Sean Hamilton always dreamed about becoming a Disc Jockey, and his dream started when he was six-teen years old when he constructed an illegal pirate radio station in the basement of his parent’s home. Sean admits “I knew I wanted to pursue a career in this business when I caught the bug back then illegally, speaking to 6 people on a clear day. It was such a great feeling that I decided I wanted to speak to a few more.“ His pirate radio station was pulled off the air by the Federal Communications Commission but immediately landed his first job in commercial radio in his hometown of Reno, Nevada. In 1990 New Line Cinema released a motion picture called “Pump up the Volume” starring Christian Slater, which was loosely based on Sean’s life.
On his off time away from the radio industry Sean’s production company Mischief Media Entertainment has directed and produced television projects for Telepictures, Warner Brothers, Twentieth Century Fox and just recently two half hour pilots for Court TV entitled “29 Minutes & Counting”. September 22, 2010 Sean has signed a deal with Emmy award winning production company GRB Entertainment to host and Co-Executive produce a TV series based on the radio industry.
Sean “Hollywood” Hamilton currently lives in New York City but maintains his residence in Los Angeles as well.
