back to faculty
JiJi Sweet began her career as a senior at the University of Arizona. After working on perfecting her craft for about a year, JiJi landed her first gig with the local Kappa Alpha Psi chapter. JiJi soon became one of the most sought after DJ's in Tucson, holding down almost every Greek function at the University. It was here that she began to do Mix CD’s.
A few years later the buzz about JiJi Sweet's Mix CD's was out and she was referred to the Mix Show Coordinator at Tucson's Hot 98.3. JiJi became a regular on the Mix Masters Show and she became an Arizona Star. JiJi wanted to branch out of Arizona to conquer another state so she left for Las Vegas, Nevada where she was promptly hired at KCEP Power 88 as a host of the Mix Down Show. JiJi worked there for a while but still felt like she was destined for bigger and better things. JiJi packed her things and left to the city where dreams come true, Los Angeles, CA. It was there where she rose to the top. Her skills on the turn tables did not go unnoticed and after a brief trial period she was offered a mid-day position where she mixed for Nautica De La Cruz at 100.3 The Beat. At the time 100.3 The Beat was the #1 station in the Los Angeles Market. It was during this period that JiJi was offered a warm up position for the syndicated TV Show, Steve Harvey's Big Time on the WB. JiJi Sweet attained great exposure through this show and jobs started flying her way.
JiJi has been on tour with some of the biggest hip-hop and R&B artists including SWV, YoYo, Tedra Moses and many more .JiJi Sweet is currently the Mix Show DJ for 102.3 KJLH, Los Angeles, Music Choice, Sirius Hot 50 Jams and Super Radio’s 30 Affiliates.
