Danni Bruns was born in Chicago, but raised in Memphis. She attended Germantown and Houston High School where she got her first taste of media. The summer after high school Danni walked into Chris Jarman’s life at some “other” radio station in Memphis. This was the beginning of the end…for both of them! Danni went off to college at The University of Alabama (ROLL TIDE!), but each summer would return to Memphis so Jarman could teach her the ins and outs of radio. After Alabama, Danni was a morning show co-host with DD Hamrick at Tuscaloosa’s Country Music Station 98.1 WTXT. After two years with DD, Danni decided she would give stand up comedy a shot in Los Angeles. Although she was having fun and worked some cool shows, home and radio (and Jarman) were calling her back. She took a job in Memphis at Q107.5 for over two years. Although Danni likes to dance, she didn’t enjoy playing dance music. Rock has always been Danni’s favorite type of music.
She grew up with the Beatles, Black Crowes are her favorite, and there are no words to express the admiration she has for Elvis. There were some dead head times in there as well, but that is a whole other trip. Danni has been the afternoon jock at 98.1 The Max since 2007, and loves the music, her loyal listeners but even more….working with Chris Jarman again! Danni started her career at the frequency 98.1 and hopes to end it at that same frequency. And again…ROLL TIDE!
