J-Si Chavez was born in Mexico, grew up in San Diego and got his start as the morning show’s “Man on the Street.” In 2006, the legendary radio host Kidd Kraddick brought him to join the cast of the
Kidd Kraddick Morning Show where he quickly connected with a national audience. For 4 seasons, he was featured on FOX’s syndicated tv show, Dish Nation.
J-Si tells you a little more about himself:
I was born in Mexico City and made a living by selling Chiclets. I pretty much made a killin’ with a whopping $487.75 a year. I was kicked off my corner by a much bigger and stronger kid, so I gave up selling Chiclets. I was inducted into the Chiclets Hall of Fame back in 1998. Ok, I am kidding about the selling Chiclets… or am I? I like to be mysterious. My family moved to California in 1991 and on my first day of school 3 older kids jumped me and stole my popcorn. I ended up growing up physically (my mind is still stuck in 5th grade) and fell into radio. How? I have no idea. It literally just happened. I actually wanted to be a nurse. I have one dog: Dex. My wife’s name is Kinsey. I have been with her since I was 19 years old. She is a California girl who loves to shop. I also have a boy named Cason! He’s a stud. And a baby girl named Chloe. I am a HUGE football fan. I have met tons of awesome celebs thanks to this job… except my idol Eminem : ( Maybe someday it will happen (hint hint). I like to eat pretty much anything and my best friend is my PS4.
Thanks for listening.
I was absolutely certain at a very young age what I wanted to do for a living. There was never a doubt in my mind. Being a sportscaster was my focus in high school and college and nothing could change that course! Except…when a country radio station in San Diego offered me…wait for it….$16,500…. to assist in the promotions department, run the research department and be a small part of the station’s morning show. At 20 years old, I immediately abandoned my life journey to dabble in morning radio and live the life of the rich and famous on $16,500.
