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 Monday through Thursday mornings from 10-noon ET, and am also honored to be Randi Rhodes‘s regular guest host, filling in on her nationally syndicated program when she’s out or on vacation. 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.
