|He was the BJ of MJ & BJ fame,
Barry Joe Harris from Tennessee. BJ was one of the original “Three
Little Pigs” on The Power Pig along with Marc Chase and Jack
Harris back in 1990. BJ Harris is known as a “programming
genius”, a title that brings a ton of pressure in this business
After a very successful run as morning kings of Tampa
Bay radio, the relationship strained between MJ & BJ. It just
wasn’t fun anymore for BJ, who had very rough duty being
a partner on the air to MJ, and also having to be his boss as
well. It a very difficult task, a balancing act no one has been
ale to manage.
Medical problems compounded the situation, and BJ decided it
was time to step down as an air personality. Clear Channel did
not see it that way, and he was given the option “stay on
the air, or leave”. He left.
All's well that ends well, BJ is back in radio as Program Director
of Kiss107 in Cincinnati, yes another Clear Channel station. He
is doing a tremendous job in a very competitive radio market.
