I’m a radio lifer. I’m also a mom, a girlfriend, a dog lover, and an advocate for what’s right, but the one constant in my adult life has been radio.
My first turn before a mic was way back in 1979 in college. Today, I host The Nicole Sandler Show at Radio or Not weekday mornings from 10-noon ET. Most recently, I was also honored to be Randi Rhodes‘s regular guest host, filling in on her nationally syndicated program when she was out or on vacation, until her show ended in May of 2014. Along the way, I worked in multiple formats – from News/Talk to CHR to AC and Hot AC, to Oldies, Rock and Classic Rock, Alternative and Triple A and back to News/Talk again.
I have some legendary call letters under my belt, in some amazing cities: WPLJ and WMCA in New York City; KLSX, KNX-FM, KODJ, KLOS, KSCA, KACD/KBCD in Los Angeles; WXRV in Boston; WBGG and WINZ in Miami, and more.
I performed in various capacities at those stations in positions ranging from Program Director and/or Music Director to hosting every daypart on-air. I’ve been a Promotion and Marketing Director, Producer, and even Production Director and Webmaster. At my current home at Radio or Not, I perform all of those function, plus those of chief engineer, cook and bottle washer.
My love of music led me to a career in radio, and my natural curiosity and thirst for knowledge and information expanded my chosen formats to talk. In the decades I’ve been making a living in this profession, I’ve played some really good music on a few amazing radio stations, and talked about the ways of the world on a both local stations and with people all over the country – and the world.
