Russ Parr has announced that his morning show, The Russ Parr Morning Show, has come to an end after nearly 30 years on the air. He has been in the DC area since 1996, when he joined WKYS.

His career has evolved from a stand-up comedian to recording artist to a top-rated, nationally-syndicated radio host, heard weekdays by 3.2 million listeners in 25 cities across America and now…to independent filmmaker.

Per Majic 102.3, “He’s opened for the legendary comedienne Joan Rivers and avoided bombing on stage, thanks to the laughter of friends and family. Russ credits his work as a comedian for developing his comedic timing as well as the many character voices – such as Magic Man, Burner, Mickey Mouse, Ali, and Bobby Jimmy – that have led to his success in radio.

Russ was offered the position as the morning show host at 93.9 WKYS in Washington, DC in 1996 and two years later, the nationally-syndicated Russ Parr Morning Show was born and has been syndicated for over two decades.” Russ Parr shared the following:

“Farewell, but Not Goodbye – The Russ Parr Morning Show: As we conclude the remarkable journey of the Russ Parr Morning Show, a journey that spanned over 27 years, we’re overwhelmed with gratitude and anticipation. These years have been filled with mornings of laughter, engaging conversations, and moments that will forever be etched in our memories. We extend our deepest thanks to Cathy Hughes, Alfred Liggins, and the entire team at Urban 1 for the extraordinary opportunity to be a part of your airwaves. This journey has been nothing less than phenomenal.

I’m thrilled to announce that I will continue to focus on writing and directing films, another passion of mine. Click Russ Parr Movies. To find out if you missed any of my previous productions, click on Russ Parr’s Movies above.
