Ladies ROCK the Radio Industry....OBVIOUSLY!

Hey Hey Hey Everybody!!!

For my blog post today I am going to do two things:
1) A review on a website article
2) Talk about how another leading lady in radio that has inspired me

Let me start by introducing to some and presenting to others, Miss Angela Yee!
Picture found at:

Now I will be honest and say that I have only known of Angela's presence in the radio industry for about  6 months now, I think. So, I'm not a lifelong fan, but after listening to her show and getting updates on what she is up to via twitter, I have become quite fond of her unique style and quick wit. I came to know about Angela Yee through Wale Folarin's twitter page. Now if you don't know who he is then we really have nothing to talk about! LOL. Just kidding. But Wale is a hip hop artist and Angela did a interview with him and put it up on her UStream page. Wale retweeted Angela's tweet about interviewing him, I didnt want to miss seeing him and all of him amazingness live, so I followed her, and the rest is history!!! One thing that I love about Twitter is that it allows us to see that celebrities are just regular people that like to party, hang out with friends, and sleep just like the rest of us. They just have high profile occupations that provide them the opportunity to share their talents with the rest of the world. Anywho, Angela is so down to earth! I absolutely LOVE her! The radio show she hosted on Sirius Satellite radio titled "The Morning After"on Shade 45 was absolutely HILARIOUS!!! She said exactly what she wanted, when she wanted, and the good thing about Satellite radio is that its live and you dont have all the language restrictions that you do in traditional radio.

Ok, ok. I've been typing and typing and I have no idea where I was going with this. I just have so many great things to say about this diva that I don't know where to start and finish!! haha.

Alright, Shon....FOCUS!!!

So, just recently Angela tweeted a link to an interview that she did with Lindsay Good of NBC New York. Take a look

The story talks about Angela's journey through radio. One of the most interesting things I read about her story is that when she started in radio she had absolutely NO EXPERIENCE! And with that, her non-experience having self was offered a job as a radio personality alongside Cipha Sounds. Now up until reading this particular article and watching the video that goes with it, I never had the desire to become a radio personality. Since working in radio sales and recording a few commercials here and there, I have been told several times that I have the "voice" and personality for it, but I always blew it off and continued on with my selling. But now, oh no no no, I want to someday, at least for a little bit, have the opportunity to host a show!! How amazing will that be!! And I also must give some recognition to Maggie, because she told me this as soon as I told her I was getting into radio. So, Maggs, if you are reading this, THANKS! :)

I think that is all I wanted to say about Miss Angela Yee.

Follower her on twitter @angelayee and check out her blog

I think next time I am going to do a review on Steve Harvey...or maybe Rickey Smiley...Tom Joyner?? lol. I am ALLL over the place today. It's definitely time for a Christmas vacation.

~*Love, Peace, & Radio*~
