    Keynote

    Hailing from Atlanta and Los Angeles by way of Dallas, Texas, Keynote is an emcee, actor, entertainer, and host. A quick look at his resume as well as his passport, shows Keynote to be more than a product of his bicoastal nature—think international… think locally and globally. He is one third of underground hip-hop darlings The Bodega Brovas whose exploits and exports have seen their fanbase blossom overseas while still maintaining a firm stake in their stateside roots. In a crowded radio industry mix of call letters and formats, Keynote pushed against the grain and carved out a career for himself as a radio personality and deejay for Dallas/Ft. Worth’s ratings juggernaut 97.9 The Beat, a staple for Radio-One Communications and the 5th largest radio market in the U.S. Keynote managed to maintain the number one rated show in Dallas, for a span of 11 years. This landed him numerous guest TV appearances both nationally and locally. Keynote has now made his return to Dallas on 97.9 The Beat, and is once again conquering the airwaves. In any capacity, in any situation, in any location, Keynote connotes the very thing his name implies—significance and definition.
