This Cincinnati native (and her parents) learned early that her place was behind the microphone. In 1998, Jillian’s professional radio career began at WROU-FM in Dayton, Ohio where she held down a weekend host position.
She switched dials to WIZF-FM in her hometown of Cincinnati in 2000. Life changed for her when she packed her headphones and moved to The Big Apple – New York City in February, 2001 – seven months before September 11th. She landed a spot at legendary WBLS-FM where she worked alongside “The Queen of all Media”, Wendy Williams.
In 2002, JJ relocated to Indianapolis to take a job as the midday host on Hot 96.3-FM where she’s served as Assistant Program Director in addition to her duties as a host on Indy Music Channel’s “Freestyle”.
Over the years, she’s interviewed many of your favorites entertainers as well as the 44th President of the United States, Barak Obama. In 2010, JJ was invited to Washington, DC by the Congressional Black Caucus to speak on Hip-Hop’s impact on the American political landscape. This proud mommy continues to champion community causes such as prenatal care in underprivileged communities, AIDS awareness and voter education.
After 9 years in Indy, JJ heads to the Dirty South to become the newest addition to Houston’s #1 Hip Hop Station. You can listen to her Monday thru Friday 10am-3pm on 97.9 The Box.
