TT Torrez was born of star quality. Her mother received confirmation when her birth made the cover of the NY Daily News. The third of eight children impoverished by life in the Bronx, TT pressed on to become the first of her siblings to graduate from college. She dreamed of being the next Ricky Lake.
At Norfolk State University, though, TT’s television goals became overshadowed by her radio accomplishments. Her role as the morning show host on the college station WNSB landed her in Charlotte, NC’s WCHH Hot 92.7 as a part time radio host. From there, TT Torrez moved farther south to WSSP Power 94.3 in Charleston, SC for positions as a midday personality and producer for the esteemed Russ Parr Morning Show. With rapid succession after leaving WSSP, TT went from street promotions at DC’s WKYS 93.9 to working alongside media giants Star and Buc Wild and Wendy Williams, who, as with Russ Parr, would mentor the young radio diva throughout her career.
It wasn’t long before television returned to battle for TT’s love and dedication. For four years, TT Torrez traveled the states for Music Choice, covering red carpet events, writing and producing for television shows, and hosting on‐camera interviews with celebrities. While at Music Choice, TT also found time to work weekends as an on‐air personality for the legendary WUSL Power 99 in Philadelphia. TT Torrez can now be found working as a full‐time midday personality and Music Director for WCDX iPower 92.1 in Richmond, VA.
Given her humble beginnings, TT ensures that she makes time for giving back. Because she maintains unique relationships with all people, including the numerous celebrities who have visited her microphones, TT’s “Pink Birthday Party” charity event benefiting breast cancer research received national attention and success. Among her charity events, TT Torrez has the “I Will Wait Until I Graduate” campaign to encourage young girls to graduate before parenting a child.
TT has been featured in various media outlets including Vibe, The Source, and Hip Hop Weekly circulations, television shows Nancy Grace, Entertainment Tonight, and Access Hollywood, and blog sites bossip.com, allhiphop.com, and globalgrind.com. Quentin Tarentino, P. Diddy, Rick Ross, and 50 Cent were among her notable celebrity interviews. TT Torrez has also covered the MTV VMAs, the BET Awards, the BET Hip Hop Awards, and the Grammys.
