The Morning Show
Yvonne Velazquez
Weekdays, 5:30AM - 10AM
Yvonne kicked off her radio career in the humble halls of West Long Branch’s Monmouth University. After holding the positions of Promotions Director, Program Director, and General Manager, she interned with MTV Press Relations. She wrapped up her college radio career by winning an award for her on-air performance and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication.

After completing an internship with MTV Networks, Yvonne was officially hired in their Original Programming department, producing and coordinating talent for MTV and VH1 Award Shows, among other pilots. In 1997, longing to return to her radio roots, she joined the #1 ranked Adult Contemporary station, in New Orleans, as an on-air personality for B97/WEZB-FM’s overnight slot. She quickly moved to filling in for vacationing full-timers and within 6 months, became the co-host for B97’s first female duo morning show.

In 1999, her quest to return to the East Coast commenced. Yvonne
re-located to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to co-host a syndicated morning show. She broadened her on-air work to include television and hosted a daily entertainment segment on the local CBS evening news.

As a native New Yorker, Yvonne was pursuing a gig back home when she learned of the partnership between MTV Radio and Sirius XM Satellite Radio. She provided the sole voice for MTV’s new 24-hour satellite radio station, in addition to serving as the station’s Assistant Program Director. For two years, she interviewed an exciting mix of musicians and celebrities, including crowd favorites like Will Smith, Nicole Kidman, RUN DMC, LL Cool J and Jersey Boy Jon Bon Jovi…and that just names a few!

After having her first 2 children, Yvonne returned to the traditional airwaves of WNEW New York, hosting the 7 to midnight slot. After 3 years and a format switch, Yvonne found a new home in Los Angeles. Now with a 3rd child in tow, Yvonne re-located west to host middays on Star 98.7/KYSR Los Angeles.

And yet another blessing later (code for 4th child), Yvonne decided to take some time off to be with her children and re-locate to Florida. After years of visiting family in the Palm Coast area, Yvonne and her husband Brian knew they would settle down in the Jacksonville area…they loved the proximity to 3 big cities, the amount of things to explore with the kids and the family oriented neighborhood in which they now reside. This is a permanent home for her family.

Yvonne’s new radio home is just as inviting. Being fortunate to have been chosen to co-host a morning show with Arthur Crofton, longtime Jacksonville morning show personality, on the premiere first coast Adult Contemporary station WEJZ, is a perfect way to cap off her career. She looks forward to many wonderful years entertaining the Jacksonville area.
