Hey hey! I'm Austyn Fennell and I'm a weekend DJ at SoJO 104.9. I'm a proud South Jersey native - born and raised in Voorhees NJ. I graduated from Rowan University in 2016 with a B.A. degree in Radio/Television/Film and a minor in Journalism. I didn't start getting interested in radio until my junior year in college when on a whim I decided to join my school's radio station, Rowan Radio. After I got into the groove of things I discovered that I kind of love radio! And I've been at it ever since. In a little over a year I hosted three daytime shows and co-hosted a morning show and had a blast all the while. During my senior year I was a promotions intern at Townsquare Media Atlantic City, where now I can talk to you over the airwaves on SoJO during the weekends! Once you get to know me you'll find that I'm also a TV and movie junkie and I'm obsessed with Leonardo DiCaprio. Talk to you soon!
