Cosmo & JC in the Morning[edit]

Cosmo & JC in the Morning was a radio show hosted by DJs Cosmo and JC from 2004-2011. It was the morning show on Y107 from 5:30 am to 10:00 am. The duo has been known for frequent pranks and stunts, including Punishment Poker. On April Fool's Day 2011, they played Rebecca Black's "Friday" for an hour and a half until a local company called in and gave $3,000 to the Children's Miracle Network as long as they stopped playing the song. They came to Y107 from Mid-Missouri Broadcasting's KOQL (Q106.1), which is now owned by Cumulus. After joining Y107, ratings for the station have increased dramatically. According to on-air promos, Cosmo & JC in the Morning claimed to be number-one in the morning. It was replaced with Cosmo & Whitney in the Morning from 2011-2015, and has continued on as Cosmo & Mike in the Morning from April 20, 2015 to June 3, 2016.

Cosmo and the Y107 Morning Show[edit]

On Nov. 12, 2016, the station started teasing that "mornings will never be the same" starting Monday, and Cosmo was completely removed from the website. Nov. 14 saw the launch of "Marilyn in the Morning" featuring a popular caller taking over the airwaves in pre-recorded segments and bits. On Nov. 15, "Marilyn in the Morning" was gone, but there were continuous static breaks into and after songs, with nearly inaudible people talking. Listener reaction generated speculation and rumors as to what happened to their beloved Cosmo, expressing the desire for his return. On Wednesday, November 16, Cosmo and the Y107 Morning Show was launched featuring Cosmo alongside newcomers Jax, Jaime, and intern Raz. It was revealed Jaime was found during the summer-long co-host for Cosmo search, and was a lifelong resident of Mid Missouri. Jax came to the show after being on air in Chicago. Intern Raz is not a regular, but occasionally appears as the show sends his out on the street doing stunts. The show continues popular segments like the "Loser Line", "Confession Line", and "Vent Line", while adding a phone prank segment on Friday's called "Phone Jax" lead by Jax.
