Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, I grew up listening to the station, especially Elvis Duran and the Z100 morning show. Now I have to pinch myself every time I get on the mic. I broadcast live every day from 2am to 5am on the very same station I listened to as a kid. I must admit, dreams really do come true.
My road to Z100 was a long one, but it taught me the importance of working hard and paying dues. In fact, I started my career interning with Elvis Duran and the Z100 Morning Show, alongside other stints at Jive Records and MTV. Never turning down an opportunity to showcase my on-air talent, I caught the attention of the morning crew with my willingness to speak candidly about my personal life, which the gang found very amusing. This occasionally got me invited on air to offer opinions on current events, and I loved being able to share my personality with millions of listeners.
After completing the internship, I landed a show of my own at GOOM Radio, a digital radio start-up from the minds of the executives at Clear Channel and Google Audio. During my time there, I hosted my own Top 40 radio show, interviewing some of musicís biggest stars, including Demi Lovato, Kesha, Ariana Grande, and almost every teen star on Nickelodeon. With GOOM, I became even more confident behind the mic, and I realized my true talent was just being myself! In a way, you could say I was born to do this.
Following my time at GOOM, I worked a variety of gigs, including on-air shifts at 98Q in Danbury, Connecticut and WBLI in Long Island. During my time at WBLI I hosted the morning show for 6 weeks while the host was on maternity leave. As host my interview with Demi Lovato made national news and was included in a segment on ENEWS. I co-hosted the nationally syndicated radio show, ďThe Zach Sang Show,Ē which broadcasts on 60 stations across the country. During my time there, I hosted a weekly on-air segment with People Magazine. In addition to my radio repertoire, I also work as an on-camera reporter for Clevver TV, interviewing such stars as Vanessa Williams, Tyler Perry, Tim Burton, the entire cast of LOST and many more.
Now Iíve come full circle. Iím back on Z100, the station I listened to as a kid in Brooklyn and the station that gave me my first opportunity as an unknown talent. I also currently co-host the nationally syndicated radio show "The Weekend Throwdown With Jagger" interviewing many of our celebrity guests including Nick Jonas, Selena Gomez, Fifth Harmony, Bruno Mars, DJ Khaled and more.
