Michigan born Michigan raised, I literally didn't leave this state for over 6 years but I was ok with that because I love it here so much. I first wanted to get into radio when I was 17 and realized I was too dumb to go to college. Radio is pretty much my life, I have been working in this industry for 7 years now and I have loved every second of it. Before getting into entertainment I had every job under the sun, I did janitorial work, telemarketing, I even was a pizza shop manager. I got my first job in radio doing promotions, at the same time I was the night show intern on WDZH (98.7 Amp Radio) in Detroit. That led me to move 45 minutes north to Flint where I hosted the Night show for 3 years on WRCL (Club 93.7). After that it was back to Detroit, I was the music director and midday host of both WJLB (97.9) and WMXD (Mix 92.3). And now I have moved to the Capital city to be the Program Director and afternoon host on Power 96.5.
Flint native, always had a passion for entertainment growing up. From class clown in his highschool years (Flint Southwestern ‘12), MC and DJ throughout the years of college for his piers, to now being one of the most sought out DJs in Mid-Michigan. Since CJ has been out making a name for himself DJing clubs and events, he has made his way to radio where he shares nothing but Good Vibes Only to the people of the Capital City.
You can catch CJ on the airwaves Sunday - Friday from 6PM - 10PM on the Capital City’s #1 for Hip Hop and R&B, Power 96.5FM.
