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.
I think everyone in their right mind knows that if you date Taylor Swift, you're probably going to end up breaking up and having a hit song written about you. That is a constant right on par with the laws of gravity and Jay Cutler getting injured before the playoffs.
But that didn't stop 98 Degrees' Nick Lachey from speaking out about it. According to Perez Hilton, Nick reportedly said:
"And stay away from Taylor Swift! She’ll write a song about you… Oh! I’m too late on that one. I didn’t get to [that advice] fast enough. [The song will] be a hit, but it will be about you."
Well, thanks Nick. The sky is blue.

Chris Brown and Drake... still fighting. Still.
Apparently Drake was out last night, and according to USA Today, Drake was out last night saying: "Don't ask me (expletive) about that man when I come up there. Leave that man alone. Stop preying on his insecurities," said Drake. "His insecurities are the fact that I make better music than him. I'm more poppin' than him."
Well, whoever is more "poppin'" they need to get over it... we're getting sick of it...though, at least no bottles were thrown this time.

Bill gates made a call out for anyone that can improve condoms to win $100,000... one of the more unexpected entries in the competition is the guy from the Slingshot Channel on YouTube...
if you haven't seen any of his stuff, it's quite hilarious just because of his struggle with the English Language and the fact that he seems like one of the nicest guys on the face of the Earth.
Let's look over the checklist... Bill Gates, Condoms, Slingshots. Yup, got everything. Here we go. Safe to say, don't do this at home.
