Comedian Earthquake is no stranger to radio. He’s been a regular contributor every Tuesday and Thursday on The Steve Harvey Morning Show and has been known to fill-in for Steve Harvey when Steve’s out on vacation. He’s also no stranger to New York media receiving nods from New York based radio icon Howard Stern and ‘The View’s’, Whoopi Goldberg appearing several times with Howard Stern on his acclaimed radio show and as Whoopi Goldberg’s hand-selected guest this year on ABC’s The View, both labeling Earthquake as personal favorites.

Earthquake’s various television appearances include his past recurring role as ‘Uncle Mike’ on CW’s Everybody Hates Chris, his surprise appearance this season on BET’s The Game and unforgettable performances on HBO’s One-Night Stand, Premium Blend for Comedy Central, TBS Comedy Festival, HBO’s Def Comedy Jam and more.

Déjà Vu has served the Tri-State Community for over 15 years and was a central part of the original air-staff that launched Power 105.1. Listeners have grown up with Deja affording her a loving and loyal following. The station is looking forward to her newly established collaboration and is happy to have her as part of the WBLS family. The revitalized afternoon format is a new direction for 107.5 WBLS providing an interesting element into the New York radio spectrum. Log onto WBLS.com for more information.


  1. A great Personality Like Jeff Foxx is Being Replaced By Some Comedian Disc Jockey Wanna be?
    This is why Radio these days is a joke.

  2. Earthquake is funny. I will be listening to see what he brings.
