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.
There is something about the post-grad bro that is difficult to come to terms with. For those of us in our mid-20's, we grew up in a phase that scruff was cool. You could go a week or two without shaving. Our Mach-3 razors sat perched atop our cluttered frat bathrooms all in a row, all unused, all collecting bits of toothpaste and mouthwash bounce-back. Sadly for us, those days are over.
We have to come to terms with the fact that we will not have a Tom Selleck mustache for another 20 years. Even Brad Pitt looks homeless with his scruff. So, before we put on our bright pastel golf shorts and Brooks Brothers polo, we need to do some cleaning. However, most of us still have that same Mach-3 from our college days.
That's where you come in. If you need a gift for a bro, I HIGHLY suggest a nice razor gift set. Not a trip to the store and pick out a random one. Under the tree, any bro would love to see a nice brush thingy, some different types of shaving cream and aftershave, and a nice razor.
So for Day 4 of the Broliday List... I give you... THE SHAVING SET
