Peter Rosenberg: Birth, Parents, Siblings & Education
Peter Rosenberg was born in Chevy Chase, Maryland, on July 23, 1979. He was born in Maryland to a Jewish Capitol Hill staffer father and a public-school teacher mother, who raised him alongside his siblings and sent him to Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School before enrolling at the University of Maryland.
Peter’s interest in hip-hop was sparked by his older brother, who was also a fan of the music genre. He was also influenced by early 1990s hip hop songs such as DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince’s second single Parents Just Don’t Understand from their second album, He’s the DJ, I’m the Rapper.
Peter became involved in several underground hip-hop programs because he was more passionate about the music genre. Even as a freshman at the University, he was a hit on a campus-wide program called From Dusk ‘Til Dawn.
This was his first on-air program, and it marked the start of his career as a radio host. At the time, his DJ name was “PMD,” which stood for “Peter From Maryland.”

Within a short time, he was a part of the station’s most-listened-to program, The Hot 97 Morning Show, which aired from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. and featured old and new artists and their music.
The program was hosted by Peter, Cipha Sounds (also known as Luis Diaz), and African-American DJ K. Foxx, and the three were dubbed the Black, the Rican, and the Jew—sometimes shortened to Black Rican Jew, with Peter as the “Jew.”
The program’s success prompted Peter to host his own show, Real Late With Rosenberg, on the same radio station.
