Meet your Host for GPS
Michaelantonio Jones, Memphis, TN
Born and raised in the Bluff City on the mighty Mississippi, Michaelantonio Jones is a son of Tennessee through and through. A globetrotter of sorts, he’s lived in Saudi Arabia and trekked through foreign lands across the globe. Coming from a family that sees service as duty, he found his calling in a past life as a journalist—producing local news in Arkansas, Mississippi, and in his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee. He now spends his working days as a healthcare administrator and his free time volunteering locally in politics. But his love for music remains a potent force in his life—after playing the trumpet in band throughout middle and high school and singing in A Capella all the way from middle school to college, he’s found a new place to share his love of music at Ditty TV, introducing the sounds of Americana music to a global audience.
