Early life

Jones graduated with honors from the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, having majored in classical music.[citation needed] She also has a bachelor's degree in music from Syracuse University.[citation needed] After graduating from college, she worked several jobs until her chance meeting of Doug E. Fresh in front of Men's Walkers shoe store on 125th st where she was signed on the spot after an impromptu audition.[citation needed]



Before becoming host of WQHT's Miss Jones in the Morning show, Jones was an integral part of the Star and Buc Wild morning show on Hot 97.[1]

She wrote a Best selling autobiography, Have You Met Miss Jones?: The Life and Loves of Radio's Most Controversial Diva, in 2007, published by Random House.[2]

On June 28, 2008, WQHT's contract with Jones expired, and she returned to the airwaves of Philadelphia, a city that adorned Jones with the Key to the City and several mayoral awards for her community service endeavors.

In January 2012 Jones developed and launched, but due to the perils of Hurricane Sandy the broadcast was short lived.


In 2005, Jones was a vocalist on Hot 97's parody of the song, "We Are the World", reworked to include distasteful lyrics relating to the Indonesian tsunami. Former Opie and Anthony program director Rick Delgado was credited for penning the song, which would see him get fired from Hot 97, with Jones suspended while claiming that she was against the song (despite her recognizable voice being prevalent throughout the parody). Jones' denials were in sharp contrast to her heated verbal confrontation with a fellow radio presenter prior to the song itself (the exchange of which went out live over the air and featured Jones admonishing her co-host loudly and severely). The co-host, Miss Info, is herself Asian and voiced her disapproval accordingly.[3]
