Jackie "Kanashimi" Florian
91.8 The Fan
Las Vegas, NV
Jackie "Kanashimi" Florian got her first taste of vocal performance by practicing improv in middle school. She continued studying entertainment and, in 2009, prior to graduating high school, she started in broadcasting when she co-founded online radio station 91.8 The Fan. Since then, her life has been a barrage of conversation with guests ranging from Hollywood talent to Japanese icons. She is known for her popular radio show titled Kana's Korner which airs every weekday between noon and 4 PM PST.
But Jackie's involvement with radio didn't limit her to the airwaves; it began a career of not only on-camera interviews, but leading panels, workshops, and seminars. Her experience in radio has led her to commercial voice over where she's worked for companies such as Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, and many others. Jackie can also be heard as the voice of several universities across the United States and Canada. She's recently made way into video games and animation projects such as Army Of Tentacles (J. Brewer) and Tome: Terrain of Magical Expertise (Anneva). Jackie travels to cons with her team sharing their love of Asian music with the masses and hosting all sorts of panels to amuse and entertain attendees far and wide.
