PD JAY ALAN told ALL ACCESS, "LIL JOHN's promotion was long overdue. He is CHICAGO, he knows the city and the music. LIL JOHN has been around for so many years as a local mixer, a lot of CHICAGOANS grew up partying to him on the radio and in the streets. His promotion to full-time for evenings was a natural thing to do. The audience feels a bond with him. And as a person, I like to call him a humble hustler, because he is so genuine in his approach to his life and work."
DJ LIL JOHN's resume includes eight years as a mixer at iHEARTMEDIA Urban WGCI (107.5)/CHICAGO. He began his career at KENNEDY KING College’s WKKC (89.3)/CHICAGO.
