Meet Kurt Colone, Detroit's Nicest Guy

KURT COLONE WAS A CLASS CLOWN GROWING UP. "Looking back, I always liked telling jokes and stories," he says. "I did the announcements at school, and I’d always add a little flavor."

Those skills served him well at Detroit’s biggest rock radio station, 101.1 WRIF, where he met Mike Staff more than 20 years ago. He learned the DJ business with Staff, and quickly realized he preferred private celebrations to bars and clubs. He joined Mike Staff Productions in 2001; today he’s the company’s director of business development and entertainment.
