Cappuchino will make her Power 99 debut on Sunday.

Cappuchino is over the moon.

“It’s been my dream to be a part of Power 99 FM,” says the deejay, described by WUSL as “a half-Thai, half-Black beauty.”

“It’s a nationally respected ground breaking urban station and I can’t wait to reach out and be very much a part of the community.”

Cappuchino’s bio:

Born and raised in Miami, Fla., Cappuchino (Cheryl Hayden) decided radio would be her joy when she toured Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, Florida.

By her second semester at FAMU, the half-Thai, half-Black beauty was given the moniker Cappuchino (because of the hue of her skin).

She also began training other students and served as a college record representative for Atlantic Records. Cappuchino was one of the chosen few to manage her college radio station and work in commercial radio at WHBX (96.1-FM) in Tallahassee, Fla.

Cappuchino received her B.S. degree in newspaper journalism and decided to stick with radio.

She spent the last 7 years at KMJJ (99.7-FM) in Shreveport, La., as the Assistant Program Director and Midday Host.

Cappuchino is a learner, a speaker, a mom, wife and a social butterfly and will tell you what’s on her mind and she enjoys music!
