Young Gee

Saturday, 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Young Gee is a multifaceted on air personality with over ten years of radio experience. In 2000, as an intern, Young Gee was given the name by actor and television personality Terrance J & CEO of Journee Enterprises Fred Whitfield who work at Jamz during those times. The “Gee” was short for her name Garrick. 

Young Gee explains her start in radio was unintentional. One day, she decided to visit the college radio station WNAA 90.1 while attending A&T, and signed up to be a part of the street team. A few months later, she started sitting in on a radio show, just to learn the behind the scenes operations of radio. While working with the street team for about a year, she was connected with the promotions department at WJMH 102 JAMZ. After interning in the promotions department, she wanted to learn the production side of things, including running the board, and the daily operations of on air. 

Branding herself as the “voice of the people”, Young Gee makes a point to connect with the community. Her tenacity eventually put her in the position to intern on the weekend mix show for about 2 years. This drive and eagerness to perfect her craft has catapulted Young Gee in radio. You can catch Young Gee at nights rocking out on 102 Jamz.
