Jameelah “Just Jay” Wilkerson, CEO and Publisher of “The Hype Magazine”, continues to make a name for herself as one of the leading women in the entertainment industry. The Indiana Native was most recently honored at “The Trailblazer Awards” December 4, 2016, at the Madame Walker Theatre.

Though she is the CEO of her own company, Jameelah prefers to be very “hands-on”, when it comes to the tasks necessary to keep the magazine running smoothly. She showcases her many talents on the back end of the magazine including web designing, consulting, and graphic designing.

She launched the magazine in 2002, at the young age of 24. Not only was she considered “young” to start a company, but it was apparent that she was one of the few women trying to accelerate her career in the midst of a predominately male-run industry. Though it wasn’t always easy, and she wasn’t always taken seriously because of her gender, this never stopped her form excelling in her field.

Why “The Hype”? What does the name stand for?

Jameelah: It stands for How You Perceive Everything. It basically was originated to be more of a literary magazine at first, but then it kinda turned into more of a hip-hop magazine over the years.

A few years ago, I suddenly began getting these weekly emails out of the blue from DigitalRadioTracker.  I was excited because they offer valuable chart information for internet radio spins, a growth area I was closely watching.  Some of my friends in the music industry have started their own internet radio stations and many others have launched internet radio shows.  Additionally, I receive many interview requests and spins for my artists at internet radio.  My concern with internet radio has always been that it’s next to impossible to know how many listeners are reached or how many times a song is played.

DigitalRadioTracker tracks 5,000+ radio stations worldwide, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Although most are internet radio stations, they’ve also included some terrestrial, college, commercial and non-commercial stations.  This gives access to a good balance of radio beyond the traditional…
