“Full of love and smooth as R&B, with a touch of Hip-Hop…”
That’s how Jenell describes her Dj style! She is never afraid to talk about the real issues, but she is very mindful of pouring light into her listeners by playing feel-good music relevant to her message.

She inspires to be an active member in her community by using her talents in connection with WRFU, UC-IMC. Jenell wants to shine a light on her community by letting all her listeners know about the opportunities and businesses available to them. She wants everyone to know, not only can they dream, but they can obtain them! For everyone’s dream and life purpose is unique to them, and she wants to encourage them to bring it to pass! She will show them in her actions as On-air personality.
