“On Air Jordan” (formerly known as “Shorty Da Prince”) is a young media veteran who began his radio journey at 12 years old. Originally from St. Louis, MO Jordan won a contest that granted his him own Saturday morning radio show from 10am – 12noon on 100.3 The Beat KATZ FM. From then on he went to be the number 1 night jock in St. Louis and entered the Radio One Family accepting an offer to do nights in Detroit, MI. “I’m a St. Louis D Boy haha” said Jordan when asked about his connectivity to the harsh city that he now considers part of his make up. His impact with the people through radio would catch the attention of BET. “I check my email one night while I was on the air in Detroit and they basically said we’ve been watching you”
Jordan explains how his relationship with BET started not knowing at the time that path would lead him to be the host for the flagship show 106 & Park. Hosting alongside Paigion, Miss Mykie, and Bow Wow, Jordan somehow still kept his foot in radio doing a weekend show on Streetz 94.5 in Atlanta, GA. Following the finale of the show on BET, Jordan spent a few months on Streetz before re-entering the radio one family in Cleveland, OH. Jordan was very well received in his short stay in Cleveland, attributing it mostly to his Midwest roots, before he received an offer to be the on air night talent for 93.9 WKYS in DC. “Yea man a whole lot of moving around lol.. God is good tho” said Jordan.
Washington, DC would go on to be one of his favorite stops along his journey. He was able to take the night shift to #1 being involved in everything throughout the DMV from hosting the hottest parties, visiting schools and uplifting the youth to creating a platform for DMV artist to be heard in a song combat feature he called “KYS Versus” After taking about a year and a half hiatus from radio “On Air Jordan” is back and better than ever embracing the changes yet staying true to self.
