Hi, I’m heather.

Senior Editor of RadioFidelity.com.

I’ve loved radio all my life. When I was eight years old, I decided I would be a radio personality by the time I was “big” or 18, because everyone knows that you’re officially a big kid at 18.

I volunteered at a nonprofit religious station at 14, handing out fliers for upcoming events at local concerts sponsored by the station. From there, I worked the merch tables.

Eventually, I was lending my voice to promotional spots until I went on air as a full-fledged talent.

My career has taken a few detours now and then, like a 12-year stint in higher education, but over 20 years later, the radio life continues to call me back.

You can find me on:

I live on the rainy Alabama Gulf Coast in Mobile with my husband Steve and rescue cat Indy. I enjoy reading, singing, crystal collecting, fashion, and crafting.


I entered college backwards – after I had a career in radio. I graduated with a bachelor’s in public relations from University of South Alabama in 2009, followed by a master’s in mass communication in 2011.
