I‘ve been in radio for over a decade, and part of the HOT 107-9 staff for three of those years. I started out doing nights, eventually becoming the morning show host. When I’m not on-air I enjoy playing basketball, tennis, golf, and working out at the gym. I also love to add to my music library, addicted to finding the next "big song." I also DJ in nightclubs across Acadiana. My proudest moment in my career came in the summer of 2013 when I was able to help get a family an air conditioner for their home
I've always been asked - ‘Do you love your job?’ My response is this - Its not a job, its my way of life. Jobs are for people that punch a clock and sit in an office. I love being on the radio, talking to people and playing great music. 2nd question I always get asked - Why the name Speedy? My mother gave me the nickname ‘Speedy’ when I was a baby, because I ran before I walked. I'm from New Orleans, part of the Who Dat Nation… Have been ever since I was a kid watching Bobby Hebert on the field
I have always loved records, shoes, and bacon. Fortunately, one of those obsessions has allowed me to make a decent living. In late 2003, I was given an opportunity to join Hot 107.9 as one of the original jocks when the station went live on the air. A decade after accepting a part-time weekend shift, taking my vitamins, drinking milk, and staying in school, I am now the Program Director of Hot 107.9. Join me on-air every weekday afternoon from 2p-6p, and in the mix live from 8p-12a for our 'Saturday Night In The City' mix show
Born and raised in South Louisiana, DJ Dolby D was instrumental in bringing the underground sounds of hip-hop from Houston to New Orleans into the mainstream. Labels like Cash Money, No Limit, Rap-A-Lot and many others had his number on speed dial as the go-to DJ when it was time to break their next hit.
Growing up in New Orleans, I knew I wanted to be a DJ since I was a kid. Moved to Lafayette and eventually got the opportunity to be on-air and haven't looked back since. Being in radio, I've had the opportunity to DJ at most of the clubs in Lafayette as well as an occasional gig in Baton Rouge. I'm on the air every Monday through Friday from 10-2pm.
Clinton Sparks' first steps toward fame were made with his remixes of popular singles, which he delivered to radio DJs in his native Massachusetts. He then assembled mixtapes, distributed them up and down the East Coast, and earned enough clout to snare big-name MCs for exclusive verses. That led to hosting live radio programs in Boston, Baltimore, and Hartford. Although he made major moves as a producer, worked as a correspondent on the E! News channel, and spun at high-profile parties, he didn't cease making remixes and mixtapes, such as the My Awesome Mixtape series
Turn down the lights, and turn up the radio every Sunday night and join R Dub for four hours of Slow Jams from 8p-midnight. In addition to hundreds of prizes given away to listeners each month, R Dub also features Oral Expressions; long distance shout outs and dedications from listeners tuning into the show.
I love radio! There, I said it, now you all know. Honestly, what's not to love? Music, celeb gossip and local stories all in one place! Originally from Upstate New York I started as a part-timer at a local radio station right after college and eventually made my way to the mic. I'm pretty obsessed with pizza and all things music, movie and pop culture related, and I'm not embarrassed to say that I am almost always using some sort of social media. Did I mention I love pizza?
