JJ Kincaid is the afternoon radio personality at Z100 in New York City. His show is quite random, with phone calls from listeners who share strange things about their lives along with hit music throughout.

JJ was also the afternoon personality on 106.1 Kiss FM in Dallas, Texas. He left Kiss as the number 1 afternoon show in Dallas / Ft Worth. His tenure there was two and a half years. He fills in every now and then from New York.

Before Kiss in Dallas, he hosted a morning show in Norfolk, Virginia at Z104. Known to his listeners as "Special Ed" he lasted only 18 months before banging his head against the wall for the last time.

Most know him from his almost 4 years at Minneapolis, Minnesota's KDWB where he was the overnight and late night DJ from 1998-2001. He did a bit called Midnight mass where he pretended to be a priest and offered a prize to the listener with the most juicy confession.

JJ got his start DJing as a mobile DJ for Creative DJs in Ellicott City, MD and regularly spun at the Columbia Ice Rink in Columbia, Maryland in the early 90's while attending Oakland Mills High School. He graduated in 1995.

After that, JJ attended Youngstown State University for 7 months before dropping out.

On September 12 2006 JJ took over the afternoon spot on WHTZ Z100 in New York City. Now just known as JJ, he can be heard every afternoon on Z100.
