NNJ Morning Show - 5:00am - 10:00pm
“Borasio” -- aka Jimmy, Junior, Big B or any of the other affectionate nicknames that he answers to -- was born at St Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, NJ on March 4th 1972. He graduated from James Caldwell High School in 1990 and immediately started his own private DJ and entertainment company.
Borasio is an avid animal lover and an especially strong supporter of harsher punishment for animal abusers. His quick wit and life in the music business has provided lots of unique opportunities including working with Cuba Gooding Jr, RuPaul, The Bee Gees, Barry White, and David Lee Roth to name a few!
Borasio relocated to historic Flagstaff, Arizona to work on a heritage radio station for 2 years, then moved on to New York City. He was on the air on the morning of September 11th, 2001 -- during the attacks on the World Trade Center. “It was a life changing experience,” Borasio says. “It made me realize how important terrestrial radio is to people in their everyday lives and it made me so proud to be a part of that system -- to be there for the people who needed information and a calming voice. It gave my purpose a much greater meaning”
Borasio currently resides in Sparta, NJ, and can be heard on the TriState’s Rock Station, 103.7 NNJ, every Monday through Saturday morning from 6 to 10am.
