RADIO ONE Top 40/Rhythmic KBXX (97.9 THE BOX)/HOUSTON PD TERRI THOMAS adds JILLIAN "JJ" SIMMONS as the new midday personality. JJ replaces DEVI DEV who left in SEPTEMBER to pursue a career in television and satellite media.
SIMMONS comes to KBXX by way of sister station WHHH (HOT 96.3)/INDIANAPOLIS where she was APD/middays and television host of RADIO ONE WDNI-TV (INDY'S MUSIC CHANNEL), since 2002.
"It is truly a pleasure to see someone so talented have the opportunity to grow, her talent, spirit, work ethic and level of professionalism is exactly what we were looking for. There is no doubt that JJ is our first round draft pick for midday's at 97.9 THE BOX and we are thrilled to welcome her to our HOUSTON team," said THOMAS.
"I am so blessed to have the opportunity to work for one of the most influential hip hop stations in the country and join a team of amazing talent," said SIMMONS.
