He has been a constant at our station for 20 years developing strong relationships with artists, managers, community leaders and his dedication is reflective in its success.

Most of all, I am excited about his vision for JAM’N’s future.” DJ Pup Dawg started his radio journey at 92.3 The Beat in Los Angeles and joined the JAM’N 94.5 team in 2002.

“I followed my dreams and made a hobby into a passion and career. Los Angeles raised me, but Boston made me! Radio has given me the opportunities people dream of. I'm living the dream. This was all made possible with guidance from my boss and mentor, Dylan Sprague. I’m so grateful that he took the time to develop me for this next chapter. I've come up in this business and made real life-long connections.
JAM’N is my family!”
