Women In Radio Blog

The Women In Radio blog was started to help us cover topics that were too big to discuss on social media. Our mission of Women In Radio is to help and that's what the blog does. We write about the radio business culture, radio politics, radio listeners, and how we handle being a woman in radio.

Amy Reed: Be Passionate, Be Valuable, and Be Yourself!

By:Maya Perry

"Music obsessed, bare minimum adventure seeker, workoutter, always hungry, and I read.  "

When asked what Amy believes her brand is, she simply states “realness”.

In radio, most personalities describe themselves as voice actors or characters but Amy Reed chooses to not play any roles when it comes to radio. “I don’t lie about who I am or what I like/want/ do and it’s because that’s what I want to hear on the radio.”

She started in 2012 as Mornings and Middays on Live 95.9 in Pittsfield, then moved to Mornings on Eagle 97.7 in Delaware and then progressed and promoted to APD/Middays on Q93.5 in Columbia, SC.
