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 are a few fundamental facts about most bros that are standard across the board.
We have all, at one time or another, went through a phase where we thought Natty Ice really was a great beer.
We all believe that, in some way shape or form, our supersitions have some effect on our favorite sports teams (you can blame the Bears loss this week on me not finishing my laundry and having my lucky Cutler jersey in the dryer during the 4th quarter).
We all, as dudes, think the burgers we grill are the best burgers in the world.
We all love, or at least try to love, the sport of golf. That way we can explain the mass quantities of pastel shorts and white pants in our closet.
Today's gift on the Bro's Holiday List helps stoke the fire of those last two pillars in your Bro's psyche. A golf club barbeque set.
Now, I know what you're thinking. "This is something I would have gotten my dad when I was 10 years old." And you're right. This may be on the list for tacky dad-gifts. But, to a bro still living in the frat house or in their first appartment, these are awesome.
