Jenny Lizak DJ Profile

Jenny Lizak first honed her DJ skills on a Fisher Price record player, and later, a Care Bears cassette player. A devotee of the Kermit the Frog philosophy of reporting, she was well recieved for her journalism and music programming amongst both her little sister and their stuffed animals. Several decades later, she studied communication at Loyola University and worked at the college radio station, where she fell in love with radio.

Jenny is one of the original board members of the Chicago Independent Radio Project and has served as Marketing Co-Director, Legislative Director, Vice President, President of the Board. Her favorite CHIRP moment was presenting the case for low power FM radio in Chicago to President Obama's technology advisor in the White House, and helping to successfully lobby for the passage of the Local Community Radio Act.

When she's not CHIRPing, Jenny works in the Cultural and Civic Engagement Department of the Chicago Public Library. She is an avid volunteer with the American Cancer Society and with her family has raised over $125,000 for cancer research and programs since 2001.

CHIRP relies on your support to pay our bills - Donate to Jenny's personal fundraising page and help her raise money for CHIRP this year!
