Dwight Stone, aka D. Stone was born in Toronto, Canada and now residing in Birmingham, AL is a radio personality with a unique love for the business. His love affair with radio started in high school. His dream of a career in radio became a reality after his first year in Oakwood College in Huntsville, Alabama. From there he landed positions at 3 commercial radio stations. D.Stone is still an on-air personality receiving #1 ratings for his primetime radio show on 95.7 JAMZ in Birmingham, Alabama. His on-air antics like “D.Stone Karaoke”, experience in celebrities interviews, and fearlessness while live on location make listeners unaware on what he may do next.
More than a radio personality, Hypeman D.Stone is a community servant. He volunteers with several community groups and serves as a youth DJ at his church – Church of The Highlands in Birmingham, AL. His passion for ministry shifted his focus from local radio to national syndication. Along with his co-host Willie Moore Jr, D.Stone produces “The Praise Mixdown” – a premiere syndicated gospel mix show – now airing in over 15 markets. Although music will always remain Dwight’s first love, his passion and commitment to make a difference in his community is truly what drives him.
