Power 92's Bionce Foxx.

Radio producer Bionce Foxx, (producer of Power 92’s “The TakeOver”), is a leader in the radio industry. Foxx, aka the Fox on the Box, is also the general manager of Chicago’s new Internet station and an instructor at the prestigious Illinois Center for Broadcasting.

Foxx began her career when she heard a calling, literally, a radio ad searching for a new host. Foxx swiftly responded with a demo tape. Within a week, the inexperienced talent was on the air and 12 years later, she is still in radio. –lydia k. nesmith
