What's up, I'm Syke! I was born and raised right here on the Island that is Long and when you can play the game, You know you're from Long Island when/if and you are still going after 2 hours, you know you belong. I spent quite an amount of years (hint: more than 4, less than 6) at Hofstra University studying Audio/Radio Broadcast…and yes, I eventually graduated. How? Well, I’m not sure.

Finally, I am with Long Island’s Number 1 Hit Music Station and I could not be any happier! I grew up listening to BLI and there is nothing cooler than working here, trust me. I have the greatest job in the world! Seeing as how I have gone on long enough I’ll wrap it up but don’t forget to hang out with me every Monday through Friday 7p-Midnight! Don’t be shy to call up and request a song, ask a question, or just to say hi….I love talking to and meeting new people!
