Loper and Smitty's Bio
Loper and Smitty's old Bio


Loper's Bio:


While most junior high school kids were out trying to find themselves, Jeremy Loper was on the street trying to find a way into local radio and he did. At the age of 13 Jeremy landed an internship at a West Palm Beach talk radio station where he learned the ropes by eventually taking on the role of producer.

Three years later at while attending High School at Greenacres Christian Academy he managed twice to capture the A.C.E. Junior Radio Broadcaster title for the state of Florida. In his senior year he competed internationally and finished sixth in the world.

In 1996 Jeremy took his talents to the Buzz where he initially joined the station as an intern before earning a part-time shift on the weekends. Less than a year later he earned a full time position doing overnights. By 1999, his drive and passion for the Buzz and the music landed him a prime-time shift doing nights. With a loyal following and superior ratings Jeremy was moved into the afternoon drive slot and named music director in early 2000. He remained there until he left in the fall of 2002 to pursue other opportunities out of state. With stops in Miami, West Virginia, Salt Lake City Utah, Ocean City, Maryland and Albany, New York along the way, Jeremy honed his skills and evolved from a superior afternoon talent into a top rated morning show host where he consistently finished first in his target ratings demographic.

Now after five years Jeremy Loper returns to the Buzz this time in morning drive with partner Smitty, formerly Whiskerbiscuit of the Morning Buzz with Mark Summers, at his side. Since teaming up two years ago Smitty and Loper have become one of the most sought after shows in rock radio today.


Smitty's Bio:
Born in Long Island New York, Smitty came to Florida with his family at the age of five and spent the majority of his life here in the West Palm Beach area. Educated privately at Jupiter Christian Academy until 6th grade, he then entered The Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts and remained there throughout high school.

After a brief stint at Palm Beach Community College, Smitty realized that radio was the career path that he would follow. It was then that he left P.B.C.C. and enrolled in the Connecticut School of Broadcasting. During his time there he began an internship with the Buzz. He was assigned to the morning show under the guidance of then Morning Buzz host Mark Summers who aptly named him “Whisker Biscuit” for his scraggly hair and thin build. Whether it was walking into local businesses armed with a bullhorn, climbing into the cars of unwitting listeners or stopping people on the street in the name of local morning radio, he did it well and people knew him.

Although he was happy with being a part of the morning show, Smitty wanted more and in the fall of 2001 he was hired and given a weekend shift on the Buzz. From 2003, until he left to join Jeremy Loper in Maryland in 2005, he hosted Buzz Light on a regular basis. Because of his extensive knowledge of the music and the artists and his passion for both he was without a doubt the most popular weekend jock on the Buzz and had a loyal following of listeners who were sad to see him leave.

Smitty is also a very accomplished musician and as a singer, songwriter and guitarist. He is best known in the local music scene as the founder of the local band, “Gimp” which appeared at numerous Buzz Bake Sale concerts.
Smitty lives in downtown West Palm Beach and is currently single. He can often be found hanging out at concerts and coffee houses and hopes to reform his band and once again perform at local venues.

I was born May 15th 1980 in Portsmouth, Ohio.. I know very exciting right? My dad got a gig in West Palm Beach, Florida when I was 4, so we moved. I grew up in a town called Lake Worth outside of West Palm Beach. I got into radio in 1993 and have been addicted ever since…

She has been instrumental in my career and life since I met her.

On July 7th 2003 my life changed.. Jayden was born. I will never forget the day I met my son for the first time. I had a very different life up to that point, but was glad to put it all behind me for my new role in life as a father. Kaylee came in May of 2005 and really completed our family. I also have two awesome step-children Brandon and Sydney. The man upstairs has really made this guy from West Palm Beach, Florida one of the luckiest men on earth.

We have been doing the “Rexx and Smitty thang“ since 2005. It’s so great to work with my best friend everyday and make people all over the Capitol Region laugh and feel passionate about Fly 92.3.

Oooo I like hearing about Captain Awesome.

Captain Awesome. . . attending High School at Greenacres Christian Academy
Smitty . . . Educated privately at Jupiter Christian Academy
Captain Awesome consistently finished first in his target ratings demographic.
Does this sound really vaguely and awkwardly written to anyone else?

Is there any doubt that these fine upstanding gentlemen will be number one soon? If I were satellite radio, I would be shaking in my boots. There are geniuses running terrrestrial radio these days. How can anybody possibly compete with Loper and Smitty? Kiss XM and Sirius goodbye.

Smitty should be reading open-mic poetry and getting booed by fifteen-year-old girls with binders full of sonnets about elves fucking.

Loper should get Lopequired Immuno-Deficiency Syndrome and catch frog pneumonia or whatever kills people with LIDS.
