Miss Kimmy

NAME: Kimmy B.

ALIASES: Miss Kimmy, Kimmy Kim, BBK, and my Favorite “Lady Hennessy”

Miss Kimmy began her career in the radio game 7 years ago when she landed a coveted internship with Miami’s most historic station, 99Jamz/WEDR.  With a lot of hard work, persistence, and dedication, Kimmy has been able to grow that internship with 99Jamz into a full blown radio career, and has become an integral part of morning radio as the local co-host of the Rickey Smiley Morning Show in Miami.  Her dynamic personality, ability to engage and interact with on-air guests, multi-cultural background, and strong ties to the South Florida community have helped her captivate her listeners and solidify her place on the Miami Air-Waves and in this highly competitive business.

When she’s not on-air you can find Miss Kimmy hanging out with her friends at any of Miami’ hottest “HOT” spots, enjoying a great meal, soaking up the South Florida sun, attending a ‘Canes, ‘Fins, Heat, or Marlins game, or giving back to the community.  She’s a world traveler, a lover of the arts, a PASSIONATE sports fan, a Foodie, an avid reader (books are food for the mind the way music is food for the soul), and most importantly a person who embraces opportunity and challenges alike.  She definitely lives her life to the fullest!

In Kimmy’s own words, “Radio is a Passion NOT a Job”, and it’s that passion that continues to drive her and push her to grow her craft, hone her skills, and strive for greatness.  Her vivacious and outgoing personality, and genuine interest in people and new things make her accessible, and she prides herself on the fact that she can talk to anyone about anything, anytime, and anywhere.  You can check Miss Kimmy out weekday mornings from 6-10am and on-line at WEDR.com heading up 99Jamz “Live On-Line” which brings you the latest in entertainment news, exclusive interviews, coverage of local events, and more.  When she’s not on-air, you can find her in the streets, trying to make a difference, dedicating time to mentoring our kids and giving back to the community, and of course cheering on local high-school football teams.  She’s also part of the GenerationNexxt Youth Sports Network which airs on NBC6, adding Sports Reporter and TV host to her resume.  And, while Kimmy says there are no limits when it comes to where her Dreams will take her, one thing is certain…Radio will always be her 1st love!!

His show called The Afternoon Jump-Off has dominated in the ratings for years. Known for his unique vocal quality and engaging personality, Lorenzo loves is audience.

The building a huge fan base led to a successful ten-year stint as a travel ambassador to Jamaica. Lorenzo invited friends to join his travel group in the lap of luxury for fun in Jamaica for his Annual Birthday Bash.  In addition, a recent graduate of Miami Film School, Thomas has also performed a great deal in the local theater circuit, as well as directing and acting in his own self produced film entitled Perfect Peace and his preparation for future film projects.

Publications have also recognized him as Urban Network Magazines Radio Air Personality of the Year and Radio Facts Magazine named him Jock of the Millennium. Over the years Lorenzo has demonstrated another secret to the success of the "Ice Tea" machine is to remain humble, but yet and still posses the ability to self promote effectively through events and self-organized parties, radio promotions, television and commercial appearances, stand-up performances, and additional business ventures throughout each and every regional he has worked through out his career.  The result has made Lorenzo “Ice-Tea” Thomas one of the most recognized air personalities in an industry that hardly ever puts a face to the voice. "Radio allows me not only to perform, but it also challenges me to discover new ways to entertain because the listeners can't see me

 

 

Lorenzo acting resume includes such blockbuster hits as Enemy of State, Liberty Heights, and Forces of Nature; Lorenzo has also made a place for himself in the acting world. Some local and national cable viewers may have even recognized Thomas in the Discovery channel reenactment show, FBI Files, The Detective series and HBO's Autopsy.

Lorenzo's knack for self-promotion made him a prominent figure with social elite in each market he has succeeded. With a talent for predicting trends and forecasting foibles, Thomas also became a local designer with a web-based fashion collection well suited for the "It Girl". The Lorenzo Collection's debut in January 2002 gave the stylish woman yet another option for their ever-expanding wardrobe.  

Thomas is starting up The Lorenzo Foundation for Women, Sports, and Children (WSC) is a private, non-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the health and well being of single mothers and their children. Recognizing the growing demands on single mothers, WSC provides social support networks to help with home maintenance, information referral via our website and hotline, and opportunities for children to attend enrichment programs and summer activity camps.

It’s hard to imagine receiving the love that Thomas has received and not being a native, but in a city that has been the home of so many greats, the Miami audience is no stranger to talent, making Thomas an obvious candidate for the embrace this competitive market, and he maintains #1 status.
