If you’re into pop culture, entertainment, & knowing everything about celebrity gossip, MJ is your girl! The co-host of 106.1 WBLI’s Drive Time Live keeps your afternoon moving with her upbeat personality, mixed in with lots of sass! As a kid, MJ was always the center of attention, putting on shows, singing.
At around 5, her dad told her that she would work in music one day & she knew it’s what she wanted. As a kid, she was always interested in keeping up with her favorite bands like New Kids On The Block, *NSync, Backstreet Boys, & 98 Degrees. She was always well educated on what these bands were up to & what was new in music.
At the age of 16, she began her career in radio and loved it. She ventured out into the music industry world & at the age of 22, she was pulled away from radio & music completely & became a teacher. She taught elementary school for 4 years, but couldn’t fight the urge to get back into radio. At 26, MJ decided to give radio another shot & is now the newest member of the BLI team.
You can check her out on DRIVE TIME LIVE 3PM - 7PM!

You May Be Surprised: I was an elementary school teacher for a few years. I hate bats! I can't even look at a picture of them! I'm scared of almost everything. I'm terrified of life size statues & moving dolls. The Statue of Liberty is the scariest thing to me, wooden soldiers during Christmas time and mostly all of the rides in Disney World with the dolls and the dinosaurs and sharks are my nightmare. Pretty much anything that looks real but is fake I'm scared of. Oh- and Six Flags Great Adventure Fright Fest--- I can't even think about it.. I'm such a baby!
Famous Last Words: You get one shot at life, so do what you love every day & never waste a second!
