radio station. Shortened from "shock jockey," which is itself modeled on "disc jockey" (someone who selects and plays music on a radio station). Howard Stern has got to be the most famous shock jock, right? He constantly seems to be offending some group or another. This guy's my favorite shock jock. He can make your blood boil at times, but he's always entertaining!
