You might have heard of him referred to as 6’5″, but Sam Sirmons is one of the youngest in the industry but has made his way to becoming a mover and shaker. From Atlanta, GA to Palm Springs, CA, Sirmons has made himself a staple in radio broadcasting. Sirmons who proudly represents the Midwest, by way of Indiana, is a graduate of Kokomo High School. Much like his mentors, Ryan Cameron & Greg Street, Sirmons stayed on the grind and has always strived to take his craft to the next level. It’s his hustle, “never say never” mentality that has brought him this far and will continue take him even further. During his undergrad at Ball State University, Sam was omnipresent with hosting several events and apart of several organizations. Everything changed when someone told him to give the campus radio station, WCRD 91.3 FM, a shot. From his initial show going from one hour on Friday afternoons to a three-hour block on Thursday nights, which went down as one of the most successful & controversial shows to ever hit the station. Upon graduation, Sam was standing at a crossroads, either stay at home and start job hunting with a degree or take an internship with V103Atlanta. He packed his life up and headed to the South where he interned under Greg Street and sat in with Ryan Cameron in the afternoons. After finishing his internship, he was hired as a board operator for WAOK. After earning the trust of several colleagues on the staff, including Cameron, he was asked to assist in the inception of The Ryan Cameron Morning Show on V103Atlanta. The versatility he possesses didn't just stop on the morning show. He’s successfully produced several broadcasts from concerts, community events, including the NCAA Final Four. Sirmons has also been the producer for personalities such as Ramona DeBreaux, Big Tigger, Greg Street, & Roland Martin. In the summer of 2016, Sirmons made his way to Palm Springs, CA where he was the night personality for U-92.7. For three consecutive ratings books, he was the #1-night show personality, as well as the highest rated personality in his cluster. Recently, Sirmons was recognized by Radio Ink Magazine as a member of the Class of 2020 "Future African-American Leaders in Radio." Currently, Sam Sirmons produces Ryan Cameron Uncensored on Majic 107.5/97.5 in Atlanta from 3-7 PM, as well as a weekend show on Majic 107.5/97.5 Sunday afternoons from 2-6 PM. Never seeing the ceiling, he's looking forward to more success & consistent #1's.
