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.
Britney had a one-and-done season on the X-Factor, apparently she quit before the producers had a chance to fire her.
There have been rumors floating around for months, but it's finally official that she will not be returning next year for another lackluster, non-crazy, non-shaving head, season.
It looked like she was going to get the boot, but instead claims that she wants to finish her 8th (8?!? REALLY? I thought there were about 3) album and then tour.
Love Brit, but if she wants to keep making headlines, she's going to have to shave her head again. Or at least go with some Skrillex hair.
