Christy Ray, whose father is retired NBA player Kenny Anderson, was born in New Jersey, spent a few years in Long Island, then spent the rest of her growing-up years in Los Angeles with her famous mom. As a kid, Christy Ray was always curious about her mother's profession, but says she wasn't fully aware of the magnitude of either of her parents' stardom. They were just Mom and Dad. She says she never developed her dad's basketball gene, but by the time she was 11, she was actively spinning records around the house, mimicking her mother.
Eventually, Christy Ray, now 23, had the confidence to spin in front of a crowd. Her first gig was nationally televised during an '80s-themed episode of MTV's My Super Sweet 16. However, she puts an asterisk beside this accomplishment because MTV didn't pay for the licensing required to air her set list.
"What you're hearing is not me DJing," she says. "You were seeing me, but a lot of the time you weren't actually hearing [what I was playing]."
While attending Hofstra University, Christy Ray DJ'd here and there to make some extra cash. After graduation, she moved to Dallas, where her mother was the midday DJ at KSOC-FM (94.5) for a year. The two still live here. Dallas has grown on Christy Ray, and she says she prefers it to New York and Los Angeles.
