About Jess

41099650_763460774003282_2587577513618178048_nMy 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! I’m currently the Music Director at MVYRADIO on Martha’s Vineyard, where I host the new music show, Uncharted Waters. I’ve previously worked at WUMB in Boston, and at the legendary Club Passim in Cambridge. As Outreach Coordinator at Passim, I organized and executed 40 outdoor concerts across the summer, and led a planning committee and volunteer team to organize and execute the 15th anniversary of the Boston Celtic Music Festival…170 musicians played across 4 days and 3 venues – a proud professional moment! When I’m not on the radio or helping to organize music events, I love to sing and dance on stage in community theatre productions!
