Alan DuPriest started his radio career in High School as an after school job for gas money and because his mother wanted him out of the house as much as possible. His life experience was summed up by a recent quote from Alan, who said, “I was born at a very early age. I worked through that and, with counseling, was able to turn that into a positive event in my life”. His favorite color is “brick” and his hobbies include camping on his back porch and collecting thumb tacks.
You can join Alan on Z-94 weekdays from 6AM – 10AM and you will hear his unique perspective on just about any subject you want to bring up. That doesn’t mean you will understand him but please give him the benefit of the doubt.
Alan landed his first radio job at age 15, and made waves breaking Texas music at 99.5 The Wolf in Dallas, helping the station earn the designation as the #1 country station in America at the time. He has received numerous national awards including “DJ of the Year” from Country Radio Broadcasters, the Academy of Country Music’s 2010 and 2013 “National On-Air Personality of the Year” and Radio and Records “Music Director of the Year” five times, while Billboard magazine and the Radio Music Awards honored him with the annual title as well.
