Ken Johnson Director of Urban Programming for Clear Channel Radio in Philadelphia has announced Cappuchino (Cheryl Haygen) will join Power 99 fm as the station’s new midday personality. Johnson says, ” Philadelphia is going to love her upbeat personality and passionate love of music.” Cappuchino says, “It’s been my dream to be a part of Power 99 fm. It’s a nationally respected ground breaking urban station and I can’t wait to reach out and be very much a part of the community.”
Born and raised in Miami, Cappuchino (Cheryl Hayden) decided radio would be her joy when she toured Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, Florida. By her second semester at FAMU, the half-Thai, half-Black beauty was given the moniker Cappuchino (because of the hue of her skin).
She also began training other students and served as a college record representative for Atlantic Records. Cappuchino received her B.S. degree in newspaper journalism and decided to stick with radio. She spent the last 7 years at KMJJ in Shreveport LA as the Assistant Program Director and Midday Host and prior Capp was one of the chosen few to manage her college radio station and work in commercial radio at WHBX in Tallahassee FL.
Cappuchino is a learner, a speaker, a mom, wife and a social butterfly and will tell you what’s on her mind and she enjoys music!
Cappuchino’s appointment is effective January 15, 2012.
