BELOVED RADIO VOICE
You may know me as the voice you heard coming out of your radio for 25 years on Magic 106.7. It was a long journey from secretary to co-hosting morning drive, but I learned so much along the way. There were so many highlights, but the two that mattered most to me were hearing my own songs on the radio and the creation of the weekly Exceptional Women show. Interviewing women is what I love to do and I’ve continued that with the launch of the weekly podcast series: The Story Behind Her Success. So far, more than 700 women have shared their stories with me and I’m not stopping! Women around the world are downloading these inspiring stories and now, I’m bringing them back to local radio with the creation of the Candy O Radio Network.
Mothers, daughters, sisters and friends all benefit from positive messages: shared wisdom, rooted in hope, love and perseverance. My goal is to create a place where inspiration is just a click away. Take a look around and be sure to join my Think Pink Club so that we can stay connected.
When we lift each other up, we all rise.
