Elvis Duran and The 105.5 Morning Show

Elvis Duran considers himself the host of the party on his national radio show, which is the most-listened-to Top 40 morning show in the U.S. that consistently ranks #1 across multiple demographics and top markets. Broadcasting live from New York's Z100, Duran and his on-air crew entertain listeners with up-to-the-minute entertainment and pop culture news, celebrity guests, hit songs, and regular features such as Entertainment News, What's Trending, and the ever-popular prank Phone Taps.

Duran's radio career has spanned 30 years and has included both host and program director duties at Philadelphia's WIOQ and Austin's KBTS, as well as stints at Z-93 in Atlanta and KRBE Houston. He began hosting his daily radio show on New York's Z100 in April 1996. Since then, the show has enjoyed much success resulting in a national deal in March 2009 with the country's leading radio syndication company, Premiere Networks, a subsidiary of Clear Channel Media and Entertainment. Elvis Duran and the Morning Show added more than 30 stations in the first year, and today, the program can be heard in nearly 80 markets, including Philadelphia, Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, St. Louis, Cleveland, Austin, Milwaukee, Norfolk, Jacksonville, Richmond, Rochester, Dayton, Des Moines, Spokane and Wichita. Elvis Duran and the Morning Show consistently ranks No. 1 across multiple demographics and top markets, and attracts an audience of 5.5 million weekly listeners. The show also airs on iHeartRadio.com, the iHeartRadio mobile app, and The Elvis Duran Channel on www.ElvisDuran.com.

In 2012, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment signed Duran to a new long-term deal. He continues hosting his hit syndicated show while expanding his role in such areas as talent and programming development, as well as serving as a spokesperson for the company.

In addition to his successful radio show, Duran launched his own entertainment company in 2007 'The Elvis Duran Group (EDG).' Owned by Duran and talent agent David Katz, formerly of Don Buchwald and Associates, the company focuses on creating content for radio, television, broadband, internet, theater and film. EDG's first foray into television resulted in a five episode deal that aired on Spike TV in 2010. The show, Phowned, was an iteration of the radio show's famous Phone Taps segment.

The radio industry has honored Duran and his program with several awards and nominations such as Best Morning Show by New York's Achievement in Radio Awards, Personality of the Year by the Radio Music Awards, Best Personality by Radio & Records, Best Top 40 Disc Jockey nomination by Billboard Magazine Radio, and Best Major Market Top 40 Air Personality by Billboard/Airplay Monitor. The National Association of Broadcasters nominated Elvis Duran for the 2012 NAB Marconi Award for Network/Syndicated Personality of the Year. Additionally, Duran served as an event chair for the GLAAD Manhattan Awards in 2012, where he was also honored for his contributions to the community.

Duran is a committed philanthropist. He's the co-chair of Rosie's Theater Kids, an organization that brings enrichment through theater and the arts to underprivileged Manhattan children. With a soft spot for animals, he serves on the board of directors for Rock & Rawhide, a non-profit organization that aims to increase adoptions while also providing a quieter, stress-free life for animals surrendered to shelters. Duran also contributes to the Staten Island Zoo's annual endowment and Robin Hood, which fights poverty in New York City.

The maitre'd of the mornings loves traveling the world and enjoys great movies, books, wines and restaurants. He's also hooked on such TV shows as American Horror Story, Orange is the New Black, and Celebrity Apprentice. Easily accessible, Duran regularly chats with fans on Facebook and Twitter.
