In The Spotlight: Jeannie Jones

Brand Architect: Goal-Oriented. Passionate. Motivated.



I had the privilege of interviewing Jeannie Jones back in 2006 when she was the 

hottest voice in radio at 93.9 WKYS (DC). We met at Busboys & Poets in DC and 

some question that I asked her resulted in the answer KUMQUAT. She purred that 

word as only the Kitty of the City could. MEOW!!

“Advice on pursuing your passion/dream is make sure you're doing something that excites and challenges you daily. Then research, study and get prepared to be the best at it." - Jeannie Jones

She has since moved to the West Coast but continues to show off her skills in film,  radio and television as an actor, producer and director. I have had countless,  memorable experiences with Jeannie and celebs like Chuck Brown, Mya, Tank,  Richard Gere, Melanie Fiona and many more. I'm ready for the reunion tour, Kitty!​ (2024 Website Refresh - Interview Added to The Blog: Original Post: June 22, 2021)


I asked Jeannie our Signature Spotlight questions, and here is what she had to say. No Kumquats were harmed during questioning! Ha!:
