In 1993 hip hop invaded morning radio for the first time. Yo MTV Raps hosts Ed Lover and Doctor Dre' were brought in by New York's hip hop station to man it's morning show and take it's conversion to hip hop full swing. Part of that ground breaking morning team, along with radio vet Lisa G, was Curt Flirt. Brought in to show prep and write comedy, Curt Flirt was a unique compliment to the radio trio. A veteran of many 'Yo' guest spots as impromptu characters, Curt Flirt was also fresh off a part in Ed and Dre's hip hop whodunit 'Who's The Man?'. Ed and Dre were no strangers to Curt's comedic mind as well as his passion for and knowledge of hip hop. The tri-state area soon found out about The Flirt. For years to come Curt Flirt adfded classic one liners as well as numerous character voices to the hottest morning show in the country. Years later as Ed and Dre departed the number one urban show to work the west coast, Curt Flirt stayed and lent a familiar voice and shameless comedy to the various teams that followed. While working weekend radio and hosting clubs Curt auditioned for and got another movie roll in Darnel Martin's critically acclaimed underground film "A Prison Song", which also starred Q-Tip, Fat Joe, and Mary J. Blige .
Growing up Curt used his comedic timing and life experiences to act in church and school productions, staying sharp and preparing for a career he didn't know he would enter.
In 2001 another hip hop station would enter the scene and stir things up. How could a station come to the major market in the country and challenge a ten year old monopoly? One thing the brain trust knew, New York would not take quickly to new jocks. They had to start with Ed and Dre! Icing on the cake was Lisa G, supervising producer Wayne Mayo, and of course Curt Flirt. Curt Flirt helped once again to make a ground breaking impact on New York radio at Power 1051.
Curt Flirt can now be heard on Power 105 on the weekends and is also lending his voice and writing talents to radio shows across the country.
Curt Flirt, one of the most sought after hosts in the city, is known for his candor and ability to improvise. You'll no doubt see Curt in a club near you very soon. "The People's Voice" is never far from any aspect of hip hop culture. Ten plus years into his radio career in the most competitive market in the country, as Power continues to break records in ratings growths, Curt Flirt looks steadily to grow and evolve with the industry. Siting his boundless talents, this should only be a matter of time.
