Marcus Chapman was born and raised on Chicago’s south east side. He began his radio career at WKDI in DeKalb, Illinois while attending Northern Illinois University. After graduating with a Bachelors of Arts Degree and a minor in Black Studies, Chapman became the youngest employee at WGCI in Chicago. After serving time as a studio assistant and show producer, he joined the staff of on-air personalities. Chapman began building a significant following through his Friday night/Saturday morning show called “The Afterset”, and eventually became the host of WGCI‘s two hottest primetime weekend shows, and the city’s number one weekly party. Chapman was then hired by Indianapolis radio station WTLC as host of their nightly 6 to 10 show. While helping WTLC achieve number one ratings at night, Chapman garnered attention from stations in various cities around the country. After nearly landing in Washington DC, Miami, Philadelphia, and Raleigh, North Carolina, MC was hired by Dallas-Ft. Worth’s legendary KKDA, alias K104. He then returned to WGCI in Chicago, and also worked as a music researcher for the radio data company Mediabase. Chapman then relocated from Chicago to Atlanta, and was heard several times on that city’s #1 station WVEE (V103). He now resides in Dallas, Texas again.
