Todd Schnitt Career
n 1982, at the age of 16, Schnitt landed his first part-time job at WCPK-AM 1600 in Chesapeake, Virginia. During his high school years, he worked at numerous Hampton Roads, Virginia area stations including WVAB, WNIS and WNVZ. Schnitt attended Ithaca College in New York and worked at the Cornell student-run station, WVBR.
In 1986, he returned to the Hampton Roads area and scored his first full-time radio job at WRSR-FM, which soon reverted to the call letters WGH-FM. The name MJ Kelli was first used at WGH-FM. The name MJ was created because the 97Star program director was adamant that Todd Schnitt was not a good radio name.
In 1988, Schnitt was recruited to leave WGH-FM and cross the street to Top 40 rival radio station WNVZ-FM because Schnitt’s 6-10 p.m. Eastern nighttime show on WGH was the only show beating WNVZ in the nighttime ratings
In 1989, after just a little over a year at WNVZ, Schnitt was hired by Scott Shannon at Pirate Radio, KQLZ in Los Angeles as creative director, assistant program director and morning show cast member. Schnitt later rejoined Shannon at the revamping of WPLJ, New York which had originally signed on as Mojo Radio in April 1991.
Schnitt left New York City in October 1992 to start The MJ Kelli Morning Show, his first morning-drive program (6-10 a.m.) on WOVV (Star 95.5), West Palm Beach, Florida. In February 1994, he was brought to Tampa, Florida to anchor the new morning show on WFLZ (The Power Pig). Schnitt was teamed up with BJ Harris, the Power Pig’s program director to form the MJ and BJ Morning Show. Harris left the show on February 7, 2001. The show was renamed The MJ Morning Show.

Todd Schnitt Bubba the Love Sponge Clem
After Bubba the Love Sponge Clem made an on-air row, calling Todd’s wife w***e, there was an on-air dispute on 23 January 2013. They sued Bubba for making false and highly offensive statements, and while talking about why Bubba called Michelle w***e, Matt Loyd, the former co-host of Bubba said it was a general term to stir it up, and it wasn’t to accuse her with a prostitute label.
Todd and Bubba’s trial continued with Bubba’s accusation of commenting on his wife, Michelle. Todd filed a lawsuit against Bubba on 15 March 2013 and was asked to pay him the $ 1 million legal fee. Also, Bubba agreed not to speak about his wife or children, and not to damage Todd’s excellent reputation.
Following the loss of trial with Bubba in 2013, Todd and his wife Michelle appeared in court on 1 April 2016 after they refused to pay nearly $ 70,000 legal fees. They countered the law claiming that since it was unwinnable, the lawsuit never went to trial.
The duo was asked to show the determination to pay back almost $ 1 million they have already paid. Todd failed to provide evidence in the trial, and his wife defended him by telling the jury he was busy at his New York radio show and busy looking after their son and daughter.
