For the first time in over a decade a new voice and a new sound will grace the night time airwaves on Magic 106.3. Sunday through Friday from 7pm to midnight relax and unwind with Vaneese Johnson on The Quiet Storm on Magic 106.3. Vaneese will guide you through a musical journey into some of the greatest love songs ever made. She’ll also take your Quiet Storm Twitter and Facebook requests as well.
Raised in Detroit and attending Cass Tech’s Performing Arts curriculum Vaneese found that she enjoyed being behind the scenes in radio. “My original intention was to produce award winning radio commercials…that all changed during an internship when the program director asked me if I wanted to go on the air.” It was the proverbial turning point in her career. Finishing a degree at the University of Detroit (before consolidating with Mercy College) and a few part time gigs later in Urban Adult Contemporary, Disco and New Wave Vaneese eventually landed a full time slot as host of “Jazz On AM” at a station owned by the late Martha Jean “The Queen” Steinberg. It wasn’t long before she moved back over to FM, this time as host of an evening program.
