Midday Personality Cappuchino Joins Power 99

WUSL POWER 99 in Philadelphia has filled one of the open slots on the station's schedule with former 99.7 KMJJ Shreveport personality Cappuchino. She replaces former on-air host Shamara as the midday personality on the urban/hip-hop station. Part timer Johnny V had been doing fill-in duties.

Still no word on Power 99's new morning show as it is still being held down by the night show hosts "The Hot Boyz." The duo are filling in for the departed Tarsha "Jonesy in the Morning" Jones.

Here's more on Power 99's newest on-air personality.

FROM 99.7 KMJJ- Born and raised in Miami, Cappuchino brings a host of experience to her family at KMJJ. Taking an interest in journalism at a young age, Capp thought her road was going to be newspaper or print. A tour of Florida A&M University made her realize she wanted to do radio after hearing the campus radio station. Cappuchino attended Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, Florida.

The campus radio station continued to feed her interest and she soon started attending meetings to learn the ins and outs of not only being an on-air personality but also engineering her own shows. By her second semester the half-Thai half-African American beauty was given the moniker Cappuchino (because of the hue of her skin), and had earned a spot on the Sunday schedule and graciously filled in for other personalities as needed, until she got her own weekly show. She also began training other students and served as a college record representative for Atlantic Records.

After receiving her B.S. degree in newspaper journalism, she decided to stick with radio. She began working for commercial radio as a part timer and within a little more than a year, she found full-time employment in Shreveport.
