Needless to say, he is one of the most sought-after personalities in the Tri-State area for his impeccable abilities to work in media from the ground up. What many people don’t realize, however, is that what they see on the screen or on the stage is only a small portion of what Storm Bennett is capable of.

Clients currently using NYE Countdown include some of the hottest hotels, clubs, and casinos including Melia Resorts, Ritz Carlton Spain, Mohiba Switzerland and Energy Nightclub Cincinnati.
Storm has never been afraid to jump into the unknown. In fact, his career started out in the 90s when he decided to take an opportunity as an intern for the Glenn Beck Program on Baltimore’s B-104FM/WBSB. This paramount internship gave Storm the foundation he needed, setting him on the path to be the Renaissance man he is today. In record time, Storm became a national name in media.
From that moment on, he would enjoy a number of exciting roles in television, marketing, and other media endeavors, and it wouldn’t be long before he would launch the first of his three companies.
From DJing coast to coast in hotspots such as Washington DC, Baltimore, Ocean City, Houston, Atlanta, New Jersey, and New York to catapulting clients to success, Storm has definitely taken the media and advertising worlds by storm, serving not only as a recognizable face but as a pivotal thought leader in marketing and advertising. If there’s a new opportunity in media, even if it means learning a few new skills, Storm is your guy!
In the marketing realm, Storm is second to none in his abilities to pinpoint a client’s needs and create a strategy for bringing them to success beyond imagination. He’s been the face and voice of numerous companies via nationally aired television commercials, websites, and corporate events, even emceeing corporate functions, and has been the face of a number of major brands, such as BMW, Honey Baked Ham, Frisch’s, and Pirates Cove Tropical Grill.
When placed at the helm of a brand, Storm has shown to have an almost tactical ability to ignite growth. In the late 90s, Storm was the Vice President of Entertainment and Marketing for Chills and Thrills, Inc. Soon after, he would be hired and moved to Cincinnati as the Entertainment and Marketing Director and Head DJ for The Yucatan Liquor Stands. Within a few years, Storm would become a partner for Yucatan, and he would stay in Cincinnati, where he’s still making a mark on the media and marketing world today.
Since moving to Cincinnati, Storm has become a regionally known success as a DJ for KISS 107FM and MIX 94.1FM. Over the course of the past 14+ years, Storm has also been an integral part of the Sinclair Broadcasting team, where he is an on-air personality, brand endorser and commercial voiceover as heard and seen on Cincinnati’s CBS affiliate; Local 12 and the My Networks; Star 64.
While he holds a bachelor’s degree in Television, Theatre, and Marketing, Storm attributes his success to having an old-fashioned strong work ethic and a genuine passion for the work he does.
He’s also fast to thank the people he’s built relationships with along the way, including higher ups working in media around the country. In addition, Storm thanks his clients – while he’s busily building their success, they also provide him with an incredible amount of fulfillment in knowing he’s giving back.
When Storm isn’t working on a new marketing deal with a client, DJing/ Emceeing locally or across the country, on air, or serving as a spokesman for companies, he’s quietly working within the community.
He is passionate about giving back and is involved in local charities such as The Make A Wish Foundation.
You certainly don’t come across many media figures who are so prominently immersed in media and advertising. Perhaps that’s what gives Storm his edge in this arena, or perhaps it’s his hard-earned knowledge in areas that he’s been genuinely passionate about for so long.
