Quick Profile: Who is Elvis Duran?

Elvis Duran

Elvis Duran is the first voice many New Yorkers and radio listeners hear in the morning.

As a respectable, loud, well known radio hosts there is no way the world is not familiar with Duran. Every morning, from 6 am to 10 am, Monday through Friday, the world hears the radio styling of Elvis Duran and the Morning Show on Z100.

With the help of his cohosts, Danielle Monaro and Medha Gandhi, and an extensive list of amazing producers and radio cohorts, this show has become syndicated in 80 markets and reaches over ten million listeners.

Duran is the focal point for any radio lover that enjoys a dose of brutal honesty with their morning coffee. Not to mention the radio show’s track record of interviewing some of the most famous music stars imaginable.

NEW YORK (May 22, 2015) – Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen appear on the Elvis Duran in the Morning Show May 22 during Fleet Week New York (FWNY). FWNY, now in its 27th year, is the city’s time-honored celebration of the sea services. It is an unparalleled opportunity for the citizens of New York and the surrounding tri-state area to meet Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen, as well as witness firsthand the latest capabilities of today’s maritime services.

You Might Ask What Else Has Elvis Duran Accomplished?

His Morning Show is the most listened to radio show out of the Top 40 list in the country. He is also a constant presence in many events and shows. Some include NBC’s ‘Today’ Show, IHeartRadio Music Festival, and NYC’s Jingle Ball Music Gala held every year. The real question is will Duran involve himself in next?

What is the key to success for this legendary radio host? Personally, I will always admire Duran’s capability to be openly honest and insatiably curious of the world around him. That’s why no matter who his cohosts or guests are he is able to have a good time with anyone; including his audience. From the unforgettable previous cohost Bethany Watson, to the semi-new and amazing cohost Medha Gandhi and the ever amazing cohost Danielle Morano (whose laugh I revel in), Duran can make any situation memorable. Which is really hard to do at 6 am.

What Is The Next Step For Such A Successful Person?

Like any person who has lived a full life Duran chooses to make his life fuller by writing an autobiography. I am happy to say that I will see Duran talk about his autobiography at a local NYC Barnes and Noble event. One of many for his book tour. I can’t wait to put a in-person face to the man that made my college commutes enjoyable. Here is a link to his autobiography, Where Do I Begin? Stories (I Sort of Remember) form a Life Lived Out Loud. I promise that your life will be better when reading a story from such an honest and relatable human being.
