Ed Lover

Weekdays 5:30 - 10am

In case you’re not already familiar with the third most handsome man in America and now number one most handsome man in Chicago, I got my start in hip-hop as one of the original hosts of “Yo! MTV Raps!”, internationalizing and establishing the now iconic hip-hop genre around the globe. Following the exit of Yo!, I dived into the world of radio beginning at Hot 97 in New York from 1993 to 1997. After sowing my radio seeds in New York, I caught the west coast itch and moved to LA to host afternoons on 92-3 The Beat. Once that itch was scratched, I finessed my way back to New York in 2001 to reap what I sowed in the 90’s; I was an original on-air talent and disc jockey of the alternative hip-hop and R&B station - Power 105 - now home to “The Breakfast Club” and Angie Martinez. Once I ended my reign there in 2010, Backspin on SiriusXM satellite radio was my home until 2016, when I decided to conquer the airwaves across the nation with my syndicated morning show, “The Ed Lover Show with Monie Love,” based out of Atlanta, Georgia.

And now - here I am today in the Windy City. Catch me weekdays from 6:00AM-10:00AM on The New 104.3 JAMS: Chicago’s #1 for Throwbacks
