Radio Personality

A radio personality (American English) or radio presenter (British English), commonly referred to as a “Disc Jockey” or “DJ” for short, is a person who has an on-air position in radio broadcasting. A radio personality that hosts a radio show is also known as a radio host, and in India and Pakistan as a radio jockey. Radio personalities who introduce and play individual selections of recorded music are known as disc jockeys. The term has evolved to also describe a person who mixes a continuous flow of recorded music in real time. Broadcast radio personalities may include talk radio hosts, AM/FM radio show hosts, and satellite radio program hosts. Notable radio personalities include pop music radio hosts Martin Block, Alan Freed, Dick Clark, Delilah Luke, Ameen Sayani, Wolfman Jack, and Casey Kasem, shock jocks such as Don Imus and Howard Stern, as well as sports talk hosts such as Mike Francesa and political talk hosts such as Rush Limbaugh. I personally have been a radio personality for a few seconds months now on KKSM Palomar College Radio. I play different genres and formats ranging from underground, independent, Reggae, Hip-Hop, Old School and Neo-Soul. I plan to further my career by applying to a few stations and growing my experience and skill sets.
