Rox: Tisha Lee making moves in mediaWritten by Martini Rox | | email@example.com
Last August, Tisha Lee made a move to national radio that left a void for local listeners. The Akron native graciously accepted a position as a co-host on Sheyl Underwood Radio as an entertainment reporter contributing to daily topics and conversation. Adding to her already full broadcasting plate, she also worked on the show’s promotions and production while maintaining similar daily duties for WJUC.
Locally, listeners recognized the void and WJUC briefly had weekend personality Big A.D. fill in mid-days until private deliberations were finished. On March 17, Lee returned to her audience while retaining optional duties for Sheryl Underwood Radio. Excited to return, she immediately got back to work for her community through radio. A graduate of Akron University’s communications/broadcasting program, Lee is a well-trained voice on air, but honed her impeccable production skills while working for WJUC.
She is called upon nationally and internationally by radio stations and DJs through her brand/production company, Golden Voice Media. She enjoyed her time on the national front basking in the spotlight with promotional trips to L.A. and working alongside a fellow female media powerhouse. Six months into her fabulous gig, working on someone else’s dream made her remember the dreams she put on hold to pursue the chance of a lifetime.
Lee has dreams of expanding her brand beyond radio, eventually focusing on her Golden Voice Media company full-time. As part of her comeback deal, listeners will enjoy an extra hour of Tisha Lee 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. She will remain production director for WJUC handling in-house and national commercials as well as upcoming promotions for the Steve Harvey Neighborhood Awards set to start April 21.
Martini Rox: What did you miss about your show?
Tisha Lee: I missed my listeners and the interaction with my listeners and the community, getting people on air, giving away prizes. … I also missed conducting interviews. Since I’ve been back I have interviewed singer Trevor Jackson, comedian Lil Duval and was able to speak to our friends at Lucas County Children Services for Child Abuse Prevention Month. It was an awesome opportunity, Sheryl Underwood was a lot of fun, I was able to see L.A. and I can’t wait to use what I have received from this experience and applying it to my show.
Martini Rox: You have always been involved in community work, what are you doing now that you’re back in full force?
Tisha Lee: Right now we are quite busy getting ready for the Toledo Neighborhood awards. We just wrapped up our YMCA annual scholarship campaign and that was very successful. We are also celebrating the 45th anniversary of the MLK Kitchen for the Poor on April 26 at Memphis Pearl in Sylvania, and would love to see everyone there.
Martini Rox: What exactly is Golden Voice Media?
Tisha Lee: Golden Voice Media is my media production company, specializing in voiceovers and imaging for radio, TV and narration. I have done production work across the world and will be expanding my team and my brand. We have some great things in the works.
Listen to Tisha Lee Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on 107.3FM or on www.tuneinradio.com.
