Brooklyn-born, Queens-raised and southern-certified radio personality Nuyork knows how to win the hearts, minds and ears of a loyal audience. Using instinctive drive, determination, authenticity and passion for music, not to mention natural beauty, the award-winning radio talent has earned the love and respect of listeners in multiple radio markets, and is a rising radio star true to the community she represents.
Nuyork was adopted at six months old and grew up in the foster care system, moving with her family to Huntsville, Alabama, at the age of 15. She learned to use and hone her voice as a member of her middle school, high school choir and church choir. Her drive helped her win a student internship at WEUP-FM, a 100,000-watt urban heritage station in Huntsville. She continued learning and volunteering while earning a degree from Alabama A&M University, and was offered her first on-air shift at Adult Contemporary station WHRP-FM, working weeknights from 7 p.m. to midnight, and on weekends. Shortly after graduating, she landed a position as a morning show co-host for for Cox Radio’s “BuckWilde Morning show” at 95.7 JAMZ in Birmingham. She stayed with the station through multiple staff changes, continuing as co-host for two later editions of the morning show, including alongside comedian Roy Wood Jr. When Summit Media purchased 95.7 and eight other Cox stations in 2013, she was retained as host of a new program, “Midday Access with Nuyork,” where she is currently on-air from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., as well as during midday shifts at CHR WHZT-FM, Hot 98.1, in Greenville, South Carolina, where she is known for dishing daily entertainment news and gossip on feature segments “The Scoop” and “NY Minute”. She’s also earned respect from peers, winning “Radio Personality of the Year” in 2015 at the Alabama Broadcasters Association’s “Abby” awards, and four other Large Market category awards for “Best Morning Show” from 2010 to 2013.
