A native of Memphis, Myron began his broadcast career in 1994 at the age of 20 years old. He had never been on the air a day in his life until he took the advice of a popular large market radio personality and went to the smallest station he could find and offered to work for free in exchange for the experience
His drive and enthusiasm not only got him a chance to gain the experience he needed, it also landed him his very first paying job on the radio at WSAO-AM, a small Gospel radio station in Senatobia, Mississippi. Less than a year later he landed his second position in radio, playing Gospel during the week in Senatobia and then migrating to Holly Springs, Mississippi where he played R&B at WKRA-FM on the weekends.
In 1995, this golden opportunity eventually prepared him to land his first large market radio position at legendary Gospel station WLOK-AM in Memphis. While creating a legacy in radio he also eventually added TV to his background securing his first TV opportunity at TBN affiliate WBUY-TV before eventually moving on to local PBS affiliate WKNO-TV, ABC-24, UPN-30 and then on to WHBQ-Fox 13.
On January 8th, 2008, his career came full circle when he returned to full-time radio and opened the microphone for the very first time at Memphis radio station WRBO-FM. There he dominated the airwaves with “The Myron Mays Radio Show”, delivering a mix of Soul Classics and Todays R&B, peppered with entertainment news and his own brand of hilarious commentary
Four radio stations, five television stations and over 23 years later, he can currently be heard each Thursday night from 7-9pm Central hosting the appropriately titled “What’s Happening Myron Radio Show” delivering the 411 as only he can with his brand of “Entertainment, Information & Enlightenment”
In addition to broadcasting, Myron is also an entertainment writer for the New Tri-State Defender Newspaper. His weekly column, “What’s Happening Myron,” gives fans the opportunity to delve a little further into his psyche as he shares his perspective on entertainment and pop culture and keeps the public informed as to “what’s happening” around town. He can be seen regularly on WREG News Channel 3’s Live at 9. His weekly electronic publication, “The What’s Happening Report” reaches nearly 20,000 people in the Memphis Metro area
