The Radio Personality

Shug's interviews are what set him apart. Guests are always comfortable, and whether they are household names or not, they all feel like stars! Sway Calloway of the "Sway in the Morning Show" on Sirius XM said this about Shug: "I think we can all learn something from this guy Shugabooga. When you see someone passionate about what they do- it shows!"

From Old school artists like Chuck D and MC Lyte to new artists like Vince Staples, Wiz Khalifa and Zendaya- Shug has a likability that gets artists to feel at home when they come on the show!

But as much as he loves radio- that's not where it ends!
