IRVING -- It's 4:00 in the morning and while most people are still sleeping, the hosts of The Kidd Kraddick Morning Show are gearing up for that day's broadcast. The radio show, which has been waking people up for more than 20 years, is a fixture in DFW and more than 75 other markets throughout the country.

A big reason for the show's success is the four hosts behind the mic. NewsFix caught up with one of those hosts, J-Si, during a recent ride through Irving.

J-Si was born in Mexico and grew up in San Diego. He says he stumbled into the radio business during college, where he was enrolled to become a nurse. One of the last electives he took was radio.

"And on my way home, I was listening to the radio and a commercial came on asking if you wanted to be an intern," he reflected. One thing led to another, and before he knew it he was moving to Dallas to be on a show which was then called "Kidd Kraddick in the Morning."

He hasn't gotten to where he is without a good work ethic. "It's not like I became an intern, and then here I am on The Kidd Kraddick Morning Show. It was a lot of hard work," he said.

When he's not on the radio, or TV, he's giving back. One of the charities he works with the most is Kidd's Kids of the Kraddick Foundation.

A host of a nationally syndicated radio show, a husband, and father of two kids, J-Si's resume nearly speaks for itself. You can follow him on Facebook and Twitter.
