Talent Training

FCB Radio Network having an impact in urban culture

“‘Do it for the culture’. That’s one of the things that we’re always saying around the studio”, says Darvio “The Kingpin” Morrow, co-host of the Outlaws Radio Show and CEO of the FCB Radio Network. “We make no bones about the fact that we represent the culture and as a result, we’ve been able to attract a diverse listenership across all ages, races and ethnicities.”

FCB Radio (a podcast network whose letters stand for the company’s legal name “First Class Broadcasting”) was founded in 2014 after Darvio, a 30-year-old African-American, left a former radio show out of frustration. Darvio says “I wanted to create a platform for people to be themselves and just create entertaining content that would be attractive to listeners and advertisers alike.”

The first show launched by the network was The Outlaws Radio Show, an urban hot topics, pop culture and news-of-the-day driven program.
