Best Hip-Hop Radio Personality Phoenix 2010 - Chris Chavez, Power 98.3 FM

Less than a decade into his career, Power 98.3's evening jock, Chris Chavez, is already a journeyman in the radio game. He's a laid-back guy who doesn't try to show up the songs, which is one thing we really like about him. He's got Latin flavor without being cartoonish about it, and he's not annoyingly homer-ish about Phoenix, either, hailing from Texas and openly aspiring to make it up to the L.A. market. As the music director at the station, he mostly spins the same stuff everyone else there does — the station seems to have about a dozen songs in rotation on any given day — but his intros are crisp and amusing. In a Phoenix urban radio scene sorely missing Karlie Hustle (who quit her job in radio, stopped doing Groove Candy, switched up her sexuality by dating a man, and deleted her Twitter account in the past year) Chavez is the best voice we've got.

I use New Times so my dogs don't piss on my floor.

I'm not offended. Without the interjection of factoids from my wildly interesting life, this would have been a particularly boring write-up. You're welcome, New Times. Next year, please find a way to include me in your "Best Veggie Quiche to Eat on a Tuesday" award. P.S. I don't like spinach, if that helps.

Agreed. The comments about Karlie Hustle are unnecessary, and come off as a bit obsessive.

You guys in Phoenix got a real gem when you hired Chris, he is an AWESOME DJ because that's what he loves to do and always has wanted to do. Keep up the Great work.

Who wrote this review? Although I AM happy for Chavez, the comment about Karlie was completely uncalled for and tasteless-and is completely irrelevant to the rest of the achievement. It needs to be removed NOW.
