Executive Producer - Fred+Angi In The Morning
On Air Personality
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.
Now that this city is packed with Hawks fans again, we have a new NHL to start to love. Or hate.
Let's start off with the good news: The majority of games are going to start at 7 pm, not 7:30.
HAWKS, Avalanche, Stars, Wild, Predators, Blues, Jets
Ducks, Flames, Oilers, Coyotes, Kings, Sharks, Canucks
Hurricanes, Blue Jackets, Devils, Rangers, Islanders, Flyers, Penguins, Capitals
Bruins, Sabres, Red Wings, Panthers, Canadiens, Lightning, Senators, Maple Leafs
SO, when you do the math... We've been separated from the Red Wings. That got under my skin a little since we'll only play them ONCE at home this year before the playoffs. (March 16th is that game by the way. Good luck on those tickets)
Apart from calling Columbus and Raleigh "Metropolitian Cities" (which I refuse to do without quotation marks) and the majority of the Atlantic teams being closer to the great plains than the ocean- I'd say we're alright. Blues are not going to be fun this year to play against. Just putting that out there, but it looks like we've got a pretty solid chance to defend the cup. What do you think?
