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.
All these hoaxes about Justin Bieber have gotten WAY out of hand. First we had the #cutforbieber thing, that was messed up in itself. In no way is that funny, but it's really dangerous. Now we have something called #BieberonOmegle, which is HORRIBLE.
Omegle is a free chat site a lot like ChatRoullete. If you don't know what that is, it's a public forum where you can go on your webcam and talk to other people on webcams. That seems pretty harmless till you find out that a VERY high percentage of these people on it are grown men showing their junk on the camera. Maturity has hit rock bottom.
SO, when you put the pieces together, this new trend could lead to Bieber's main fans (young kids/girls) going on an unfiltered site to see their favorite artist... only to get a screenfull of horribly inappropriate images.
Now, I don't have any kids, but I have 3 nieces (9 years old, 7 years old, and 2) that all LOVE JB. I can't imagine their innocence bubble getting shattered like this. So please, if you have kids... Go to your secutiry settings on your computers and BLOCK Omegle.com.
