Chicago DJs are celebrating loud and proud because one of their very own has got the assignment of a lifetime. John Coleman III most commonly know as DJ Lil’ John will be filling some big shoes over at Crawford Broadcasting’s WSRB FM 106.3 during the evening timeslot, a spot that was previously held by Tony Sculfield who recently transitioned to host mornings at KBLA in San Francisco. Coleman who formally trained and began his career at WKKC’s 89.3FM and while he is not new to commercial radio by any means as he was a top mixologist at iHeartMedia station WGCI FM 107.5 and hosted “Club 1063”. Look like WSRB 106.3‘s Program Director Jay Alan has had his eye on DJ Lil’ John for a while now.
EarHustle411 spoke to Lil’ John very briefly to congratulate him on his newest assignment and he had this to say:
“Me and my wife are extremely excited about this new chapter and I can’t be anything but truly grateful for those who have supported me and encouraged me on my journey. It’s truly a blessing”
