In the world of radio imaging Rena-Marie, simply put, is…..a……BADASS. If Joan Jett, Lady Gaga and Steven Tyler had a love child she would look and sound just like R-MV. Rock and Roll runs through her veins and her edge and attitude are the envy of the industry. And the feeling is mutual. There’s a history there; it’s been in her blood for a long time.
Rena-Marie got her start working in radio in 1990, at the age of 16. She began interning at a small commercial Smooth Jazz station in West Dover, VT, and quickly fell in love. She’d always loved music and talking to people, and radio was the perfect blend of those two passions. By 17, she was a licensed FCC broadcaster doing overnights and learning how to splice tape and create spots. Over the next 15 years, she’d work in a handful of beautiful mountain towns covering formats from Classic Rock to Triple A and Alternative Rock. She left radio in 2005 to pursue VO full-time, but kept her connection to her first love – and kept talking to listeners – by becoming an imaging voice.
She’s currently heard using her voice to brand “The Woody Show” in more than 30 terrestrial radio markets, Christopher Russo’s “Mad Dog Unleashed” on SiriusXM 82, Los Angeles’ Alternative KYSR “ALT 98-7,” Chicago’s Classic Rocker WDRV “97-1 FM The Drive,” Miami’s 90’s Hits Station WMIA “Totally 93.9,” Seattle’s Classic Hits KJR “95-7 The Jet,” Detroit’s Rocker WLLZ “Detroit’s Wheels,” San Diego’s Hot AC KMYI “STAR 94-1,” Charlotte’s Alternative WEND “106.5 The End,” Rockers WMMS, “100.7 The Buzzard” in Cleveland and KAAZ “Rock 106.7” in Salt Lake City, the network of WAY-FM Christian radio stations around the country and Slacker Radio online.
Having lived in 9 states, and moved over 30 times, her ability to adapt has made her versatile. Her resume, as diverse as her life experiences, is a reflection of that.
Rena-Marie works from her studio in the heart of Los Angeles. She’s always available on short notice via ipDTL and Source Connect.
