Join Deadair Dennis Maler as he dives into the comedic universe with Justin Schlegel, the dynamic co-host of Baltimore's top rock morning show, Justin, Scott & Spiegel. From goofy skateboarding escapades in Waldorf, MD to becoming a beloved voice on the airwaves ๐ŸŽ™๏ธ, Schlegel's journey is a comedy odyssey you won't want to miss.

Discover how Schlegel's passion for entertainment led him from the Broadcasting Institute of Maryland to the spotlight of comedy clubs across the nation. With his razor-sharp wit and magnetic stage presence, he quickly became a standout, earning recognition at renowned comedy festivals along the way. ๐ŸŽค๐Ÿ˜„

But fate had a different plan for Schlegel when he caught the attention of 98 Rock hosts Kirk McEwen and Mickey Cucchiella. This unexpected encounter ignited a new chapter in his career, bringing him back to his broadcasting roots and paving the way for his own late-night program and ultimately, the coveted morning host spot. ๐ŸŽง๐ŸŒŸ

The Baltimore community knows Justin Schlegelโ€™s voice very well, given heโ€™s co-hosted the popular morning radio program, Justin, Scott & Spiegel, since the showโ€™s inception in 2013. Viewers can tune in at 98 Rock to hear Schlegel from 5:30 in the morning to 10 AM.

As a natural entertainer, Schlegel first explored the radio industry when he got into the Broadcasting Institute of Maryland. He was often at the top of his class and tutored other students, so itโ€™s no surprise that upon completion of his studies, he was hired for stations WYCR and WHVR to perform board operation duties. Since he didnโ€™t align with the company, after five years, he quit his job and went to a bar, where he found himself performing standup comedy. Suddenly, he performed 15 shows a month, hired an agent, was touring nationally, and even made it into the prestigious comedy festival, Just For Laughs, in Montreal.

One night, he was approached after a comedy set by 98 Rock hosts, Kirk McEwen and Mickey Cucchiella, and they asked him to feature on their show. He impressed the station, returned to his broadcasting roots, and spent years recurring all over 98 Rock before he was offered his own late night program: The Justin Schlegel Fiasco. Eventually, he was moved up to afternoons, and then he received the coveted spot as morning host.
