Missy Bolden was born and raised in "The City of Angels.” She transitioned to Columbus, Ohio as a teenager and is proud graduate of East High school and The Ohio State University. After a summer internship with CBS News in New York City, she realized her passion for the entertainment industry.
In efforts to become more marketable in her field, a chance meeting at Radio One Columbus led to a job opportunity in promotions. She quickly rose through the Radio One ranks from a remote tech to programming and producing many high profile key syndicated shows including The Coco Brother Live Show, The Monique Show and The D. L. Hughley Show. Missy also expanded her talents to include blogging, producing on-air promos and commercials spots.
After years of learning many facets of radio, she was able to fulfill her ultimate goal of on-air talent. Her big break came in 2014 when she "cracked the mic," with her on air debut as "Missy B." Currently, she is the newest face of WJYD Joy 107.1 on the weekend. Listen to her Saturday's 7-11p (Nights with Missy B) and Sunday's 10a-2p (Sunday Brunch with Missy B.)
You can find her all over Columbus, highlighting local events and resources with her Missy B On The Move digital segment. Her talents have also taken her nationally, to cover top entertainment award shows including The GMA Dove Awards, The Stellar Awards, BET Hip-Hop Awards and Essence Festival.
Missy B loves to travel, dine and is an advocate for women and girls. She supports young women through her girl empowerment program, iGirl.
