Ninja DJ Profile

Jenn Rourke (Ninja) has DJ'd since 2001 at various college and community radio stations. She first became interested in radio when she was 7, listening to Casey Kasem's countdown. The radio name Ninja dates back to 2004 while interning at a Chicago morning show, because at the time, Ninja also operated MidwestNinja - an automated streaming radio station that played only Midwestern artists.
