When Kidzworld first learned of radio DJ Cody Morton, we thought it was pretty cool the pre-teen was running his own radio program. Now he's even landed in the Guinness World Records!

When Kidzworld first learned of Cody Morton, a young DJ from Tofino, British Columbia, we thought it was pretty cool that the then 12 year-old was hosting his own radio program. We weren't the only ones who recognized the pre-teen DJ had a pretty unique show.

Cody Morton began running his Bust a Groove radio show when he was just 10 years old. In December of 2002, (he's now 14) this gig has landed him in the Guinness World Records with the official title of the world's "youngest radio presenter." Way to go, Cody!

Cody Morton's radio show is no longer running on Tofino's CHOO FM. Cody and Bust a Groove have found a new home on AV1240 in Port Alberni, Canada. For more on Cody and his radio program, check out www.bustagrooveonline.com.

Cody Morton's Story

If you're like most kidz you like to crank-up the radio for the latest tunes. Cody Morton likes radio so much that he runs his own radio program called Bust a Groove on AV1240 in Port Alberni, BC, Canada. There are a ton of radio shows out there but how many of them are run by 14 year-old boys?

Most guys his age are off playing baseball, video games or hangin' with friends. Of course Cody does normal things too, but Saturday mornings he does a two-hour radio program. Now that's dedication!

Cody Morton's show is made up of pop and new music. Back when Cody was 12, he told the Vancouver Province newspaper, "I play Shaggy, Soul Decision, Nelly Furtado. And I throw in some jokes and really stupid stuff. It's relaxed and laid back."

Besides playing great tunes, Cody's also interviewed some great people on his show like Blue Rodeo, The B.C. Lions football team, Soul Decision, Edwin and even the Prime Minister of Canada Jean Chretien. Now that's something for show and tell! He writes and prepares the scripts at home before warming up at the station. His Bust a Groove show has been on the air, in various parts of Canada, for several years now and shows no signs of slowing down.

One of the major highlights for the youngest DJ in the world was covering the 2001 Juno Awards show (Canada's answer to the Grammys.) When he discovered he was the youngest person with access to the media room he said, "I'm the youngest person ever?! Whoa! That's really cool. I'm really hyped about it. It's all good." Word on the street is that Cody Morton's a natural and people love him. He was voted the Best DJ in the city of Port Alberni in a reader's poll by the Alberni Valley Times daily newspaper.

It looks like Cody Morton has a really bright future ahead and who knows, one day he could be taking over MTV.
