Radio History

Cornell got into radio back in 1992 when he became a Hip Hop DJ (DJ Prophe-C) on 98.5 WPTS. He was known for playing music from 1am to 6am, following the legendary DJ Blakk Steel. He was also known in his city for emceeing numerous Hip Hop concerts.

Cornell knew that by training ex-offenders we would develop a movement of people who are informed and empowered about criminal justice. He also knew that by bringing music into the mix, he would be able to inform people that normally would not be interested in the issue.
