A native of Decatur, GA experiencing family shifts and strife, but still being afforded the opportunities to find who she was, Jazzy McBee is building upon everything sent her way. She currently works as a radio personality for one of the top Hip Hop radio stations in Atlanta. She moved her way up from the Morning Show team, dishing daily news and gossip with her entertainment segment,to her on show. Now you can catch her Middays on Streetz 94.5 from 10a-2p Monday through Friday. She plans to branch out into a wide array of fields in the entertainment industry, but none of them will take her away from her strong foundation built around God, family, and community.
Starting off as an intern at a local radio station, her hunger and hard work allotted her the chance to work her way from board operator, to her current positions as on – air personality, programming assistant, and executive assistant to the operations manager. In 2012, she progressed as a morning show co-host on a competing Hip Hop station. Ms. McBee also served as an entertainment reporter for satellite radio that aired weekly on XM radio, “The Buzz in the Streetz News”.
Her strong love for family and community has driven her to become a part of various charities and prompted her to start her own, the Annual Jazzy McBee “Buzz in the Streetz Tour” which encourages students to stay in school, puts together pep rallies for the CRCT, and gives young people hope and a more positive direction for their lives. She also beat out thousands of candidates in a casting call to win a walk on role in Steve Harvey’s “Think Like A Man” movie, which includes an all star cast Gabrielle Union, Kevin Hart, Chris Brown, Meghan Goode, La La Vasquez, Romany Malco, (produced by the Will Packer Sony/Screen Gem). When asked where she draws her motivation, Jazzy McBee shares these sentiments, “It comes from family and visualizing my dream, I see it and I feel close to it so never giving up on it keeps me motivated. I want to be successful; a lot of people in my industry are famous but not successful. My family, especially my 4 sisters and 16 nieces and nephews, makes me feel like I have to make it for them as well as myself.”
Losing her mother in 2008 reminded her not only of the precious value life holds but also of all the support and wisdom she drew from her and those she is closet to. That makes all her goals she is achieving and working towards that more important. Her success speaks to hard work but also a strong support system that anyone aiming for something bigger than what they can see needs along the way.
In a world where people desire stardom, so they can stand for all things flashy, Jazzy’s aim remains to be mentioned amongst those who gave love to those around them at all. A woman of integrity, tangible realness, and reliability stands a lot longer than those who search for fame for superficial come ups. Jazzy McBee is always aware of that so she works on the person she is just as much as the household name she continues to build on.
