About Darvio "Kingpin" Morrow
Darvio "The Kingpin" Morrow is an entertainer, radio personality, radio producer, music producer (and occasional rapper), opinion journalist and the CEO of FCB Entertainment, Inc. Darvio is a 10+ year veteran of the music, radio and entertainment industries.
Darvio's career began with the founding of Untouchable Clique Entertainment (now an FCB Records Group label) in 2003. Darvio led the company to sign a digital distribution deal with what is now the Sony Music-owned company "The Orchard". Today Darvio's FCB Records Group has grown to feature multiple artists in various genres and contains Untouchable Clique Entertainment, FCB Records and the FCB Music Publishing Group (ASCAP) in its portfolio. Darvio also formerly spent time at the now-defunct Universal Records subsidiary Rust Records. Keeping true to his roots, Darvio still occasionally raps using his "Kingpin" moniker.
Darvio's radio career began in 2005 as the co-host and co-creator of "Tha Goodfellaz", a late night radio show on Sportstalk Cleveland. In 2006 Darvio created First Class Hip-Hop, a legendary digital radio station. One of the early pioneers of the digital radio genre in Cleveland, First Class Hip-Hop broke multiple records, scored multiple award nominations and served as the radio home of the former Cleveland City Stars soccer team. First Class Hip-Hop also hosted "The Hott Spott" a show co-produced and syndicated by Darvio which at its peak had over 1 million listeners a week.
From there Darvio moved to politics, where he helped with various campaigns and committes and served as the campaign manager for the "Phyllis Crespo for Cuyahoga County Council" campaign in 2010. During this time Darvio also entered into the world of opinion jouralism, writing various musings on everything from politics to music and pop culture for different outlets, a role he occasionally continues to this day.
Darvio returned to the entertainment industry full time in 2011 with the creation of "Musera Radio", a group of several digital radio stations that grew into some of the largest and most popular independently owned digital stations in the country. Darvio eventually left Musera to return to being an on-air personality by creating and co-hosting The Avenue Radio Show, a talk show that aired on Salem Media Group-owned WHK-AM in Cleveland. At the same time, Darvio also worked at ESPN Radio Cleveland, serving as a co-creator, producer and occasional on-air personality for a show there.
In 2014 Darvio left The Avenue and created WFCBRadio.com, the largest group of stations he has independently owned to date. Hundreds of thousands of listeners frequented the stations from 2014 to 2016 when its licensing and streaming partner, Live365, went out of business. Today Darvio is the co-creator and co-host of The Outlaws Radio Show, which is on iHeartRadio and other outlets. He also runs the FCB Radio Network, which is launching The Outlaws Radio Show, the Todd Allyn Show and others into national syndication.
A maven of entertainment, radio, music and politics, Darvio brings his passion, experience and his trademark "swag" to anything he is involved in.
