Konan is a 36-year veteran in the radio and music industry. He started his career with Cathy Hughes at WOL-1450AM in 1985.
He quickly became a household name in the DC area for his community work outside of radio. He went to schools to read for the youth in the RIF (Reading Is Fundamental) program and enjoyed the impact it made on the kids in the school system. He learned very early on that serving the community gave him much more satisfaction than just being on the radio.
In 1992, Cathy Hughes called on Konan to head up her newly purchased station in Baltimore. From then, 92Q and several other stations became a part of the Radio One Family. Big Brother Konan was called on to take over nights, 7 pm -12 am to go up against Frank Ski to beat V103 the heritage station.
92Q and Konan beat the ratings race because they worked in the community every day. He believes he has been blessed to help out through radio as a means of communication.
Konan has been #1 in every time slot on 92Q- Mornings, Midday, Afternoon, and Evenings.
He gives all the credit to his listeners and believes serving the community is the driving force behind his success. Konan believes that Nothing works if YOU don’t! If YOU Love the community as yourself you can help it change.
