Hey there! I’m Georgia, the new weekend girl on New Country 97.3 the Eagle! After I graduated Christopher Newport University in 2018 I never thought I would have to do another one of these “fun facts about yourself,” but here we go…
What- That new radio girl
When- Saturday 3-7 pm, Sunday 6-10 pm
Where- 97.3 the Eagle
Why- Because radio is fun… ok so maybe that’s a bit oversimplified. Here’s the deal:
For as long as I can remember I have loved all things beauty, fashion, music, and entertainment. I always considered myself at the forefront of trends and inspiration– a hipster if you will– and was enamored by the beauty and success of all the artists in Hollywood. Looking back, I can only hope many of those fashion choices never make a comeback, even though they seemed like a great idea at the time haha. My first ever celebrity crush was Joe Jonas; to this day, that crush still stands and now is joined by Zac Efron, Ryan Reynolds, and Luke Bryan.
Since my first time stepping foot into an arena for a concert (for The Cheetah Girls and Hannah Montana of course), I have been fascinated by music and creativity. Over the years I cultivated my passion for art through dance and song; I danced competitively in college and sang very loud to every song that comes on in the car or shower.
I was lucky enough to intern here at the studios the summer before I graduated college and that was all it took to know I had finally landed my dream job. I am a firm believer that you never work a day in your life if you love what you do… and I certainly love radio! I started on our promotions team meeting all our wonderful listeners at events. Then I began work On-Air with Hot 100 for over a year before I made the cross into country music, a genre that has always been dear to my heart.
Every day is a new adventure and I am still learning every day, even after 2 years. Every time I am in the studio, put those headphones on, and turn the mic up, my heartbeat accelerates and adrenaline courses through my veins. I get so excited to live out my dream every day and hope to share that excitement and joy with each and every one of you as we embark on this journey together through the changing times of radio and the evolution of country music.
So until next time, be safe, make good choices, and have fun 🙂
