JAY CRUZE   Weekdays 3pm - 7pm
I can tell you the minute I rolled into Denver in April of '09 from New York City, I knew I would never leave Colorado! Little known fact, my second ever radio gig, back in 1994, was in Craig, Colorado. From the time Jay Cruze was a young kid growing up in Brooklyn NY, it was clear he was born to amuse others. As early as kindergarten, it was very common for his teachers to remark on his report card "he's smart, but draws too much attention to himself.” Jay was destined to be on the radio! A couple of kids, and many vacant hair follicles later, Jay continues to draw attention with his high energy and witty personality. 


Kevin's radio journey began over 16 years ago. Kevin Mussman is a Colorado native that grew up in a small town in Northern Colorado. You can usually find Kevin out and about walking his Beagle, Jasmine, in the mountains hiking, and going on day trips around Colorado. Kevin loves a night on the town, dining out, checking out the latest movie, walking around Downtown Denver or the 16th Street Mall on a nice Colorado evening, and checking out a Rockies Game at Coors Field in the hot summer sun.  

When Kevin was younger his parents, family and friends knew that he would most likely end up working in broadcasting as Kevin would walk around interviewing anyone that would give him a few minutes of their time. Kevin used his Fisher Price® tape recorder “playing radio”  starting at the age of 4. In middle school, Kevin set up a mock television set in his mother’s basement and recruited friends to help him produce a television show that he taped on an old VHS camera. Kevin and his friends would interview local celebrities and just about anyone else that would be willing to join the show. In high school, Kevin discovered he had a passion to pursue a career in broadcasting after visiting a taping of a show at 9NEWS (KUSA-TV) and ever since then, his passion for being on the air has only grown. Two weeks after graduating from high school, Kevin had his first job in radio.

Kevin’s pride and joy is his four-legged furry child, Jasmine, his Beagle. Jasmine has way too much energy so she loves to play, go for walks and go with Kevin just about anywhere he goes. For some reason Jasmine doesn’t like riding in the car (anxiety) but she loves the destination (as long as it’s not the vet or the dog groomer) 

I've called Colorado home since 1980. Blizzards, hail storms, I've seen it all! I went to CU - Boulder and have a bachelor's degree in Broadcast Journalism. Glad that college degree didn't go to waste! I love music and that is why I first chose radio over television, and then decided I didn't want to leave! Yep, I love it here so much at KOSI, that I have been a part of the KOSI team since 1996! I got married on the beach in Hawaii, visited Hawaii again for our 10th wedding anniversary, and have a young daughter who has a passion for music too.

So, can you guess? My favorite place to be is by the water...beach, lake... you name it, and I'm there ready to play!
