The LOUDMOUTH Zannie K
What up Detroit?! Zannie K. Don’t laugh – That’s my REAL NAME. It’s from the African word ZHANE. It means “he who goes first.“
Born and raised in Chicago, I’m the oldest of five. Radio was all I ever wanted to do so after college (Southern University & Central State University both HBCUs) I pursued my radio career full force. My radio roots started in Muskegon, MI. I’ve also worked in many cities before landing in Detroit, like Memphis, Miami and Minneapolis …and those are just the “M” cities!
I’m a husband and proud father of 3 happy, healthy young men: Keanu, Quentin & Devin. I’m a huge sports fan (especially basketball, football, boxing & baseball)! I love watching movies and have a special place in my heart for the ones that star rappers turned actors like 8 Mile, Bad Boys and Get Rich or Die Trying. I’m also a people person, so you can imagine this COVID crap is killing me! Lastly, I am extremely passionate about grilling… It’s NEVER a bad day to be on the grill and I’m a year-round testament to that.
I am extremely overjoyed to finally call “The D” my home, as I have pursued work in this great city for many years. Be sure to check me out weekdays 3pm to 7pm on “The Loudmouth in the BOUNCE HOUSE” on 105.1 The BOUNCE!
