Jillian “JJ” Simmons, aka JJ on the Mic, on Becoming a Top Radio Personality, Being a Role Model for Young Women & Living a Life Without Bruises

January 3, 2018

Jillian “JJ” Simmons (@JJonthemic) is a multi-hyphenate in every sense of the word. JJ is a mother, entertainer, philanthropist, entrepreneur, and author. As a radio personality for over 20 years, she worked her way up through several markets, working alongside Wendy Williams in New York, and most recently, Houston’s top hip hop station 97.9 The Box. She has interviewed a who’s who of the famous and influential including former President Barack Obama.

On top of her career as a radio personality, JJ is a dedicated mother. She created the website Singlemomsrock.com to motivate other single mothers through her network. She is also the founder of the I’m Me Foundation, which encourages at-risk middle and high school girls to be the best version of themselves.

Jillian “JJ” Simmons is also a fierce mental health advocate. She recently authored a book, Without Bruises, the story of her journey from hurt to healing after surviving an abusive relationship.

On this episode, we talk about how JJ broke into the biggest markets in radio by being a self-starter. How she kept a daily show fresh, what is influencing young girls today, the importance of mental health awareness for everyone, why she left a top job in radio, how she is managing to do it all (or not do it all), and more!
