Charles Hyatt II
Charles Hyatt Jr. Has spent his life thinking about one thing, people. He has spent that life trying to make sure that people are able to reach their highest potential at every chance available. Weather working with local disk jockey in DC/MD to create the areas number one sound system “Delta Force” or inspiring children and young adults to think and act on making the best out of life, he has always put his energy in enhancing others lives.
While attending Lincoln University in Pennsylvania Charles helped pioneer the first all reggae radio program on the university’s radio station and maintained it until he graduated. His radio experience stems from Pennsylvania’s WLIU 88.7 FM to DC’s WMET 1160AM. Both these shows showcased the Caribbean culture in colorfully positive ways which intrigued many who had it as the only way to know the region.
In 2003 Charles teamed with DJ Baby Ace to launch Baby Ace Radio, an internet based radio station built on the vibes of Dancehall, Hip Hop, and R&B. With remixing, juggling sessions, and interviews of the industry’s stalwarts, Charles, or “SKS” as he is known by listeners, had the main goal of exposing the world to the new and ‘Gold’ sounds of Jamaica. His staple program while on Baby Ace Radio was “Upcoming Artists” where he showcased the talents of young artists in order to get them airplay and a chance to become a household name.
He has also tried his hand at many other professions such as comedian, counselor, actor, salesman, IT professional, janitor, and non-profit owner, to name a few. He decided to stick with IT and has gained a Masters of Science in Management Information Systems, which has, in over 20 years, fostered the ability to work on three continents in that capacity.
Charles’ latest projects, are:
