Executive Producer - Brotha Fred's Neighborhood
On Air Weekends
MJ was raised in Naperville and attended Benet Academy in Lisle. While pursuing a career in Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University, MJ fell into radio after following some of his friends to their on-air show at a small dorm station, WILY, and instantly knew that media was his passion.
Deciding he was better suited behind a microphone than a Bunsen burner, MJ followed radio to North Central College in Naperville. He honed his skills at NCC's college station, WONC, where he spent part of every day in the studio.
He started his professional career at KISS FM with a promotions internship, and used his tenacity and enthusiasm to dive into different departments throughout the station, including promotions, production, programming, and on-air talent. Known as a "jack-of-all trades," he has been a Promotions Intern, Promotions Assistant, Evening Show Producer, Production Assistant and is currently the Executive Producer on the morning show, Brotha' Fred's Neighborhood.
When not locked in the studio, MJ likes to play golf and video games. He is a HUGE Blackhawks and Sox fan, and a Mountain Dew addict.
So this weekend had some pretty major events happen... like I got engaged to my amazing girlfriend fiancee, Mary.
It was down at Navy Pier where we had one of our very first dates. I just wanted to thank everyone who showed their support and love this morning when we got to announce it on the show, and I'm sure you'll be hearing much, much, much more about it.
