Joann brings 25 years of broadcasting experience to the WLNG Broadcast House.
Born and raised in Huntington, Long Island, she first explored the East End while camping with her family in East Hampton, and Montauk. She attended LIU – Southampton before graduating with a communications degree from SUNY New Paltz. A quick stint at WTZA TV in Kingston, and it was off to the Southwest: Santa Fe, New Mexico.
This is where the love of FM radio happened. Hosting various shows on KTAO, KBAC (both heritage Adult Alternative formats), and KLBU- Santa Fe, the first ever 24 hour chill format in the US!
Family, and the ocean, called for a move back to Long Island in 2011. She settled back down in Southampton and broadcasted for WBAZ, and WEHM.
When Jo is not behind the microphone, you can find her cooking up something tasty at home, listening to new music, and taking that daily stroll along the beach.
