“The Bootleg Kev Show” Returns to REAL 92.3 Replacing Tino Cochino

iHeartMedia Los Angeles’ REAL 92.3 announced today that “The Bootleg Kev Show” will air on the station weekdays from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., effective Thursday, August 19. Bootleg Kev is one of hip hop’s most notable DJs, and his show will give Los Angeles listeners their nightly fix of hip hop lifestyle, music, fashion, history, culture, community and more.

Bootleg Kev, originally from Phoenix, Arizona, has been in radio for over 15 years with stops in Las Vegas, Tampa, Phoenix, and previously at REAL 92.3 in LA. In addition to being one of the biggest hip-hop DJs in the country, he loves to play video games, travel, geek out on technology, and watch sports– all things that make him a relatable personality to his audience. Bootleg Kev lives and breathes hip hop and has spent his career building relationships with the “who’s who” of the format.

“We are really excited to welcome Bootleg Kev back on our airwaves in support of his new syndicated venture,” said Doc Wynter, President of Hip Hop and R&B Programming Strategy for iHeartMedia. “Kev left an indelible mark in the minds of hip hop fans in Los Angeles. I know they’ll be happy to hear him on the air again on REAL 92.3.”

“At the beginning of the year, I bet on myself heavy and launched my own syndicated show with United Stations. Right away, getting back on the #1 hip hop station in Los Angeles was my goal,” said Bootleg Kev. “With the help & guidance of Brian Samson, Tim Richards and my United Stations team, we are here and back on at REAL 92.3! I want to thank Doc Wynter, DJ A-Oh and the wonderful team at REAL 92.3 for always having my back. I’m very excited to grace the Los Angeles airwaves again every night alongside my team: Pacoima’s finest James Andre Jefferson Jr., DJ Sam I Am and the best producer in the game Nico Blitz!”

“It has been a great year working on this show with Kev and his team,” said Stefan Jones, Senior Vice President of Content/Affiliation for United Stations. “It is always fun when you know you have something special. Huge thanks to Doc Wynter, A-Oh and John Peake for putting this together. And, of course, the stellar people at USRN — notably, Andy Denemark, Greg Janoff, Charlie Colombo and Nick Verbitsky.”

“The Bootleg Kev Show” launched in April through United Stations Radio Networks, and is currently heard in Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Oxnard/Ventura, Las Vegas, Orlando and now Los Angeles.
