Amir Diamond

Amir Diamond is a Radio/TV/Social Media Personality who hails from the city of Houston and stepped behind the microphone minutes after his birth. Amir's passion for music grew after watching both of his parents flourish with successful careers in the entertainment industry. He is the son of Kandi Eastman "The Only Kandi Mom Wants You To Have" (KMJQ) and MC Spice (best known for his voice-over production for "The Wendy Williams Experience"), but has grasped the hearts of his own following with a highly energetic, humorous and positive personality. Amir Diamond is a Broadcast Journalism Graduate from the University of Houston's Class of 2012 and prides himself in being a mentor for the younger generation. "My dream is to inspire people, entertain, encourage and inform." While at U of H, Diamond hosted his own internet show, which attracted Houston Area Chevy Dealers, leading him to secure his first brand endorsement deal (before he was even awarded his Bachelor's Degree)! Amir joined the 97.9 The Box On-Air Team in April 2013 and has gained notoriety for his thought-provoking conversations with celebrities like Bun B, Kevin Gates, Sevyn Streeter and more Cool Fact: His hard work ethic was the inspiration behind Beyoncé nicknaming him "The Hustler."
