A true Motown girl from Detroit, Robyn’s got a story to tell. It’s her story that has opened up doors for her, since she began her radio journey. Like a lot of people, Robyn was often told what she couldn’t do. Growing up in the church as an altar girl, she aspired to become a priest, until some hating nun told her women can’t serve that way. The alternative – becoming a nun – was out of the question; they got up too early. But this was also the last ‘no’ she accepted.
Someone told Robyn she wouldn’t get accepted into Wayne State University. So, with her barely-passing grades, she did just that: the college had a program for people whose grades didn’t make the cut, but had a story to tell. Her love of music and speaking led her to apply to Specs Howard School of Broadcast Arts, but she failed the exam. Determined to turn every “no” into a “yes,” she recorded an audio demo for them, and they immediately accepted her into the program. So, with two small children, Robyn worked during the day and learned radio at night.
Robyn’s radio career began at home. But it wasn’t long before she was recruited to Cleveland, Ohio, then quickly promoted to Assistant Program Director. Her illustrious career includes on-air and managerial positions in different regions of the country, including: Columbia, South Carolina; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Albany, GA; and more.
Robyn’s current position brings her church upbringing full circle; she is the Midday personality on Glory 98.5 in Florence, South Carolina and she knows she owes her success to her Savior, and her parents.
Sharing her story of forgiveness has led some of her listeners and social media followers to mend the relationship with their biological families as well. From being accepted into broadcast school, to accepting others into her life middays on the airwaves, Robyn’s story remains the same: if she can do it, so can you.
