Who We Are


DNR Studios: The Hottest Talk in Talk Radio, founded by Derek and Romaine.DNR Studios started off as the award-winning radio duo Derek and Romaine. After a 12-year run on SiriusXM Radio, the two launched their own platform: a hybrid of live radio and online streaming.

Today, DNR Studios is home to nearly 12 radio shows and podcasts — and is called the “Hottest Talk in Talk Radio.” Listeners can call in during the show and download episodes to play on the go.


At DNR Studios, we strive to…

  • Entertain, educate, and inform audiences all around the world.

  • Create a welcoming and inclusive environment for LGBTQ+ talent.

  • Give back to organizations that support our values & communities.


Over the years, we’ve raised over $250,000 for various charities that address sexual & gender equality, fight against HIV/AIDS, and support homeless/at-risk youth.

And thanks to generous support from the Susanne Marcus Collins Foundation & a partnership with the LGBT Center and Ali Forney Center, we’ve launched an internship Program for LGBT youth! Our studio is training the next generation of creators in the broadcast media industry. Some skills we teach include:

    • Editing
    • Sound board operations
  • Call screening
  • Social media
  • Audio software programs, and
  • Live show production.
