NICOLE REID – WAFCFM NEWS DIRECTOR
Nicole Reid is a graduate of the FAMU School of Journalism and Graphic Communication. Starting out in print journalism, she worked for her college paper and she’s written for several local newspapers in Southwest Florida. Nicole made the transition to broadcast journalism after working for Turner Broadcasting System in Atlanta, Georgia. Since then, she’s hosted pageants, festivals and contests using her signature singing jingles, exuberant laugh and jovial personality. Nicole operates as our resident, one-woman news team, public affairs director, morning show co-host and social media manager. An accomplished radio personality, Nicole is still searching for balance; raising 4 children under the age of 12 and finding time between breaking news to finish her favorite books and exercise.

Started my fun-filled Radio life when I was 16 growing up in Colorado! Worked and played at many great radio stations coast to coast. Living one day at a time, with a fresh baked cookie… Okay, and with a coffee and a beer later in the day. But I promise to take my vitamins. And of course I love my country music! The best there is right?
