The year was 1991. Brick sized Cell phones were just breaking the mold of personal beepers, Legends of the Hidden Temple was on every TV screen and C&C Music Factory's 'Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)' was causing everyone to stop what they were doing and infact... dance now.
Then it happened. ErikZ was born and the world would forever be changed.
Okay, nothing really changed, at all, but someone needed to bring back the amazing-ness that was the 90's.
**Begin Real Bio HERE**
Modeling at the age of 5, Acting at the age of 7 and DJing his first real party at the age of 8, ErikZ has grown up with a love for Entertainment. Whether it's hanging out On-Air at 1035 KISSFM, DJing a festival for 4000+ patrons or Hosting both on screen and on stage, Erik is a performer to the core who loves nothing more than just being able to make others laugh.
After starting his own Internet Radio Station in High School and attending Columbia College Chicago for Radio Broadcasting, ErikZ joined the 1035 KISSFM Team as an Intern, then Promotions assistant, followed by a programming assistant and finally a On-Air Personality.
At the age of 21, Erik is one of the youngest personalities currently in the Clear Channel Media and Entertainment Network and THE youngest at KISS (which would explain why he is constantly making coffee runs for everyone).
When not in the studio, on stage, dancing or DJing, Erik loves taking long walks on the beach while reading 50 Shades of Gray... err.. he means, The Twilight Series.
Sooooo APPARENTLY the creator of Full House (Jeff Franklin) was asked by ABC to write a Full House SEQUAL (featuring most of the original cast)!!!!

The Great Doughnut Off
Jillian Conley Vs. ErikZ
So..... A couple weeks ago, Jillian Conley (author of hit books Maid of Honor and Dating Chase Walker) stopped by the station for an interview with 'The Weekly Show', we briefly met and stayed in touch (and by ‘in touch’ I mean… she FINALLY followed me back on Instagram...). THEN home girl decided to challenge me to a Doughnut eating contest (lol I swear it was honestly THAT random, but come on… it’s me). After a little planning, a lot of trash talk and the extremely generous help of ‘Glazed and Infused’, The Great Doughnut Off is going DOWNNNNNN!
Everything is happening Tuesday (Nov. 5th) at 4pm at the Kiss Studios BUT before then, I need y’all to vote!
Who's going to eat the most doughnuts in 3 minutes?
