Casey Bartholomew

Casey began his radio career at age 16.  He was driving around, and heard an ad for interns at 95.9 KEZY.  He was in the area, so just drove to the station and got the job.  From there he was also able to help out on their sister station, 1190 AM KORG.  From there Casey also did some work at 106.3 KYMS in Orange County, KMNY in Pomona, 105.5 KAVC in the Antelope Valley, and a number of other smaller stations in the area.

 Casey got his "big break" when he applied for a board-op position at KFI AM 640, in Los Angeles.  At the time, it was the #19 station in the market.  Over the next couple of years, he was part of a team that brought KFI to #1 in Los Angeles.  He worked on a number of different shows, including "The John and Ken Show," where he received national exposure, during the OJ Simpson trial, for his sixty-second commentary, "Casey's OJ Update."  It was also during this time that he began hosting a weekend talk show, which was actually the #1 weekend talk show, in Orange County, for a time. 

 From KFI, Casey went on to host successful talk shows on New Jersey 101.5 (the biggest FM talker in the country,) 97.1 WKRK in Detroit, News/Talk 580 WDBO in Orlando, The Big 550 KTRS in St. Louis, KIFR  in San Francisco, and WSC-FM in Charleston, SC. 

 Currently, Casey runs his own "fill-in" talk show service, out of his home studio.  He has been heard on some of the biggest stations in the country.  Such as: 

 WABC - New York City

WOR - New York City

WPHT - Philly

KOGO - San Diego

WLS - Chicago

KGO - San Francisco

WIOD - Miami

WMAL - Washington DC

KFYI - Phoenix

The nationally syndicated "Schnitt Show"

The nationally syndicated "Jon Gibson Show"

 ....and many more.

 Casey has also done extensive VO work, having been featured in commercials for Santa Anita Racetrack, Volvo, Subaru, Lackland Self Storage, Purina, and many others.  Casey even provided the voice of a DJ Starfish (Ryan Starfish) in the popular Broadway puppet show "Imagineocean."  He has also been featured in two best-selling books about the corrupt politics in New Jersey.

 Casey and his lovely wife, Brooke, have two children.  A girl named Spenser, and a boy named Max.  They are currently living happily ever after, surrounded by a few dogs and cats that they rescued from local shelters.
