About Jess

My name is Jess Phaneuf. I’m a graduate of Emerson College in Boston where I majored in Broadcast Journalism and minored in Photography. While at Emerson, I worked for WERS 88.9FM and fell in love with radio! In September of 2008, I accepted a full-time job at mvyradio on Martha’s Vineyard where I worked and lived for 7 years. Beyond my roles at mvy, I was actively involved in the Martha’s Vineyard music and arts scene…booking/promoting shows and events and starting a graphic design/social media business. In November 2015, I took an on-air position at WUMB in Boston, excited to reach a wider audience and return to the city where it all began. You can hear me on WUMB middays from 10am – 2pm on 91.9FM or streaming at wumb.org
