Tanya Simpson brings over 30 years of quality and consistency to her work as a dynamic voice talent, radio announcer and media personality. A native New Yorker, Tanya's rich history in broadcasting began in the mid-80’s with her self-produced music show at Hunter College’s WNHC in New York City, majoring in Theater Arts and Communications. While there, she was hired for her first professional radio assignment as announcer in Newark, NJ taking on overnights and eventually middays at WNJR, then as morning show host at WDKX in Rochester NY, and later spent 5 years on-air in the vacant midday slot at AC station WMGQ in New Brunswick, NJ.
After a decade of working in the radio (and record) industry, Tanya made her way back to her roots in New York City radio as a Programming Assistant at WBLS during the early 90’s. It was no surprise that her powerful personality and versatile vocal delivery would enable her to host many formats of music programs, from soft rock to smooth jazz. In 1998, she spent over ten years fulfilling her lifelong dream of working at the legendary 98.7 Kiss Fm in New York City, on every daypart from mornings to evenings and undeniably became the ‘voice’ of the station, producing radio imaging and voice overs. Tanya is also a satellite radio pioneer. When Sirius XM emerged in 2000, she was selected as one of the first female on-air personalities to be hired as voice talent, then as morning show host. Equipped with a higher level of digital technology and creative programming, Tanya Simpson encompassed an enormous fan base over a 17 year period that connected her with over 40 million listeners/subscribers worldwide. Her special interests include podcasting, voice tracking, blogging, social media marketing/branding and editing audio/video content. She is currently open to all opportunities within this field of expertise.
