Head to the gym in your scrunchie, stirrup pants, and Reebok Pumps this week to get you in the mood for our new FIT Radio DJ, CO1, and his new station, ‘Back in the Day!’ Featuring artists like Salt n Peppa, Beastie Boys, Madonna, Boyz II Men, Run DMC and more. These mixes will have you saying things, like “It’s the bomb!” and “Cool beans!” again in no time. CO-1’s long history of DJing makes him a perfect match for FIT Radio with all of the best 80’s & 90’s classics blended to take you ‘back in the day!’
DJ CO1 started his mixing career in Orange County, California back in 1996. In 2000, he partnered with DJ Drew from 102.7 KIIS FM (L.A.) and collaborated to produce multitrack mixes featured on-air. A few years later, KWNZ Program Director Eddie GO! brought DJ CO1 to the Reno market to debut on Z 93.7 as a “Friday Night Live” mixer and later contributing to the “Saturday Night Street Party.” After a couple of years in Reno, DJ CO1 relocated and now performs in the Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Orange County areas. You can currently catch him on-air at Power 106 in Albuquerque, NM and on 98.5 KLUC in Las Vegas, NV. As Mixshow Coordinator atKLUC, DJ CO1 has played an essential role in music selection, maintaining mixshow consistency and contributing to station events. His on-air schedule is filled with a non-stop agenda performing seven days a week on #1 rated mix shows.
The history behind the name, people ask…”What does DJ CO-1 stand for?” – well, it is the acronym for deputy juvenile corrections officer 1. In his previous life, CO-1 worked and volunteered for multiple law enforcement agencies. Before his early retirement, a colleague suggested, “hey, if you keep djing and do radio you should keep the officer title since it has the word DJ in it…” so he did.

FIT Radio: going global?! You betcha, and we are thrilled to see a mention in London’s Metro. This is just the beginning. Today, London. Tomorrow, who knows, it could be Japan!
Our FIT Radio office has been a beehive this last week. With the release of our mobile apps into the Apple App Store and Android Marketplace, we have all been running around like crazy trying to make sure everything is perfect. The app is already gaining press and recognition, and the number of users is growing by the minute! We have received a lot of great feedback, and we are so excited to hear how many users are already in love with their new favorite app, FIT Radio.
The next step: Celebration! Oh ya, and a lot of hard work, of course.
With a relaxed but busy feel in the new Social Study office, FIT Radio is off to a great start. A lot of important changes have been made in the past couple of weeks and we have all been working diligently together to get FIT Radio ready for business. With this process being a team work effort, we believe that any business venture that we can experience together strengthens not only the team itself, but FIT Radio as well! The LAUNCH Conference in San Francisco went well (great feedback and contacts were bountiful!) and the team came back even more pumped for the official FIT Radio launch. We’re going to keep this ball rolling! Pictures of the team hard at work coming soon…
Amp Your Workout

Have you ever been to the gym, while in the midst of one of your longest runs, out of nowhere, a down tempo Michael Buble song begins playing from your earbuds? You struggle to switch to a more upbeat song on your mp3 player and suddenly, not only have you lost your footing, but your motivation as well. The momentum you had for the last 8 mile haul is completely tarnished. FIT Radio creates a solution to this unfortunate issue by providing listeners with nonstop, high energy, DJ engineered music.
