Magic 107.3 KC Goes Local in the Mornings After 'Rick and Sasha Show' Syndicated Run

 The Morning Wake Up with Sean Tyler & Tasha Mac Weekdays 5am – 10am


While some of the former affiliates of The Rick and Sasha Show have either picked up The Rickey Smiley Morning Show, DeDe in the Morning, or The Russ Parr Morning Show; Magic 107.3 (KMJK-FM) in Kansas City will launch the local morning show "The Morning Wake Up" with Sean Tyler and Tasha Mack.

The Rick and Sasha Show from Westwood One will end their syndicated run on Friday, April 16. The Show has been in 'Best of..." mode since March 16. It was launched in January 2019. 

Here's more on Sean Tyler

In 1990, Sean Tyler realized his boyhood dream of becoming a radio disc jockey when Carter Broadcast Group hired the young and inexperienced Tyler as an intern. But it was not long before he was on the air and quickly becoming a rising star. He has now been in the business almost 25 years and has established himself as a well-known radio personality and in-demand product endorser.

There is more to Sean Tyler, too. Giving back is central to his philosophy of life. He has served on the board of directors for several high-profile Kansas City area non-profits, including the Good Samaritan Project (HIV/AIDS), the Bria T. Chism Foundation (leukemia) and the Boys and Girls Clubs Alumni Association (youth development), among others. In addition, over his professional career Tyler has contributed hundreds of hours of volunteer service to organizations including the American Heart Association, Community Blood Center, American Red Cross, and Operation Breakthrough among others.

He has been a hugely successful product endorser for local and national brands including:

Carsmart, Google Fiber, Slim 4 Life, Nike, Oreos, BlueCross BlueShield of KC, Twizzlers, Playboy Clothing, Harley Davidson to name a few.

Advertisers utilizing Sean’s consumer influence get more than just a “pitch man” but a reliable & trusted brand that was built from the ground up through hard work and passionate commitment. Now, most of his work in that area comes from client referrals. Sean is a genuine people person as well as a team player. He is very motivated and loves making clients positively stand out in the marketplace.

Here's more on Tasha Mack

A Kansas City, KS native, Tasha started taking acting classes in 2004 and was eventually referred to Exposure Models and Talent, Inc. and has been represented by them since 2005.

After several commercials, fashion shows and print ads, she landed a role on the Web Series “The UnReal Housewives of Kansas City”, even winning an Emmy for the webisode she was featured in. Her role as Rochae opened doors to more opportunities to be cast in short films and more commercial and non-broadcast work. In 2010, she added VoiceOver actor to her resume and for over ten years, has been a voice for Quintiles’ spots, extending her talents to the Los Angeles and Texas markets.

In 2018, she connected with The Black Steel Brothers and was asked to join “The Show Me Mix Show” on KKFI, as an on-air personality and co-host.

In the meantime, Tasha likes to bake, binge watch superhero movies and spend time drawing.
