Radio One personality J Kruz of 97.9 the Beat in Dallas recently joined CW Network’s Eye Opener Morning Show as the host and
Co-Producer of the new music segment “The Underground”. The show features urban independent artists from across the country.
The ten year radio veteran hand picks the artists featured on the show each week. Childish Gambino, Kat Dahlia, and Flint Michigan rapper, Jon Conner are a few of the artists recently spotlighted.
Making the transition from radio to television has been a great experience for J-Kruz and he welcomes the challenge.
“I’m truly grateful to the staff at CW for giving me this opportunity. I know all sides of radio, but television is new to me and they’re allowing me to learn as I go.”
The show producers are equally excited about their decision to add J-Kruz to their popular morning show.
Justin Allen, the Executive Producer of Eye Opener says, “We’re very fortunate to have J-Kruz contributing his in-depth knowledge of new and upcoming artists. “The Underground” has quickly become one of the favorites among viewers and our own producers.”
The segment airs Thursday mornings during the Eye Opener Morning Show on CW and repeats at night on Nightcap in Dallas and on News Fix in Houston.
