Radio / Elvis Duran Morning Show

Go To

"Hello Lady!"

Elvis Duran and the Morning Show is a nationally syndicated radio program hosted by personality Elvis Duran, on the air since 1996. Originally based in New York City (on Z100), the show has since extended itself to a multitude of other markets, and is easily the most popular morning zoo format in the United States.

The show has seen co-hosts come and go in its sixteen years on the air, but the current cast is as follows:

  • Elvis Duran
  • Danielle Monaro
  • Skeery Jones (Executive producer)
  • Greg T the Frat Boy
  • Froggy
  • David Brody (Executive producer)
  • Carla Marie
  • "Web Girl" Kathleen
  • "Coaster Boy" Josh
  • Garrett
  • Scotty B
  • Bethany Watson


  • Carolina Bermudez
  • John Bell
  • TJ the DJ
  • Loren

Elvis Duran and the Morning Show provides examples of:

  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Played straight with and averted by Danielle and Carolina, who both love bad boy types, but ended up marrying the opposite.
  • Ascended Extra: T.J., Loren, Josh, Carla Marie, and Kathleen were all (initially, at least) supposed to have behind-the-scenes roles, but since became pretty well-integrated into the show in their own right. They even have individual profile pages on the show's website.
  • Career Versus Man: Averted, as Danielle, Carolina, and Kathleen are all married, while Loren, Carla Marie, and Bethany are all in stable/committed relationships.
  • Catchphrase:
    • "Hello, Lady!"
    • Additional ones: "That was my nickname in high school", "Wasn't she a stripper?", "That's STOOPID!" "Didn't (Punny Name phrase someone just said) use to do the weather for us?"
  • Clip Show: During holidays, vacation breaks, and on Saturday mornings, a "best of" collection of popular/recent conversations, phone taps, and celebrity interviews will be aired instead of a new episode.
  • Convenience Store Gift Shopping: Invoked with Greg T's bit "Walmart Treasure Hunt" where he wanders around a Walmart- blindfolded- guided by a contestant over the phone (go left/right this many paces), and wherever aisle he ends up, the contestant "wins" the item on the shelf in front of him.
  • Go-to Alias: For phone taps, most of the morning show cast members have their own character/alias that they often use:
    • Skeery has Mr Michael Oppenheimer and Rod Philips
    • Danielle has Mrs Moshgalopsis
    • T.J.'s were John Jingle and Officer Bradshaw
  • Have I Mentioned I Am Gay?: Elvis has to periodically remind listeners that he's gay, due to misconceptions by listeners or however else.
  • Song Parody: "The Panty Man", a popular one based on "The Candy Man", in addition to various others.
