Local boy Deakon spent his mischievous adolescence growing up in the Four Corners before moving to central Arizona and later Dallas/Fort Worth. In 2008 he began his on-air banter on our sister station 92.5 KRWN FM. In 2010 he went searching for greater things in the big apple studying film and television at the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts with many professors actively acting in or directing films. You may recognize Deakon’s elbow or forehead from ‘The Dark Knight Rises’. After a little more than 4 years in the big city Deakon realized there’s no job like radio. He returned to KRWN FM and Pirate Radio before transferring to Durango where things are sure to get exciting as he and Jessi Kay can’t wait to start all of their absurd antics.
Jessi Kay was born right here in beautiful Durango, Colorado. Often referred to as the “original Durango gangster,” she spent her childhood running the streets of this scenic mountain town. She was a Durango high school graduate and Fort Lewis College alumni where she got her radio start at KDUR. She later began working for American General Media, as an on air personality on 99x, and now is your morning co host for The Breakfast Club on 92.9 The Point. She has a beautiful daughter who also happens to be a genius. She enjoys being a dance mom, shooting the occasional gun, a stiff cocktail on a sunny patio, golf, blocking people on Facebook, hard core Gangster rap and writing bios in the third person.
