KBUU BIG ROCKS WITH CARYN WEISS
Caryn Weiss host and DJ of her show, “Big Rocks” considers herself one lucky
girl! Originally from NY and the daughter of a photographer, turned four time
Emmy winning Technical Director for NBC Television, as well as an actress
mother ,who exposed her to many Broadway musical soundtracks as an infant,
became obsessed with radio during her formative years. She started making
playlists of her own (before iTunes)… not to mentioned choreographing dance
shows for the neighbors, to accompany her musical selections.
Off to college as a Dance and Journalism major, Caryn’s career plans of going into broadcast news, while working as a Page at NBC and a researcher for KNBC and KNXT news, took a bit of a detour… into the world of photography.
After college, she became a Photography Editor for Playboy Enterprises and
Cosmopolitan Magazine, which later transitioned into her owning and operating,
her Agency, “WeissArtists”, representing the top entertainment photographers in
The agency became known for a “go to” for many Record Label, Artists
Managements, and Indie Artists. Caryn’s insatiable passion for business,
photography and music made this a natural path, allowing her to ultimately end up serving the visual needs for musical artists.
As the Agency continued to grow, Caryn volunteered at a pledge drive at KCSN
88.5 FM Radio in 2014. Wanting to support the music she loved so much. Later,
the station asked her if she would like to guest DJ with Julie Slater ( she calls her
muse) , on “Out on a Limb”. Yes, of course! And the shows were a hit! And she
caught “the bug”!
“It was a life changing event, as I found my own creative passion and could
also utilize my contacts and knowledge of the music industry to offer my services
to the radio world”. And that’s just what happened! After a year of volunteering at
KCSN, Hans Laetz General Manager and owner of KBUU ,and Caryn met , and
the show, “Big Rocks with Caryn Weiss” was created and launched on Radio
MALIBU in 2015.
While Caryn continues to Freelance as an Art Director and Photographer’s Agent
helping both clients and musical artists find their vision, she is continues to
produce and record her show Big Rocks show ,which airs Tues. & Thurs. 3-5 PM
and Weds. 8-10PM every week.
