Props from Satellite to Terrestrial!
In an industry where many people are always busy focusing on the future, it is always nice to see and hear kind words from industry vets who acknowledge those who gave them their first shot!
SiriusXM’s Heart & Soul popular show host, Cayman Kelly, recently took a moment to acknowledge Radio One’s Senior VP Jay Stevens.
“Jay Stevens gave me my first opportunity to be on air! Since that first day I’ve been on the radio consistently for 20 years! Now, he trust me to image some radio stations that he’s in charge of. It takes one person to see your potential and give you a chance! #forevergrateful #thankfultoGod”
Cayman Kelly started his career under Jay Stevens in DC at WPGC-FM. Kelly’s impressive career in radio and voice over work is to be admired. Kelly is a signed voice talent of The Don Buchwald Agency in New York, has been the official voice of BET and BET-J, and is currently the official voice of several radio stations across the country, including Power 105.1 in New York City. Kelly has also voiced television promos for TV Land’s highest rated show, “Hot in Cleveland,” and is currently the promo voice for Bounce TV, The Cartoon Network, TV One. Cayman Kelly can be heard on SiriusXM’s Heart & Soul hosting his very popular music show from 12p-6p daily.
Truth be told, Jay Stevens, SVP of Programming Content for Radio One, is responsible for opening the first door and launching the careers of many of today’s top radio personalities, djs and programmers around the country. #MusicIsTheStar
Much respect to both, Cayman and Jay!
