Kane wasn't always the center of attention -- or very popular. Growing up in Danbury, CT. he ran with the geeky "art" crowd. Picked on by jocks, made fun of by the burnouts and turned down by the cheerleaders, Kane had an uneventful childhood. His love for radio began in High School when he interned for WKCI-FM, KC101 in New Haven, CT. where he painted offices, cleaned vans and was accused of sleeping with the Program Directors wife (he was only 16). He continued to drive an hour to intern for free until he graduated high school in 1995 -- his parents were worried. It was then that Kane was accepted to Syracuse University's school of Visual and Performing Arts and was going to pursue a career in advertising and design. While attending college, he volunteered for Z89, one of the two radio stations operated by the University, as well as hosting the most listened to night show in Central New York on WWHT/Hot 107.9. From the blustery cold of upstate New York, Kane moved to Tampa, FL in 1998 to host the night show on WFLZ/93-3 FLZ. Within the first year The Extreme Show with Kane was heard in 17 cities nationwide 5 nights a week. In March of 2003 Kane began hosting the legendary Open House Party, a syndicated live weekend show heard in 150+ cities every Sunday night. After spending some time in sunny Florida it was time for the next step. He was hired at Hot 99-5 in October of 2006. In addition to hosting the morning show on Hot, Kane still hosts his afternoon show on WFLZ/Tampa as well as WLDI/West Palm Beach, broadcast from his basement home-studio. Kane has been awarded the Radio Music Award for CHR Air Personality Of The Year as well as A.I.R. Awards for best evening drive show and best new talent. And in December of 2008, The Kane Show won the prestigious FMQB national award for Best Morning Show. He's had the chance to talk to every major artist from Usher to Britney, 50 Cent to Mariah. He's even had his own television show. Kane speaks regularly to Elementary and Middle schools about the importance of education and volunteers his time to various events throughout Washington, DC. He's an accomplished artist and aviation enthusiast and is finishing work on his pilots license. Kane lives in Gaithersburg, MD. with his wife Natasha, daughter Samantha, along with two dogs and a cat.
