Craig Blac

 

Craig Blac first got his start in Broadcasting at WPGC 95.5 in D.C. where he was the overnight personality and a street team member, all while working towards a B.A. in Journalism at Bowie State University. He worked alongside two popular D.C. jocks, Tigger of BET’s “Rap City,” and the legendary Donnie Simpson. Blac later became the Assistant Promotions Director/Street Team Director/Weekend On-air Personality with a Sunday night go-go show at D.C.’s WKYS-FM 93.9. Go-go music’s greatest came through to sit in on Blac’s show, including the Chocolate City’s “godfather of go-go,” Chuck Brown.

In June 2000, Craig Blac made the move to St. Louis where he was an On-air Personality at the “Blazin’ Hip-Hop and R&B” station WFUN-FM Q95.5 in the 6 pm to 10 pm slot.  The show was aptly titled “The Blac Out” Craig immediately gained a great following after inviting local hip-hop artists to shine on the mic live on the “St. Louis Love” segment. He also interviewed various guests including St. Louis’ own Nelly and the St. Lunatics.

Craig put his stamp on his adopted hometown of St. Louis. Through his work in radio and more recently his Community Cuts for Kids project (#CCFK), Community Cuts was first launched as Blac’s way to give back to the community after becoming a hugely popular as an On-air Personality at WFUN-FM’s Q95.5.

Over the years Community Cuts has not only provided haircuts to boys and hairstyles for girls, but also school supplies and health screenings so that the area youth are set for their first day of class. Craig Blac’s Community Cuts for Kids kicks off its 17th Year in August 2017.

In June 2012 Craig moved back to his hometown of Washington, DC and continued his yearly program Community Cuts for Kids in St Louis, Mo. In December 2016 he returned to his Broadcasting roots at WPGC and is currently working toward launching the 1st Annual Community Cuts for Kids in the DC, Maryland & Virginia (The DMV) with the help of CBS Broadcasting/WPGC.
